FOX News Has A Problem With ‘Illegal Alien’ Superman Protecting Immigrants

A comic book character who exemplifies courage and a desire to stick up for those who can’t protect themselves is super not okay with a FOX News radio host who thinks the whole facade is, quite frankly, propaganda.

Superman has met his  newest nemesis and his name is Todd Starnes.

Starnes says “The Man of Steel has now become a propaganda tool for the defenders of illegal aliens.

He’s referring to a scene in DC Comics #987 where Superman comes to the rescue of some immigrants who are being harassed by a white man wearing an American flag bandana, who’s blaming them for taking is job. And according to Starnes (who assumes they are “illegal” even though their status is not mentioned):

Instead of rounding up the illegals and flying them back to where they came from, the Man of Steel snatches the white guy and with a menacing look snarls, “The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you.”

Starnes then goes on to lament a bygone era when Superman stood for truth, justice and the American way: “Then again, Clark Kent is technically an illegal alien – a native of Krypton.” Low blow, Starnes.

Dan Jurgens, who wrote the comic in question, was having none of it on Twitter:

As HuffPo points out, Starnes fails to have issue with another scene in the very same issue where Superman comes to the rescue of some rich people whose homes are threatened by an arsonist. “What do you care if I torch these one-percenters mansions,” the man setting the blaze tells Superman. “They’re stealin’ from us! They deserve to suffer!”

As for the future of DC Comics, Starnes has unleashed his own superpower of predicting the future: “I reckon it’s only a matter of time before DC Comics unleashes other superheroes in its corporate quest to defend the alien invaders.”
