West Hollywood has a superheroic new statue in its park and by the looks of things, this homoerotic outdoor art featuring DC Comics iconic Batman and Superman, is perfectly timed for the city's annual Gay Pride festivities.

It looks like this replica of the original marble statue has been inspired by Michelangelo's 'The Creation of Adam' ceiling painting, with the alien Man of Steel taking the place of God and the Caped Crusader reaching out his finger to his daddy.

Cooper checked out the latest addition to the neighbourhood

After all the 'May grey' and 'June gloom' weather this new statue certainly brightened my day, although the only improvement could be the addition of a matching Wonder Woman statue (check out my West Hollywood Halloween costume for the reason why).Cosimo Cavallaro's Jelly Beans in the park in 2013 (despite all the signs asking not to).
It'll be fun walking past this alternative Dynamic Duo with Cooper on our morning walks and I'm sure lots of other passersby will also get a kick out of it too.
I hope Robin isn't too heartbroken...
UPDATED: I've since learned that the sculpture will be there for the next six months and it's meant as the artist's homage to same sex marriage and respect for all.
