Metropolis, Illinois, has a Superman statue. Philadelphia has immortalized Rocky in bronze. Detroit has a much-publicized Robocop statue. Why shouldn't Edmonton be home to a statue of its fictional hero, Wolverine?
About 3,000 people have signed a Change.org petition calling for the mayor and city council of the Alberta's capital city to put up a life-size statue of the Marvel superhero in City Hall. At least one city councillor says he isn't opposed to the idea.
