A New Member Of Congress To Be Sworn In On Original Superman Comic

Robert Garcia is being sworn into the U.S. Congress, and he chose the Constitution as his foundational text, alongside three items that have personal meaning to him - a photo of his late parents, his citizenship certificate, and an original Superman #1 comic from the Library of Congress.

As an immigrant from Peru, Garcia explains that he learned to read and write through comics and a kid.

I grew up mostly reading Superman comics, you know, truth and justice, an immigrant that was different, was raised by good people that welcomed them and always someone that if you look at Superman values, and caucus values, it's about justice, it's about honesty, it's doing the right thing, standing up for people that need support.

And he never stopped! Just check out how excited he was to have access to the Library of Congress in the first place...
