Superman is not the best thing for Metropolis. Ever notice that all the other major cities remain somewhat untouched but the one he lives in gets the crap beaten out of it? The Mayor of Metropolis is spending so much of the budget rebuilding the city that the the arts and schools get almost nothing. The homeless population get no support from the council and to make matters worse it’s really hard to actually see the homeless population of Metropolis because they are all dressed in suits, suits donated by an anonymous benefactor who leaves them in phone-booths all around town. Let’s face it, the best thing Superman does for Metropolis is clothing the homeless.
So if you want a real hero you should meet Sally Gyles. Sally is traveling to India to get kids out of child labor and in to schools. She needs help fundraising so if you flick her a few bucks you will in turn be helping give some really destitute kids a future. Sally is doing much more than leaving suits in phone booths. Check out her blog:
The image below is the artwork I created for Sally’s business cards. Sure it’s a little dark but so are some of the factories children have to work in.
How did Clark Kent afford that many suits? He was just a reporter who rarely went to work.
