DC Comics has ripped a page straight from Washington for a recent politically-charged issue of “Superman,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Stop this!” Superman commands a gunman who is threatening to shoot undocumented immigrants with a machine gun.

“Why?” asks the gunman, who is wearing an American flag bandanna. “They ruined me! Stole from me!”
Superman then collars the white supremacist, telling him: ”The only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul — is you!”
The supremacist, who accused the undocumented immigrants of stealing his job, is cuffed by police; Superman instructs the officers to care for the victims and make sure they’re safe.
“Anything you say, Superman!” one cop replies.
The issue comes just a week after President Trump announced he would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era immigration policy that provides amnesty to undocumented people who were brought to the U.S. as children.
