The fictional character is being honored by an actual state.

Superman has finally made it big. The DC superhero and his mild mannered alter-ego has been inducted into the Kansas Hall of Fame, which honors "great leaders, innovators, historical giants, artists and entrepreneurs who have a direct connection to Kansas and who have made significant contributions to our state, the nation, or the world."
The character will be inducted into the Hall of Fame along with James Naismith (the inventor of basketball, the band KANSAS, Karl and Will Menninger (pioneers in psychiatry), and the 1st Kansas Colored Infantry. It's good to know that Superman's on an equal level with decorated army veterans and the writers of the song "Release the Beavers".
However, Superman is not the first fictional character to be inducted the Hall of Fame. That honor goes to Marshall Matt Dillon of Gunsmoke. However, comic book fans can rest easy that Superman could take on Dillon in a fight and beat the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway, another Kansas Hall of Fame member, in a race.
