View Full Version : Poop Another Liberal Triumph: Superman Renounces His American Citizenship

He’s just so sick of being pigeon-holed as an instrument of U.S. policy. And “truth, justice, and the American way“ are ”not enough anymore.” That’s why Superman, in the latest Action Comic, has announced he is “renouncing” his U.S. citizenship.

Although he’s traditionally seen as an American hero (remember, though, he is an alien), Superman is fed up with being connected to the USA. According to the Comics Alliance blog (and reported by BoingBoing), in Action Comics #900 Superman tells the president‘s national security adviser that he’s had enough of the Red, White, and Blue.

Comics Alliance explains the context:

The key scene takes place in “The Incident,” a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults with the President’s national security adviser, who is incensed that Superman appeared in Tehran to non-violently support the protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime, no doubt an analogue for the recent real-life protests in the Middle East. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war.

Wired.com offers some more startling details about the non-violent protest that got Superman in trouble:

Goyer’s installment, with tense art from Miguel Sepulveda, steals the spotlight in Action Comics No. 900. When Superman drops in on an Iranian protest to stand with demonstrators in an act of nonviolent civil disobedience, the U.S. government takes him to task for acting as an instrument of national policy. Superman responds by renouncing his American citizenship and proclaiming himself a citizen of the universe.

Comics Alliance author Laura Hudson goes on to explain that the man of steel is increasingly seeing the world from a different perspective (sound like any unions?) and he’s ready to go global:

And actually, since he wasn't born here, isn't superman technically an illegal alien?

I say we deport his ass back where he came from.

If we lose Batman it's over. Just over.

We can stand to lose Aqua Man and maybe even Robin but not Batman.

Don't worry. We could never lose Batman. And if we do, that's why he gave us the batsignal. So we could find him.

That sounds like an incredibly boring plot line. Really, Superman is attending protests and having political debate? Who would want to read that?
