Superman. Freaking Superman! Combating for reality, justice, and the American method! Yeah, no. How can I put this, gently? The brand new Man of Metal is in a same-sex relationship, battling the “local weather disaster” (aka: “the existential risk of our instances”), and protesting towards the deportation of unlawful immigrants. You in?
Me? Oh, hell no.

As reported by the Guardian U.Okay. newspaper, Jonathan Kent, the brand new iteration of Superman, is bisexual, in line with DC Comics. The historically heterosexual superhero will embark on a same-sex relationship with a good friend in a brand new comedian ebook collection. “Jon,” who’s the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, began his tenure in July.
DC Comics introduced Superman’s “transition” on Monday morning.
“The thought of changing Clark Kent with one other straight white savior felt like a missed alternative,” Tom Taylor, the collection author, stated in an interview with the New York Instances. Ah, inadvertent honesty.
That “missed alternative” the collection author pointed to is a chance to additional ram down the throats — indoctrinate — the false notion amongst American children that the world of the unconventional left is the world of the “woke” amongst us.
Jon’s new love curiosity is Jay Nakamura, a reporter who cares for him after he “mentally and bodily burns out from making an attempt to save lots of everybody that he can” in a problem of Superman: Son of Kal-El #5, to be launched in November. Nakamura can be revealed to have particular powers.
Hawaii’s KITV4 had an attention-grabbing tackle bi-sexual Superman, calling earlier Males of Metal “besotted” (blindly or completely infatuated) with Lois Lane. In different phrases, a (regular) heterosexual relationship.
BI-SEXUAL SUPERMAN | Till this yr, although, each comedian iteration of Superman has been besotted with longtime love Lois Lane. However in an upcoming subject of a brand new “Superman” collection, the Man of Metal enters right into a queer relationship. https://t.co/dgGGtiz1NG

In line with the Guardian, Kent’s sexuality isn’t the one method during which the character has been up to date for a brand new viewers and period. Current points have seen him protesting towards wildfires brought on by local weather change, stopping a highschool capturing, and protesting the deportation of unlawful refugees in Metropolis.
Does anybody in his or her (or no matter’s) proper thoughts suppose the action-packed-video-game-loving children of America are going to be excited by the above crap? Rhetorical query.
The collection author Taylor advised the NYT in a press release (see the hyperlink, above):
“I’ve at all times stated everybody wants heroes and everybody deserves to see themselves of their heroes and I’m very grateful DC and Warner Bros share this concept.
“Superman’s image has at all times stood for hope, reality, and for justice. [You “forgot” out “the American way,” Tom.)
“Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics.”
As noted by the Guardian, the introduction of a bi-sexual Superman follows other recent attempts to add queerness to the world of comics. In August, it was announced that the latest version of Robin (Batman’s sidekick) would have a boyfriend, while in March, Marvel also decided to pass the mantle of Captain America to a gay character.
But the big-screen plans of Marvel and DC Comics remain less progressive, according to the Guardian. I must be honest, here. I have no idea (about which, I’m pleased) who the following characters are.
Per the Guardian:
Tessa Thompson’s character in Thor: Ragnarok was only revealed as bisexual in a tweet while Deadpool’s sexual fluidity has yet to be fully explored. [Gripping as hell, ain’t it?] This November’s Eternals is about to alter issues with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first LGBTQ+ kiss between Brian Tyree Henry’s Phastos, the primary brazenly homosexual superhero in a Marvel film, and Haaz Sleiman, who performs his husband.
Okay — sufficient. If you realize — or care about — something contained in that earlier paragraph, please dial 800-GET-A-LIFE.
By the way, an in depth good friend referred to as me this morning to interrupt the cataclysmic information about (the demise of) Superman as we all know him. Not solely is the “information” emblematic of the Left’s drive to destroy America as we all know it, it’s insidious. These individuals by no means cease, they usually by no means get sufficient. Like spoiled kids.
And they’re consuming the American elephant one chew at a time.
