In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.

Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.

In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.

Please help us.

"My daughter has been sick for over a year. She is too ill to attend school. I am a single mom, and I cannot pay for utility bills. Our electricity is going to be turned off on August 2, and other utilities will be shut off shortly afterwards. We NEED our electricity as she is going to need a nebulizer soon. I am buried in medical bills, and we may lose our home. Please, if anyone can help us in any way, I would be forever grateful. Thank you and God bless you."

Please, if all of you could take a second to donate here and maybe even give it a good signal boost, that would be absolutely amazing and I’m sure Kayla and her mom would be so grateful that you helped out!

Kayla is one of my best friends and I really want to be able to help her and her mom out, so it would seriously mean a whole lot if you would at least spread this around or donate to their fund. Thank you so much, you guys!!

And here’s a link to Kayla’s post, in case you want to spread that around as well!

Please help our friend !!!!!!! This is very very important! D:

So, a little story.

At the company where I’m doing my internship, I’ve taken to drawing superheroes every day on the whiteboard of my cubicle. My co-intern, who sits right across from me, thought it was a fun idea, but never seemed to particularly care about the characters themselves.

Until I drew Kamala Khan, the new Ms. Marvel. Suddenly she started asking me all about who she was, what her powers were, what her story was… I told her I’d bring in some comics about her so she could check it out. This photo is of her reading Ms. Marvel #4 (the only issue I had on me at the time), which she told me was the very first comic book she’d ever held in her hands before. And she really enjoyed it!

She asked me about other heroes, so I told her about Miles Morales/Spider-Man and she sounded really interested in him too. She explicitly told me, “I really like seeing a lot of more diverse, ethnic characters.”

In the weeks since, she’s asked me for more heroes and more comics. I’ve given her all the Ms. Marvel and Ultimate Spider-Man and Blue Beetle comics I could gather, and now she’s always asking me for more details on the characters I draw every morning. Sometimes I turn around and see her googling superheroes at her desk to read more about them.

Let me remind you: this is someone who had zero interest in superheroes, and zero desire to learn more about them—and now she is eagerly reading and seeking out new material. All because of characters like Kamala Khan and Miles Morales.

I’ve got about five weeks left of work here. Let’s see how many more comics I can get her interested in during that time!

Hurray!
