Four pages from ACTION COMICS 1 (heh, feels weird to say that)...

The first page of the issue:

This Glenmorgan guy is described by the cops as "Mr. Metropolis," very, very rich and powerful. The police arrive to rescue him from Superman.

With Lex Luthor's help, the authorities manage to lure Superman into a trap.

I didn't say it was impossible. I didn't report it to mods, for example, and it's not particularly a trigger for me. I said I wouldn't want to engage in this discussion here. I'm aware of a number of politically charged, serious graphic novels; in fact, my husband and I have a bookshelf containing only serious-themed graphic novels. We weren't discussing one in this post.

I said it's a sensitive topic. I was referring, specifically, to debating whether or not anti-Semitism was a significant or primary factor in the policies of nazi Germany, which in my experience can set a lot of people off. I'm not sure why someone would think that statement rated eight question marks, but thanks -- at my age, it's rather charming to have people imply that I'm naive.

And I'm done with this topic.

That's a very fair point.

Sorry. I'm used to talking with German history buffs about German history.

This is a topic that people are very legitimately sensitive about. Next time, take more care with your choices of words , especially after people have already said they were feeling uncomfortable about it. In particular:

"That's hardly the only thing the Nazis did, for good or ill. They're a fascinating bunch really."

"That's a mistake. The Nazis found Anti-Semitism convenient to their purposes, but it was never their main motive for their actions."

Those are the sort of comments that can sometimes be used as anti-Semitic and holocaust denial dog whistles. We trust this wasn't your intent; but, please, be more careful with the way you discuss that sort of topic in the future.
