DC to publish Occupy Wall Street comic books

If you thought the Occupy movement was a laughing matter … well, you may be onto something. DC Comics — a company whose name is a reminder that its earliest product was meant to put a smile to its customers’ lips — announced on Friday that it will be releasing two new series. Both focus on the plight of the 99 percent.

Wired reports that the two titles in the Occupy series, which will debut in May, feature superheroes. “The Green Team” carries the motto “Money can buy them happiness — and they want to share it with you.” The motto of “The Movement,” meanwhile, is “They were the super-powered disenfranchised — now they’re the voice of the people.”
