In the latest Man of Steel comic from DC Comics, Superman protects a group of illegal aliens from a white supremacist who is upset about losing his job.
In the latest issue of Action Comics #987, Superman saves a group of illegal immigrants by standing in front of them as an evil white man with an American flag bandana tries to shoot them for taking his job.
The comic, entitled “The Oz Effect,” depicts Superman blocking the bullets fired at the illegal immigrants as he commands the despicable white man to “Stop this!”

“They ruined me! Stole from me!” the white man says.
The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you!” Superman replies.

When police arrive, Superman, who is meant to fight crime, tells the authorities to make sure the illegal immigrants are “safe and cared for.”
“Anything you say, Superman!” one officer responds.
According to DC Comics, Superman is no longer American. He once stood for “truth, justice, and the American way,” but now he is merely a “citizen of the world.”
One could draw the conclusion that Superman himself is an illegal alien.
Comments on the subject of the comic were unsurprisingly negative on Twitter.
Superman already renounced his American citizenship. So I guess it's a logical digression to help destroy the life of working Americans.

In 2011, Superman claimed he could no longer identify as American as “the world’s too small, too connected,” to only work with the United States.
DC Comics should be careful not to fall into the same social justice trap Marvel did with Black Panther and the Crew.
The comic followed Black Panther, Misty Knight, Luke Cage, Storm, and former Avenger Manifold in their fight against police violence in Harlem. The story was based around a character named Ezra Keith, who dies while in police custody.
Unsurprisingly, Black Panther and the Crew was canceled after only six issues.
