"You may think it's not your problem..." - Comic Books on AIDs and Homosexuality

I don't know about you, but my favorite superheroes don't just serve the community with fists and super powers. NOPE. It is also a well-known fact that many superheroes can also protect and serve the country through the power of WORDS. In fact, I would be an extreme Asian supremacist without the work of our greatest superheroes. Over this week, I will post some friendly public announcements by my favorite superheroes.

Ah, Jon Stewart, the BLACK Green Lantern, is spreading the word regarding homosexuality and AIDs. Notice the lack of super powers (except for the flight and glowing ring). But wait....'s the exact same ad, but with Hal Jordan. * gasp * He's a WHITE Green Lantern and basically saying the EXACT same thing. Hell, all the background characters are the same. It is fascinating to see DC and the public service organizations use these two characters interchangeably to tell the same messages. Intriguing, indeed. Notice, that Jon Stewart (the Black one) has a darker background for the bottom panel.
