Superman is no longer a superhero for American values, nor does he care to protect the “American way.” Last week DC Comics announced the newest Superman is bisexual. In addition, Superman is so “woke” that DC Comics revealed it will be removing the popular Man of Steel’s mantra, “American way.”
DC Comics released its company’s new mission statement saying the superhero who has been known to fight for “Truth, Justice and the American Way” will now be fighting for “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow.”
But wait there’s more! Not only will Superman be in a same-sex relationship, he (if he still identifies as such) will also be combatting the climate crisis and protesting against the deportation of refugees.
DC Comic’s chief creative officer and publisher Jim Lee said over the weekend at a DC FanDome event, “To better reflect the storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor Superman’s incredible legacy over 80 years of building a better world, Superman’s motto is evolving.”
“Superman has long been a symbol of hope who inspires people, and it tis that optimism and hope that powers him forward with this new mission statement” added Lee. Series writer Tom Taylor told the New York Times “the idea of replacing Clark Kent with another straight white savior felt like a missed opportunity.”
The Guardian reports, “According to a report earlier this month, his new love interest is Jay Nakamura, a reporter who cares for him after he ‘mentally and physically burns out from trying to save everyone that he can’. His boyfriend is also revealed to have special powers.”
Just to recap: America’s famous “Superhero” is now a bisexual who is burnt out from his one job; i.e. the thing that made him a superhero. Lucky for Superman and his feelings, he has the love and support of a mainstream media reporter and fellow anti-American “wokester.”
