the comic book industry was built on the back of jewish creators, superhero comics were pioneered by jewish creators. everything we have today from superman to captain america, is down to the creativity of jewish artists and writers. and todays comics do nothing but spit on that legacy

Our culture and experiences shaped these characters. Shaped this legacy.

Superman is living embodiment of tikkun olam. Kal-El is literally hebrew, he is given Clark Kent a gentile name on earth he is based on the jewish immigrant experience. The hope of two jewish boys during the depression.

Captain America is literally Erskine’s golem. Erskine is jewish man who forced out Germany, he gave a good man the ability to become a super solider. Because jews needed hope.

Ripping characters away from their jewish roots is an incredible disrespect to the people who built the universes we’ve grown to love.
