We live in crazy times, my friends. Black is white, day is night, right is wrong, and now it seems Superman is a libtard snowflake. DOWN WITH SUPERMAN!
In the new issue of Action comics, Superman shields an undocumented worker from the bullets of a white supremacist who is fed up with a company that just laid him off, and decides to kill the undocumented workers he believes took his job.
Now, of course, the wacky alt-right has decided that Superman is a antifa puppet and DC comics is using this leftist propaganda to indoctrinate young minds.
The action of preventing a mass murder, which seems in line with Superman’s moral compass, hasn’t come without controversy. Fox News has a column calling the Man of Steel a “propaganda tool for the defenders of illegal aliens,” and the right-wing website Breitbart derided him as “Social Justice Supes.”
Their argument is that comic book writers and artists have inserted a pro–illegal immigrant agenda into their comics, and that it’s part of a larger trend of politicizing comic books.
Of course, the irony here is that Supes is the ultimate alien immigrant and that his creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, are the children of Jewish immigrants.
Picked up Action Comics #987 today. After calling about 4 comic book stores and telling me they sold out. Well what’s so special about this issue is that there are couple of panels depicting superman defending immigrants from a disgruntled employee’s gunfire. Besides this touching me personally, a lot of alt-right and some conservative right media outlets condemned this depiction of superman. Am I surprised that they are condeming this? Hell yeah; but times are crazy. Anyways I guess I’m a superman fan now. #superman #fuckwhitesupremacy #actioncomics #lovenothate
