Happy New Year!

2020. Wow! It’s really here.

Back in 1980, Superman comics depicted the future world of 2020…

So no, we are not living in floating cities with flying cars and controlled weather. Much less having a superhero around.

That’s the downside. On the upside, we’re not living in this either…

…yet.

Ya know, if DC Comics had any smarts at all, they would be selling a Superman 2020 collection right now, maybe with a new story or two included. Not just to coincide with the arrival of the year 2020, but the concept was perfectly suited to our Current Year in its wokeness.

See for yourself…

It’s got nazis! And a sop to concerns about overpopulation as well.

The nazis even have their own cool salute…

…and predicted the soyboy epidemic.

And best of all…

…even though these “Purists” are totally racist, they’re also not racist at all. Now that’s a hell of a trick.

Seriously, DC could make sales from a high-concept series and score virtue-signaling points all at once. They accidentally stumbled across a form of wokeness that might actually make a profit.

Then again, they might get in trouble for this…

Even in the imaginary future, some things never change.

Happy New Year!

  1. HNY! Excellent review of the preview. This is a very forward-looking backward look. Looking back on it all in retro-prescience, I can say that I look forward to this prequel’s sequel.
