The champion of the repressed

Hey, Grant Morrison, Sigmund Freud called. He says you mean "oppressed".

Rolling Stone: You're about to relaunch Action Comics, one of DC Comics' longest-running titles. Will your revamp of Superman be as major as John Byrne's back in 1986?

Grant Morrison: Yeah, possibly. Probably as much, although he changed things quite considerably. I'm not using the costumes, just jeans and t-shirt, a Bruce Springsteen Superman. The original champion of the repressed Superman, the socialism and stuff, I wanted a bit of that.

You know what? Stick with repressed. Your slip is showing.

Also: This word "meme". I don't think it memes what you think it memes.
