Justice League: Mortals

GIVEN that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (who is in town for the ASEAN-Canada Commemorative Summit) had graced the variant cover of Issue No. 5 of Marvel Comics “Civil War II: Choosing Sides” and that “Dyesebel” actors were actually invited by a Communist Prime Minister to the welcome dinner for Asean leaders, we might as well anchor this week’s scholium to the “Justice League” (Warner Bros. Pictures).

Ruler of 80% of the Earth (Seven Seas), Aquaman combats polluters who harm aquatic life. He should have been a delegate to the 23rd Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in Bonn, Germany, 13-17 November 2017. This Justice Leaguer should listen to Loren Legarda, Head of the Philippine Delegation, and Chair of the Senate Committees on Climate Change, Foreign Relations and Finance, and UN Global Champion for Resilience, who said that the Philippines, as one of the most vulnerable nations to extreme weather events, is committed “to climate justice—to make the developed and industrialized countries answer for contributing the most to global warming and climate change.”

The Super Buddies (Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, Fire, The Elongated Man, Captain Atom, Mary Marvel) are headquartered in a New York strip mall storefront. They could have helped the Greenpeace activists who “painted” reverse-graffiti (also called ‘clean graffiti’) in various spots around the Asean Summit venues to reiterate the global call for the right to a safe and stable climate, to resist tyranny and indifference, and to demand justice from governments: “Climate Change is Real,” “Stop Trumping the planet and the people.”

Animal Man, the happily married family man and part-time super hero who draws his energy from The Red (the “life web” connecting all fauna throughout the universe), champions vegetarianism. This member of Justice League Europe, with his expertise in the morphogenetic field, may be welcomed by La Via Campesina, the world’s largest peasant movement that had called on ASEAN leaders to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in the Rural Areas. “Considering the increasing concentration of the food systems in the world in the hands of a small number of transnational corporations,” Resist the agents of The Rot! [U.N. Human Rights Council, First session, 15–19 July 2013]

“Peasants have the right to food sovereignty, which comprises the right to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and the right to define their own food and agriculture systems.” [A/HRC/WG.15/1/2]

Black Canary and the Justice League of Amazons (all-female superheroes bonding to protect and defend mother earth and her children). Should they recruit the Philippines’ Karen Ibasco who won the title of Miss Earth 2017? With or without the JLA, this Filipina, as an avatar of environmentalism and aesthetics, can draw sustenance from the People’s Climate Summit 2017, 03-10 November 2017, Bonn, Germany where La Via Campesina averred that peasant agro-ecology can feed the world and cool the planet and that food sovereignty is the true solution to uphold peoples’ right to climate justice.

“Food sovereignty is the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems. It puts those who produce, distribute and consume food at the heart of food systems and policies rather than the demands of markets and corporations. It defends the interests and inclusion of the next generation. It offers a strategy to resist and dismantle the current corporate trade and food regime, and directions for food, farming, pastoral and fisheries systems determined by local producers.” [Declaration Of Nyéléni, 27 February 2007, Nyéléni Village, Sélingué, Mali]

Possessing “mecha-empathy” (ability to sense and control computers and machines), the Rocket Red Brigade (enhanced Russians wearing armored battle-suits) defends their Motherland (Soviet and post-USSR). Perhaps one of them can be deployed in Mindanao as an offshoot of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s statement at the Coconut Palace, 13 November 2017: “definitely, we are ready to expand our ties in all the areas and dimensions including politics...as well as cooperation and interaction on quite sensitive things and spheres such as fight against terrorism.” [https://pcoo.gov.ph/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/20171113-REMARKS-OF-PRESI...

Swamp Thing (aka Dr. Alec Holland) of Justice League Dark (also of White Lantern Corps and Parliament of Trees) defends “the Green” (the force that connects all plant life on Earth) and his power to accelerate the growth of any form of plant life is needed as Banana-geddon looms. Banana production, particularly in Southeast Asia, is hampered by fusarium wilt disease (caused by a soil-borne fungus) and the Sigatoka complex (Mycosphaerella fijiensis M. Moreley), according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, among others. Dr. Holland’s bio-restorative formula “that can make forests out of deserts” is a fictional additive to the work of the FAO and the World Banana Forum.

Cascade of the Global Guardians was born into a large family on Java and a long time activist against the local elite. “Hoping to make more money for her family, she took a dangerous job at a refinery on Borneo. The factory came in the crossfire between warring factions, and she was exposed to a radioactive isotope that kick-started her meta-gene.” [http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Sujatmi_Sunowaparti_(New_Earth)] This Indonesian super-heroine is a rarity in the genre and an inspiration to rekindle interest in the Bandung Conference (which predates the ASEAN) where the Indonesian President Sukarno told the delegates gathered for the opening (18 April 1955): “This is the first intercontinental conference of colored peoples in the history of mankind!”

“What can we do? We can do much! We can inject the voice of reason into world affairs. We can mobilize all the spiritual, all the moral, all the political strength of Asia and Africa on the side of peace...we can mobilize what I have called the Moral Violence of Nations in favor of peace.” [http://www.cvce.eu/obj/opening_address_given_by_sukarno_bandung_18_april...

Finally, there’s Funky Flash man, an entrepreneur in the DC Universe, who unsuccessfully attempts to cash in on the talents of Mister Miracle. For all his antics, Trump-Man was nice and correct when he gave Lee Yong-so (a surviving victim of Japan’s wartime military sexual slavery system) a hug inside the hall of the presidential office of Cueing Way Dee in Seoul on the occasion of President Moon Cave-in’s state banquet.

Meanwhile, the Justice League ought to over-watch Dr. Omen (wife of Flying Dragon General).
