Super-Celebrities Unite For Day Of Service

What brought Superman, Spider-Man, Usher and Oprah Winfrey together? They all answered Barack Obama's call for service Monday. The president-elect called for a "day on" instead of a day off to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Along with Usher, actors Brandon Routh and Tobey Maguire — who portray Superman and Spiderman, respectively — helped build shelves in the library at Simon Elementary School in southeast Washington, D.C., and Oprah's crew documented the project.
