Media for everyone is a delusional concept, and I am tired of comic book fans complaining about things being political. It's impossible for anything to deal concepts of justice and morality without being implicitly political. If you think the US government is a supervillains you can't treat us behavior neutrally. I view the US Empire as far more dangerous than the Nazis or Reds, so how am I going to send Superman to fight the SS of he's not also ridding the planet of the FBI terrorist plots?
The myth or illusion of neutrality came from gatekeepers and a time when the US population had more things in common, even then, it was not neutral. It simply took for granted things that only Boomers believe anymore.
The same goes for social media. I am so sick of people whining about bias. It's logically impossible to be unbiased and trying to do so just makes you weak and lame because you lack the cajones to take a stand on matters of life, death and civilization. I sure as FUCK don't want an apolitical superhero, I want one which reflects my values, which are inimical to both normie dumbocracy bullshit and Progressive pseudoscience cults.
These people are begging for something that doesn't exist of make sense. The fracture in ideology makes it impossible for people to have the same concept of what is heroic, and it's sheer ignorance to pretend otherwise.
Superman, Batman, Transhuman Philosophy and Politics
It's worth noting that Superman was created as a an embodiment of New Deal nonsense. I don't think a real Superman could exist without either taking over, destroying or making irrelevant political states, because they're obviously all criminal liars and Superman isn't stupid enough to fall for normie herd fantasies about God government. The reason this doesn't happen is twofold: lazy writers want a world that resembles the real one, and they're all a bunch of leftist hacks who don't really like superheros.
Project Superpowers has a good arc of Golden Age characters turning against the government, but it's got plenty of libtard allusions, as well. Like most normies, comic book authors refuse to contemplate that a spectrum exists outside of their two nearly identical, and equally shitty, low IQ meme parties.
In order to get the proper Superman, who's proud of his own superiority and doesn't respect thugs because they wear badges or rainbows, we'll have to destroy the intellectual property racket.
Personally I detest WW2 propaganda comics. There were no good guys in that war, except for the people trying to stay out of it. Superman beating up tyrants is no problem, but if he was consistent he'd karate chop FDR's head off. If you're going to have superheroes fight any government they need to be against all of them, because they're all in need of total annihilation.
There was a nod to this before the war, sadly not targeting FDR, but Hitler and Stalin equally. Comic books will never do politics in an interesting with political stories so long as they treat democracy as legitimate and the US government as anything but a wealthy terrorist.
Of course this would offend lots of people. Too bad. There are genuine philosophical and value differences that cannot be glossed over. America is too fractured to share the same political religion, and thus it cannot share the same mythology. This is why intellectual property must die, because right now the people who control much of America's cultural tradition are human trash and inflation profiteers who have a dubious right to their property, much less their Disney copyright whoring.
there doesn't seem to be anything here
