2011 Superman's Dark Secret: An Unaired Episode of Super Friends

Idol-Head mathematicscore shot me a link to this wrongly funny cartoon from Team Tiger Awesome, hosted at Cracked.com. I strongly recommend you visit the site, as the widescreen video is much too dinky in this embed to be enjoyed. The Martian Manhunter has a one line cameo, but he's current, and all the dirty words are bleeped out. Still, the subject matter is a bit touchy, so this may be somewhat work unsafe.


For the faint of heart, the 2:44 video reveals that Superman is in fact a deeply racist birther who refuses to save President Obama from the Legion of Doom. Black Lightning, Wonder Woman, and Batman argue with the Teapartier of Steel...

Wonder Woman (whispering): "You're an alien."
Superman: "Krypton didn't have black people."
Batman: "What about the Martian Manhunter?"
J'Onn, flexing his chest muscles while smoking in a corner: "S'up?"
Batman: "Do you not like him because he's green?"
Superman: "Green Martian are like the white people of Mars."
Wonder Woman: "What about the White Martians?"
Superman: "They're like the Asians."
Wonder Woman: "Wow."

I've said it once and I will say it again, but modern Superman is a liberal.

I mean, a boy from the farm leaves home to get an education about how the world "really" works, becomes a "crusading reporter" for a newspaper and fights against an almost farcical, comically evil Big Business leader? Plus his anti-military, anti-business, "liberated," modernist wife? Oh, and his highly decorated Army father-in-law not only is an intolerant bigot but also one of his most major adversaries of the last decade who was an adamant advocate for genocide? This is like fanfic from The Daily Kos.

That having been said, putting this in the context of the Superfriends makes it more fitting, not to mention funnier. The bit about White Martians cracked me up, along with Black Vulcan's first name. I wish the stinger had been the orphanage in Suicide Slum!

All fine points, Luke. Honestly, Clark is such a namby-pamby nowadays, he could be filed as a moderate whatever and it would still be accurate labeling. That guy has bored me to tears for something like twenty years. Superman hasn't got enough personality to have personal politics. No wonder Hal Boredan managed to slip into the DC second rank spot.

That was pretty funny. I liked the "nobody else gets his own fountain!" bit.

I don't know why they had J'onn smoking but it made me laugh nonetheless. I guess that's the whole reason he wanted to kick the fear of fire?
