It looks like DC is taking a stand against President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy (DACA). Tackling a controversial political issue, Superman decides to protect a group of undocumented immigrants from an attack by a white supremacist in a new issue of Action Comics this week.

Images of Action Comics #987 have made their way online, and in the photos DC fans get to see the man of Steel standing between a field of bullets as a group immigrant workers face a white man with an American flag bandana who tries his best to shoot them down.

“Stop this,” Superman commands sternly, deflecting the bullets with his chest. Revealing his reasons for shooting at the immigrant workers, the white supremacist starts claiming that “They ruined me! Stole from me!”

The Last Son of Kypton doesn’t respond too kindly to the white supremacist’s answer, telling the assailant that “the only person responsible for the blackness smothering your soul – is you!” as he destroys the man’s gun.

Check the images down below:

A timely comic, the new issue of Action Comics seems to respond to President Trump’s decision to abolish DACA, and while some DC fans might believe that Superman ought to be doing more non-political superhero work, it makes sense that the American superhero tackle current political issues.

Action Comics #987 hits shelves today, September 13.
