December 19, 2001: Ending Hatred of U.S. is a Job for Superman!

The New York Post recently published an article titled: "Ending Hatred of U.S. is a Job for Superman" written by Gersh Kuntzman, which talks about the effort to use Superman and other comic book super-heroes in an effort to reduce hatred towards the U.S. in other countries. Here's an excerpt from the article...

THERE'S more than one way to fight for truth, justice and the American way.

While America's armed forces battle in the mountains of Afghanistan, one idealistic New York businessman believes it's time to call in another group of American heroes.

Or, more accurately, American SUPER-heroes.

After all, who better than Superman, the original defender of "truth, justice and the American way," Batman, the original caped crusader, or Spider-Man, the original half-man, half-spider crime-fighting freakazoid, to demonstrate the worthiness of American values?

"These superheroes believe in universal rights and wrongs, they don't lie, and they defend the defenseless," said Sharad Devarajan, president of Gotham Entertainment Group, which has deployed America's superheroes throughout India and is now poised to do the same in Pakistan.

After that, who knows? Maybe even Afghanistan.
