    Default Russia’s Vladimir Putin is his own superhero universe

    See link with pics. No kidding! You would expect that there would be pictures of him battling Obama as the Forces as Evil... except that everyone knows Obama won't fight anyone except America.

    Russia’s Vladimir Putin is his own superhero universe, apparently

    The next time Marvel and DC Comics want to reboot their superhero universes, they may want to turn to Vladimir Putin for inspiration.

    The Russian president, famed for his public — and frequently shirtless — displays of virility, celebrated his 63rd birthday on Wednesday by playing hockey and accepting an award (for his contributions to hockey). Some of his supporters, meanwhile, marked the occasion with an art exhibition in Moscow titled … wait for it … “Putin Universe.”


    A series of paintings depicted Putin in a range of heroic guises, from Batman, Thor and the Incredible Hulk to Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood and Neo. There were even Putin-esque versions of Muhammad Ali, Gandhi and Buddha.

    “Vladimir Putin’s character is the embodiment of heroism, fairness, slyness, intellect, courage and charm,”organizers said in a statement, published by Agence France-Presse. In short, it seems, Putin is Superman. Who doesn’t seem to have made an appearance in the exhibit …

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    Too funny. Lately, his crush/obsession has been Trump. Maybe he is coming out of the closet

    Poorly-educated people such as yourselves are fuzzy thinkers who are easily confused. Words such as "weak" and "strong" do not inherently carry moral valuations to them and are not even inherently judgmental, but are simply descriptive. Obama in his foreign policy is weak; he sees the world as he would like it to be. Putin in his foreign policy is strong; he sees the world as it is. Putin is a good leader for his nation; Obama is a poor one for his. Or perhaps Putin wants the best for his nation, and Obama does not for his. Likely, it is all of the above.

    Look up the word "incontrovertible".
