Comics wank colliding with political wank: Like matter and anti-matter ...

I look forward to seeing the perfect storm of wank calm and rational debate that will ensue in the comments, between competing factions of both superhero comics fans and public policy ideologues.

Superman supports health care and welfare!

From back in the day when Superman used his moral force to say we should do this because it's the right thing to do for our neighbors, never mind if it cost us some tax dollars.

Of course, today he'd be attacked for his position because, after all, he's an illegal immigrant.

And like so many other illegals, we just want him to clean up our messes and do the jobs we can't do for ourselves for non-existent pay, but that doesn't mean we have to acknowledge when he might have a point.

But I could be mistaken. Is there someone out there who can explain why Superman is wrong?

(Hat tip to Kevin H and Wesley Osam.)
This was originally posted online near the end of August, but I don't recall seeing it on this comm, so I thought I'd share it with you all.

And humans are 97% identical to gorillas. Somewhat biologically similar takes in everything from the gibbon to the gorilla, so that's not entirely saying that Superman could breed with humans in any case.

Similar enough that somehting that is half Lex and half Superman to be biologically viable. That is more so than humans and gorillas.

Actually, the difference between humans and chimpanzees is less than rats and mice. Presumably a human-chimp hybrid could be made providing the chimp wasn't interested in tearing the human apart if he sooner or later got pissed. Still not enough.
