In the months that followed, Heroes Park was built with a statue of the alien hero located in the center of the public park.
In 2015, former Wayne Enterprises employee Wallace Keefe, who was paralyzed from the waist down during the Battle of Metropolis, was arrested for spray-painting the words "False God" across the statue's chest.
Following the Duel of Gotham City, the statue was destroyed by Superman as he fought the creature known as Doomsday. The remains of the statue were later replaced with a memorial honoring the fallen hero.
In 2017, Superman returned and found that parts of the crumbled statue were still there within the park.
