Yeah, one DC artist who works specifically on this "Son of Kal El" series has had enough.
A comic book colorist says he is fed up with the left turn at DC Comics and he is quitting over the latest left-wing change to the Superman character.
Gabe Eltaeb made the comments during a guest appearance on a YouTube show hosted by Cyberfrog creator Ethan Van Sciver.
"What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world. F*** that it was Truth, Justice, and the American way," said Eltaeb.
Eltaeb said that he was leaving DC Comics when his contract was up because he was upset with how the company is ruining the legacy of their characters.
"I'm finishing out my contract with DC. I'm tired of this s***, I'm tired of them ruining these characters; they don't have a right to do this," he continued.
Technically, they do have the right to destroy everything they've built and run their company into the ground, but I get what he's saying.
"My Grandpa almost died in World War II. We don't have a right to destroy s*** that people died for to give us," Eltaeb said. "It's a bunch of f***ing nonsense."
While Superman is just a character in a comic book, it's important to realize the psychological capital he's tapping into.
In every culture, there is a mythology of heroes and villains – both real and from folklore – that creates a share social fabric and defines good vs. evil. America shed both the ancient mythology of Europe and the Christian faith (sadly), creating a need for something to fill that gap.
So while it may be a bit extreme to say soldiers gave the ultimate sacrifice for fictional characters, there's a weight we all feel behind Eltaeb's words.
I bet you'll feel this next statement in your bones as well:
"They call us bigots and racist and s***, I would ask them, find me in the f***ing mainstream, not on the fringes, one f***ing book, one f***ing t-shirt, one movie that says that leftism is bad, and conservatism is good, find it for me, they f***ing won't they're not letting people have a voice, they're the f***ing bigots," he said.
"Sorry," Eltaeb added, "that's been bottled up for five years."
This video from Eltaeb where he talks about how his family has stood up to actual tyrants is worth checking out as well:
"Standing up to tyrants is the American way."
I think the silent majority is about to get loud!
