After a campaign of public support and a lot of media attention, DC Comics has reversed its original decision forbidding use of its Superman logo on a statue of Jeffrey Baldwin, a child who was killed by his grandparents in 2002. When DC's original refusal was made public, the statue's supporters planned to change the stylized "S" on its chest to a "J"; in light of the outcry the comic-book corporation reconsidered, and decided to allow the logo's use after all.
