DC Comics revamps its Superman character to fit into the new American landscape. Superman takes on police brutality with the help of artist Aaron Kuder and colorist Tomeu Morey.
Excerpt from Counter Current News article:
By the end of the new “Action Comics” #41, a block party for Superman is disrupted by police in riot gear.
The onus is now shifting to a balance more reflected in the Constitution. The accusations of law enforcement are now being met with suspicion and skepticism, and with more and more cops caught on video behaving badly, the public is starting to wake up to the fact that the police have been treating people of some backgrounds, groups and classes very differently than others.
Now, a huge indication of that change in the social barometer is one of DC Entertainment’s big comic revamps this summer. In the revamp, most of Superman’s powers are gone — but he’s still superhuman, and basically still big as hell.
