Representative to be Sworn In on Superman #1

The Constitution, The Bible, and The Koran are some of the holy items members of the U. S. Congress put their hands on to be sworn into office. And now the 1939 comic book Superman #1.

From the Hannah Murdoch of The Deseret News report:

When Robert Garcia, a Democratic representative-elect of California, takes his oath of office, he will be sworn in on something unusual — an original, first-edition Superman comic.

Sara Guerrero, a spokesperson for Garcia, stated, per the New York Post, “Congressman Garcia learned to read and write in English by reading Superman comics so it’s especially exciting he was able to borrow this rare copy from the kind folks at the Library of Congress.”

Superman first appeared in the 1938 comic book Action Comics #1,

a year later the hero’s popularity commanded an eponymous publication.

  1. I think every congress member / senator / judge / president… should be sworn in with a copy of the Constitution.

    They should also be quizzed on that constitution before they can be elected or seated.
