March 19, 2012: All the Superheroes Read Lei Feng



Sent to me from Beijing. The text at the top reads "The world’s superheroes all study" and the book they're holding and referencing (that is to say, the book they all study) is Lei Feng's Diary.
Lei Feng is a Great Leap Forward icon, that’s him on the right.

During 1964 the Lei Feng campaign shifted gradually from doing good deeds to a cult of Mao.

Superpeople get on my nerves. They're all freaky weird and socially inept.

Well, Wonder Woman was cool but I don't see her in that picture. I see a Kirstie Alley and a Sally Struthers, neither of whom is a superpeople.

Grav, have you seen Kirstie lately? She's looking good! (Again!) I feel Kirstie's pain.

People still worshipping Mao, the most successful mass murderer of the 20th century, outperforming Stalin and Hitler. Be proud, communists!

Things I learned from Lei Feng...

Never let anyone take your photo while wearing a silly hat. You never know where it might end up.

I thought all superheros either wear a mask or a funny hat, or at least a headband.

Fair point, HLJ, but that's why superheroes usually try to keep their true identity secret. Plus most ordinary people wouldn't have the balls to rip on a superhero for obvious reasons.

I love Moe Howard and all, but I don't know if superhero is the word I'd use ...

Wait, wasn't Superman a fascist rather than a commie? Cue UG in 3, 2, 1...
