The Pride of Middle-East.
Too many “what if? ” has been asked and illustrated about Superman, but none of them imagined Superman landing on an eastern country. Well, USSR is an asian Empire but also a christian one (Superman, the Red Son).
This serie of posters try to describe what could have been the political and societal use of Superman in the Muslim world.
Let say that Kal-El was adopted by a couple of farmers in a muslim country, again in the late 30’s. Would the Muslims use him as an instrument of propaganda, like it was in America? Which kind of propaganda would it be? Would they name him Superman?
You can imagine his childhood and his carrier by yourself.
Berk Senturk has just wanted to introduce this character to you, using art of propaganda and illustration.
