Jeffrey Baldwin‘DC Entertainment uses a flexible set of criteria when we receive worthy requests such as this, and at times have reconsidered our initial stance,’ a DC Comics spokesperson said in a statement.

‘After verifying the support of appropriate family members, DC Entertainment will be allowing the Jeffrey Baldwin Memorial Statue to feature the Superman ā€˜Sā€™ shield.’

Following an inquest earlier this year, Ottawa IT worker Todd Boyce was touched by the words of Jeffrey’s father Richard in his testimony, and started raising money for a statue of Jeffrey.

Mr Baldwin had said: ‘He wanted to fly. He tried jumping off the chair. We had to make him stop. He dressed up (as Superman) for Halloween one year. He was so excited. I have that picture at home hanging on my wall. He was our little man of steel.’

Mr Baldwin added that before his teenage parents lost custody of Jeffrey to his maternal grandparents the little boy was very energetic and loved the superhero.

Mr Boyce’s appeal to raise money online was successful, and the statue was designed and the model created, with Jeffrey wearing his favorite costume.
