Today’s highly interesting read (10/15/21): ‘Woke’ Superman’s Mission Is Neither Bold Nor Brave

First Superman comic book sells for record-breaking $3.2 million - Los  Angeles Times

Dean Cain played Superman in the television series “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman that aired on ABC from September 12, 1993, to June 14, 1997.

Today’s read is from…Dean Cain! Here’s an excerpt:

DC Comics recently revealed that in an upcoming issue titled “Superman: Son of Kal-El,” the son of Lois Lane and Clark Kent would be bisexual, and that he’s going to fight “real-world problems.

A gay or bisexual superhero is not groundbreaking in 2021. It’s banal.

I have zero issue with that.

“Truth, Justice, and the American Way” is no longer the catchphrase of Superman. The new phrase? “Truth, Justice, and a Better World.” Okay, I’ll buy that, but what’s the vision that accompanies this more expansive view of social justice? What would make for a better world? Socialism? Communism? Forced equality?

To me, a better world is one in which people have more freedom and independence.

Protection from government overreach and corruption. Safety and security. In a word, the idea of America. A government of the people, by the people, and for the people – concepts laid out by our Founding Fathers during the creation of the United States of America.

Read Cain’s entire column here.
