Superman is America’s iconic superhero. He appeared on the comic scene in Action Comics #1 in June 1938. If you have this issue, you could be a millionaire. “On August 24, 2014, a copy graded 9.0 by CGC was sold on eBay for $3,207,852.”
The Superman character has been about “truth, justice, and the American way.” Superman has never been just about America. That’s a good thing. Unfortunatley, Superman is now a “citizen of the world,” whatever that means.
Of course, there is no Superman. He is the extension of a script writer’s imagination and an artist’s visual interpretation.
It’s not an actual Superman protecting illegal aliens making a political statement; it’s the person writing the script. Superman’s words and the interpretation of those ideas belong to the writer and the artist and possibly an editorial board.
There is no real Superman!
The latest interpretive dustup is about Superman saving some immigrants from a very bad guy who’s wearing an American flag bandana. Good for Superman. Does it matter that the victims are immigrants, legal or illegal? Wouldn’t Superman save anyone? Wouldn’t you? You would not turn your back on some immigrants if they were about to be killed if you were bulletproof. Would you even ask if they were in the United States legally? Of course, you wouldn’t.
