In today's society, racism and bigotry are just as strong and dangerous as it was back then, which is why we need stories that deal with this menace that's both hidden in plain sight and out and about simultaneously, based on the 1940's Superman radio serial that knocked the actual Klu Klux Klan down a peg or ten, "Clan of the Fiery Cross", Superman Smashes The Klan tells a story from two people, Superman who tries to ignore his past but must learn who he is eventually to become the more recognizable hero who has many powers, and Roberta Lee, a young Chinese American girl who moved from Chinatown to Metropolis because of her dad's new job and has to struggle with not only fitting in within her new environment, but also deal with the dangers hidden within the city in the form of the Klan of the Fiery Kross, written by Gene Luen Yang (creator of such works like American Born Chinese and Boxers & Saints) with art by Gurihiru (who worked with Yang on a series of graphic novels set after the acclaimed animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender") this story is for many people which may be very unsubtle, but it's still very clever and important in today's society
