They went there: Superman punches cop in 'Ferguson' parable

So much to say ... but why do so when the inimitable Doug Ernst does it so perfectly?

"We’re going to beat the hell out of you. And you’re going to crack. You’re going to fight back. And then we’re going to roll over every other moron on this street,” says Sergeant Binghamton to Superman.

*Sigh*

So "edgy." So "relevant." So ... predictable. The only thing missing is Superman holding his hands up in a "hands up, don't shoot" gesture.

You want to be really "edgy," comic creators? Try something like Steve Englehart's Capt. America "Secret Empire" story from the early 1970s -- but replace Richard Nixon/Number One with Barack Obama.

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's poorly conceived social commentary!

Comics were once known for challenging the social mores and assumptions of the society in the 1950s. Today they continue that fine tradition... by railing against the social mores and assumptions of the 1950s.
