DC Comics Has a Message About Superman and Diversity They Say is Always Relevant

Posted by April 6, 2018 Comment

DC Comics shared a famous picture of Superman speaking to schoolchildren about the importance of standing up for diversity on Twitter.

“Initially created by the Institute for American Democracy as a school-book cover, this ’50s-era piece features Superman speaking to school children about the importance of standing up for diversity, a relevant message no matter what era,” the company said in their tweet.

In the image, Superman tells the children, “…and remember, boys and girls, your school — like our country — is made up of Americans of many different races, religions, and national origins, so if you hear anybody talk against a schoolmate or anyone else because of his religion, race, or national origin — don’t wait: tell him THAT KIND OF TALK IS UN-AMERICAN.”

At press time, President Trump had not responded to the tweet.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
