DC Allows Statue Of Murdered Boy To Use Superman Logo

I guess people got upset, causing DC to reverse its decision. I'm happy those involved in the memorial process are able to remember the child as they were hoping to, and I would assume that by withholding permission and then relenting DC will have to negotiate more requests but won't necessarily leave themselves open to a flood of uses, some of which might represent a commercial use, without recourse.

I also pray for a world where this kind of request is wholly unnecessary, perhaps by the timely, fortunate intervention of one or more heroes in the course of a tragically abbreviated life.
