The Patron Saint of Superheroes

Enlisted by a team of honor students for a seminar on superheroes, a mild-mannered professor discovers his inner obsession. Assuming the powers of a novelist, teacher, playwright, and scholar, Professor Chris Gavaler embarks on a mission to unlock the secrets of the multiverse.

Life in Trump’s alternate reality provided its usual opportunities for political memes these past two weeks. The first below is a reference to Clinton’s final vote count, 2.9 million more than Trump, and of course the Republican insult of calling liberals “snowflakes.” Mussolini made a couple of encore appearances, flanked again by the ironies of Trump’s anti-establishment rhetoric and even a few non-fascist GOP voices. There are my own attempts at inspirational call-to-arms, and of course our President is always good for at least one stunningly hypocritical tweet. Oh, and he said “a bad high school student would understand” his Muslim ban was right. That I thought everyone on Facebook would instantly recognize the references suggests maybe I’m spending a little too much time in the deep end?

And here are two I can’t take credit for. The 50 Ways Rockbridge logo was designed by another member, Katie Knudson, and I inserted it between two photos I took during our last meeting (over 125 attended, up from 25 the month before). It’s the banner on our Facebook page now:

And the “Missing” flyer is out of Indivisible Harrisonburg. We share Representative Bob Goodlatte, so I just inserted our Rockbridge address as instructed:
