Superman was created by two Jewish kids of Eastern European descent in the ’30s. Do you understand why Krypton had to be destroyed, do you understand what an illegal immigrant God-man who turns into the ultimate American and whose mortal enemy is a nativist industrialist and who protects and (arguably) betters his adopted home would have meant to two Jewish kids of Eastern European descent?
people totally lose sight of the fact that superman was written at a time when european-american immigrants were not part of the white hegemony. the superman narrative only makes sense in 2013 if he’s latino or middle eastern but nobody’s going to do that
I’d like to introduce you to President Black Superman:
Then, in the intervening years, something became apparent to our cosmologists.
The multiverse was real.
Flash Fact: Our universe is one of many, grown inside some unimaginable amniotic hypertime. It may even all be a hologram, projected onto a flat mega-membrane, which i, in turn, embedded, along with many others like it, within a higher dimensional space some scientists have dubbed “the bulk.” In the brane model of the multiverse, all history is spread as thin as emulsion on a celestial tissue that floats in some immense, Brahamic ocean of… meta-stuff. Got all that?
If cosmologists are right about this (and I’d dearly love to hope that they are), the superheroes, as usual, have been here already."
