POTD: Was Superman a Commie?Was Superman a Commie? Budapest, Hungary 2013

This sculpture in Budapest, a leftover from the Russian occupation of Hungary during the Cold War, is an example of socialist realism art. Socialist realism was a U.S.S.R. approved artistic style that celebrated an idealized vision of the life and industriousness of workers. The photo below is George Reeves, the original Clark Kent a.k.a. (sans glasses and suit and tie) as Superman. Is the resemblance just a coincident? We report, you decide. superman-clark-kent-george-reeves
