The Brazilian Superman Running For Office

There are many political parties who fight elections in Brazil. Sometimes, lesser-known candidates choose weird and wonderful aliases to stand out from their competition.

Take Ewerson Alves da Silva. He has closen the alias of Clark Crente, with "crente" meaning believer in Portugeuse and usually used as slang for a Protestant Christian. So not only does he identify himself with Superman but also advertises his religious stance in one. Look, he's even amended the Superman logo to incorporate a little cross.

Ewerson is  running for the position of "vereador", somewhat similar to the position of city councilman in USA politics or a city councilor in the UK. He's a surfing, skating, tattoo-loving priest, who used his similarity to a certain ficitional character to create the alias of Clark Crente and run for council.

No one tell him Superman was created by Jews, okay?
