Last thing on Superman Smashes the Klan for now: what makes this story so special is how it takes pains to show that even the Klansmen have qualities that let them think of themselves as good people. The uncle character stresses self-respect, integrity, and honesty with his nephew even as he’s preparing go to a cross-burning. Superman’s ability to make them see that they’re not living up to their own values is exactly the sort of lesson we should be getting out there in the Trump era. DC could be doing this with its films but instead it’s making Joker.
