Superman

Did you know Canada..  while we can't take all the credit, Superman is at the very least half-Canadian.

Canadian Joe Shuster and American Jerry Siegel were the creators of the super hero. Shuster had given many interviews describing how Canadian Superman really was.

* The name Clark Kent came from a worker at the Toronto Daily Star

* One of the earliest panel drawings including a background of a newspaper building labeled "Toronto Star" (it was later changed to The Daily Planet)

* Superman’s city, Metropolis, was modeled after Toronto

* Of course, who hasn't seen this fantastic Part of Our Heritage as well..
