So DC did a quick change on today’s issue of Superman #712. The story was broken this morning by Jill Pantozzi of Newsarama. Then Chris Sims over at CA got to wondering if, just maybe, there were some last minute concerns with a Muslim character being featured in the issue so soon after the controversies about the French Muslim Batman, Nightrunner and Superman renouncing his citizenship. But then Rich Johnson at BC said it wasn’t a Muslim hero that caused the story being canned, it was Superman saving a kitten. Can’t have that in the “grim and grimmer” new world of DC.
The sad part? Based on what goes on at DC I could believe both stories. And that says something right there.
But if the problem is superheroes with kittens, here’s a kittenrific one (art by the wonderful Steve Rude).
