Mark Judge, the former classmate of Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh named as a witness by Christine Ford to an event in which she says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s, is apparently a big fan of Superman.

Which Superman comics, however, isn’t the only line of questioning Judge is avoiding. Following in the footsteps of the caped superhero’s storied ideals — truth, justice, and refusing to testify to Congress about the alleged sexual assault of a Supreme Court nominee — Judge will not appear at confirmation hearings for his boyhood chum, though he did send a letter to Congress claiming not to recall the incident.
“Well, that settles that then,” said Senate Republicans eager to approve literally any conservative nominee before the midterm elections.
