Fighting Jihad in a Politically Correct Comic Book World

Superheroes have never been more culturally dominant than they are in the age of the billion dollar Marvel or DC blockbuster and have never been less relevant.

The emotional momentum of the idealism of Superman creators Siegel and Shuster, Batman creator Bob Kane being viciously beaten up as a boy and fantasizing about vigilante justice have died out leaving behind a lifeless cast of familiar characters owned by movie studios going through the same routines, dying and being reinvented just long to become the same thing all over again.

    In the battle of truth vs political correctness… this comic is a huge boost to the conversation. We need more brave souls, not just superheroes, to fight the good fight.

    When I was a kid, I thought comics were for stupid kids who needed pictures in order to read. I found my super-heroes between the covers of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan, the planet Mars, and the inner-earth world of Pellucidar ruled my imagination for years. Comics were for the challenged, from what I could see.

    Time and tide have softened my opinion about comics and comic-book heroes, largely because the whole Star Wars movie thing is even more ridiculous. I still wish people could read better and thus read more. We could all benefit from a more intellectually stimulated population.
