    Austin mayor dubs city 'Green Lantern'
    Leffingwell: State of the city is getting stronger



    AUSTIN (KXAN) - DC Comics superheroes Batman, Superman and the Flash snuck into the State of the City address on Friday morning -- amid the typical talk of jobs and growth.

    Austin got the bold honor of being dubbed the "Green Lantern," possessing a power ring and power lantern that gives Austinies great control over the physical world as long as they have sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. New York, Chicago and Los Angeles are Superman, Batman and the Flash, respectively.

    "Austin is the Green Lantern," said Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell. "We are a city without fear. We are a city that can create anything we can visualize, through sheer force of will. We are a city with a special charge to shine a light into the darkness and lead the way to a new and better day."

    The optimistic mayor depicted a city "full of smart, driven, courageous and compassionate people" during the State of the City on Friday morning.

    "People who makes things happen," said Leffingwell. "People who keep moving forward no matter what."

    The mayor said the state of the city is getting stronger. While Leffingwell said that there have been many obstacles, he was adamant that the City of Austin has remained strong even in the face of those difficulties.

    During the mayor's second State of the City, he outlined three basic approaches:

    * Focus on the fundamentals
    * Play to our strengths
    * Tackle big problems head-on

    I am ashamed that my city is associated with Superman boooooooooo
    I LOVE conspiracy theorists. They are like human versions of the cymbal clapping, dancing monkeys. No one takes them all that seriously and they get bored with them after about 10 minutes.

      I would have said
      New York - Metropolis,
      Chicago - Gotham,
      Detroit - Keystone,
      LA - Coast City,
      Seattle - Star City.

      But why do they compare cities to characters?

                      I'm an Austinite. This city has a slogan: "Keep Austin Weird" and the mayor is certainly doing his job in that regard.

                          All that means IG is that all of your cities history will be retconned and anything important happened 5 years ago and everything else before that never happened.

                            Also, any inappropriate relationships Austin may have had with other cities are now explained that she was much older than she looks.
