I remember going to a theater in my pre-teens to watch Christopher Reeves play Superman in 1978. Gawking at the image of Chris Reeves flying through the air on the silver screen and seeing this flick in one of those grand old movie theaters was nothing short of mesmerizing.
Fast forward a couple of decades later, now, it's Henry Cavill who's filling the red boots and blue 'suit' of Superman. Difference is, being a reformed anglophile, I have no interest in seeing any more europeans playing the part of superheros. (Coincidentally, the word 'hero' comes from an ancient Black deity named 'Heru'; this is where the Christian religion got the archetype for Jesus Christ. Heru was the son of Ausar...Jesus is the sun of God...look it up and check the similarity!) So, there's no chance I'm gonna' lay down any money to see this flick, hell, I'm not even gonna' rent it. But one thing I have noticed is this...Superman is looking a little different nowadays. I've noticed the darker 'threads' he's donning while he's saving the free world. Now, I wonder what's up with that? Let's look at this a little deeper...
odd design pattern or font? Especially it's first movie incarnation, circa 1978. If you look right, at the bottom half of the superman logo, you'll see what looks like a rounded 'head' at the bottom left of the letter 'S'. At the upper right-hand corner, you'll see what looks like a tail at the letter's end. Makes the 'S' kinda' look like a snake or some sort of serpent, don't it? That's 'cause it IS. Not only is the letter 'S' meant to evoke thoughts of a snake or serpent-like creature, but the 'spit curl' in Superman's hair (Chris Reeves circa 1978) is also suppose to represent a snake, or a serpent.
Welp, let's take a departure from Superman's mythological origins, and look into the origins of ancient Black people for the answer.
Let's start with the legend of the 'Nagas'. Who are they you ask? They were an ancient Black tribe who ruled asia, and one of the main deities in their spiritual sciences was a 'snake' or 'serpent God' (like the one pictured to the right called the 'Naga Kanya'). This is how the Japanese city of 'Naga-saki' got its name. The word 'Naga' actually means divine and 'saki' means snake, so this is literally the divine snake or serpent. Remember how Jim Morrison of the Doors would call himself the 'Lizard King'? That feeds into this too. Because, unbeknownst to most, Black men created Rock and Roll (Google Chuck Berry, Bo Diddly, Muddy Waters and Little Richard). Also, another part of my Black ancestors spiritual sciences was the concept of 'Kundalini'. Now one of the spiritual representations of Kundalini energy is a snake, this especially pertains to the energy's way of 'snaking' up ones spine, and through the 'Chakra' systems of the body.
The illustration below is an example of Kundalini's
energies making their way up the spinal column in a 'snake-like' manner. And...the chinese have actually dubbed 2013 as 'The year of the BLACK SNAKE'. Google it if ya' don't believe me.
The source of Superman's power is the ancient 'Black' snake, that's what's making him invulnerable. I can hear you guys huffin' and hawin' already, saying, "That's a crock!". Okay, then let's look at Superman's new blue 'suit'.
Notice from this blog post's header, that Superman's blue suit goes from being a sky or almost aqua blue, to it's latest 2013 incarnation, which is nearly a navy, or cobalt blue. I remember back in the day when a dark skinned brotha would come into a room and leave, a lot of Black folks would say he's so Black, he's 'blue'. Or they'd wax philosophic about 'blue-Black' skin. Now if you remember James Cameron's movie 'Avatar', the Na'vi (Navy Blue? Dark blue?) were also 'blue' beings. But what were their facial features like? They had broad, wide noses and braids. Hint, hint. The 'Na'vi' are suppose to be Black people. Just like this incarnation of Superman's darker suit is suppose to represent Black skin, and it's also telling the world another thing...
That the REAL SUPERMAN...IS THE BLACK MAN!
I can really hear the hisses and boos now! LOL!
Need some more proof? Okay, bet...since we're looking into ancient mythologies, whether they be Superman's or the Black man's, let's look into another ancient mythological Black man...let's take a gander at the legend of 'John Henry'.
Now, let's compare myths:
1. John Henry was a 'steel-driving' man...and Superman is the man of 'steel'.
2. John Henry beat the powerful locomotive-driven drill while pounding through miles of rock to bore a tunnel...Superman is more powerful than a locomotive.
3. Shaquile O'neal, the basketball superstar, was in a movie called 'Steel', and what was his character's REAL name? JOHN HENRY 'Irons'.
Besides this fact, another ancient Black deity of my ancestor's spiritual sciences is one named 'Ogun'. He's a netjer/god of war and weaponry. He is and was the original 'Black-smith' and 'IRON MAN' (another super-heru/hero reference). Coincidentally, his name is where we get the word 'gun' from. You see how this all comes back to Black people?
Also, the fact that Black men can create every other type of man, while none of them can create one of HIM, makes him/us far superior to any of the earth's other men. Why do you think white men smoke cigars, or Black phallus' (which they really represent) to feel and look powerful. They know that the Black phallus rules over all others, genetically.
Now with Superman's darker suit the message is clear... BLACK MAN, YOU ARE THE WORLD'S LIVING SUPERMAN. And the time to reclaim your rightful throne is NOW. And you don't have to take my word for it, Hollywood is letting you know who and what you are.
I love being a BLACK MAN!
