So my favorite Superman comic is the one where billionaire villain, Lex Luthor, decides to run for President of the United States. He is able to spawn a lot of money on slick propaganda pieces in the media and attracts a lot of attention to his anti alien (immigration) platform. He campaigns on people’s fears, and is able to gain support this way. Many also point to his reputation as a business man for why they want to vote for him. Luckily, there are members of the media, like Lois Lane, who question him but when they do, they are attacked.
At the end of the day, the people realize who the real hero is, Superman! Superman is someone who looks out for the marginalized among society. He uses his super powers for truth, justice, and the American way. People see that, like Superman, they are able to help their fellow persons by offering each other respect, kindness, and a helping hand when needed.
And while South Carolina just took a step on Saturday in electing our real life Luthor (Trump), next Saturday we have the chance to send someone to combat him, Superman (Bernie Sanders). Please remember to vote Saturday. And while you’re at it, bring a friend with you.
