Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 18, 2021

For decades, the iconic comic-book character Superman has stood for "truth, justice and the American way." But apparently those days are over. DC Comics, the longtime publisher of Superman comics, now says the Man of Steel stands for "truth, justice ... and a better tomorrow," according to a report. The change reflects a broader, more global vision for the world of Superman, Jim Lee, DC's chief creative officer and publisher, said Saturday during the company's virtual DC FanDome event, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"To better reflect the storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor Superman's incredible legacy over 80 years of building a better world, Superman's motto is evolving," Lee said. ... The motto change was the second half of a recent 1-2 punch for fans of the traditional Superman. Last week came news that an upcoming Superman comic book will feature Jon Kent " son of Superman's alter-ego, newspaper reporter Clark Kent " as a bisexual Superman.

Next they're going to make Captain America into Captain Planet.

(Luckily the Captain Planet name is taken)

Hunter: I don't give a damn about what you'd rather forget about. Why were you two fighting?
Rivetti: I said, the Kirby Silver Surfer was the only real Silver Surfer. And that the Moebius Silver Surfer was ----. And Bennefield's a big Moebius fan. And it got of hand. I pushed him. He pushed me. I lost my head, Sir. I'm Sorry.
Hunter: Rivetti, you're a supervisor. You can get a commission like that.
[Snaps finger]
Rivetti: I know, Sir. You're 100 percent right. It will never happen again.
Hunter: It better not happen again. If I see this kind of nonsense again, I'm going to write you up. You understand? [No answer] Do you understand?
Rivetti: Yes, Sir.
Hunter: You have to set an example even in the face of stupidity. Everybody who reads comic books knows that the Kirby Silver Surfer is the only true Silver Surfer. Now am I right or wrong?
Rivetti: You're right, Sir.
Hunter: Now get out of here.
Rivetti: Yes, Sir.

What exactly is the "American Way"?

I've always thought it was taking whatever you want, and to hell with the people, landscapes, resources, or sensibilities involved.

Total selfishness as a secular religion and tenet of faith.

American's don't commit War crimes, regrettable mistakes were made, nothing to get too upset about.

American's don't take the cream of everything and leave the dross for the little people,we are the exceptional nation,we see further and deserve the best and most expensive of everything.

American's don't have the Worst record of Evironmental protection, we are number one in our development of capital resources, you don't achieve economic greatness without cutting a few trees.

In short the American Way is Capital Gains before peace,the earth itself,the truth,or anything else that gets in it's way.

Worship It;...... The Cult of Shareholder Value.

Well, as a proud owner of "Silver Surfer #1", Kirby is the ONLY Silver Surfer.

The "American Way" from seventy five years ago sure as hell aint the same thing as the "American Way" today.
