Some losers at DC Comics would rather indoctrinate their readers with politically correct social justice crap than actually write a decent story, because let’s face it – it’s a lot harder to write something worth reading:

Yes, Action Comics #42 offer a new and idiotic vision of Superman as an anti-police officer protester.
The new issue comes from the minds of Greg Pak and Aaron Kuder, who have imagined a much darker story for arguably the world’s most iconic superhero. The comic has been making waves for its controversial theme as the parallels to the riots in Ferguson and St. Louis are impossible to ignore.
In the issue, Clark Kent’s secret identity has been revealed, he has been stripped of most of his powers and he’s ditched his tights. Instead, Kent wears just a T-shirt and jeans, along with tatters of his Superman cape over his fists.
The downtrodden hero returns to a town that is fearful of him. Although a group of his supporters decide to celebrate his return, the police department soon arrives to break up the party. One of his supporters gets unruly, the police get angry, and before long, a full blown riot breaks out. The comic ends with Superman punching a police officer in the face.
What the hell, why not? Every other aspect of modern pop culture makes children into lawless degenerates, might as well toss in comics too.
Patrick Colligan, president of the NJ State Policemen’s Benevolent Association called the comic “disgraceful.” And he’s right. Which is why no one reads comics anymore.
