Superman Says, "Hop on the Welfare Wagon!"

In light of the U.S. Government shutdown, I thought we might want to hear some perspective from Superman himself, courtesy of Action Comics #169:


Wow!  Regardless of where you fall on the whole issue, it's interesting to see a comic editorializing like that.  It was certainly a different time!

Meanwhile, in Green Lantern volume 1, #14:






I don't know about you, but I would buy the heck out of a comic that was nothing but Walter and Mabel arguing.  Just arguments... no making up, no resolutions, just 27 pages of them bickering with each other, and I'll happily plop down a few bucks.

See you tomorrow!

These days Mr Stanton would be a birther - and even then, wasn't Superman an illegal immigrant?

Good question... I'm not up on my Superman history... but I'm pretty sure he made his origin public, so was he ever officially granted U.S. Citizenship?

In the Byrne reboot he was technically born in America. That's been retconned, though. http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2012/12/29/the-abandoned-an-forsaked-so-where-was-superman-born/
