Superman is a refuge everyone:
Superman always stands up for what’s right. Did you know he’s a refugee? Refugees contribute to the fabric of our society. Stand on the right side of history this World Refugee Day. #StandWithRefugees and @theIRC https://t.co/cifai799Rl pic.twitter.com/USvEq6Xmhp

Warner Bros. does know he’s not real, right?
Did you know he's a cartoon…? https://t.co/PXwXvCMSpH

But since we’re playing this game, Superman is also a symbol of everything that’s wrong with the patriarchy:
He's a cisgender white male authoritarian figure who used his power to seduce a woman while hiding his identify from her and putting the entire planet at risk while protecting the patriarchy.

Or maybe Warner Bros. thinks putting refugees with Christian families in Iowa and hiding their true culture from them makes sense?
Yeah, man, you take refugee babies, put them with god-fearing mid-westerners to raise them from infancy, and keep them from discovering their culture of origin until they reach maturity, they'll turn out American as apple pie. Brilliant take, Warner Bros! https://t.co/xAyv4a6VE8

And to be fair, illegal immigrant who came to America as an unaccompanied minor is probably a better description than “refugee”:
He's actually an illegal alien, an unaccompanied minor, who was adopted by the Kents through legal channels, then raised completely separated from the culture of his birth; as a result, he thinks like, acts as, and perceives himself to be a fairly standard Midwestern WASP. https://t.co/6ALUDQ4ZRU

And let’s not forget that Superman is responsible for the deaths of thousands:
AYFKM? Did you see what he did to Metropolis? And then he just broke that guy's neck instead of bringing him to justice. He wasn't even indicted for that. Cyborg wouldn't have gotten a pass for that shit and he's AMERICAN. https://t.co/zMb8Yn2FYI

Oh, and again, since we’re playing this game…
General Zod also came from Krypton. Is he a refugee, too? If so, there’s a lesson to be learned from that, too and it’s not the one Warner Bros. is hoping for:
I'm not even a DC person, but wasn't General Zod also a refugee, from the same planet?
But he was a bad guy, and inconveniently enough Zod didn't assimilate and instead chose to reshape Earth to his standards with no regard for the native population
but anyway virtue signalling https://t.co/c7bGKEM9sT

Yes, yes … we’re joking about all of that. Superman is great. But why does everything have to get political?
Thanks for injecting your BS politics into this too
