(Freep this poll) What do you think about Superman's decision to renounce his US citizenship
Comic Book Resources ^ | May 4, 2011

Posted on 05/04/2011 7:33:26 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

Choices are:

Go for it - Superman belongs to the world!

Depends - is Clark remaining a US citizen?

Could be interesting if handled smartly.

No. It's a bad, unfortunately timed idea.

Right now, the anti-America option is winning. Let's tell Superman's editors it's a bad idea!

My reply is to go to no more DC movies or to buy any comic books for the kiddies.

Let Moscow feed DC magazine for all I care.

What are the taxes on superheroes and their exposure to BATF harassment? It might be the smart move.

Comic books should renounce their importance in American culture.

A “Red” cape. A big S on his chest for Socialism. I always suspected he was a Commie.

He is a comic book drawing. He can’t renounce anything.

This reminds me; one of the editors at Marvel said that they keep getting angry letters from people complaining about Superman. Apparently there are many who don’t realize who the various characters belong to.

Excellent choice. I hadn't thought about their movies, just that I don't buy any comics, but I like it and will follow your lead. Superman, Batman, and the other DC comic movies are on my permanent boycott list, along with Chrysler and GM. Anti-American propaganda must have a price.

If they want to have a global audience then it is brilliant. From a capitalistic approach this is a way to gain a world wide audience. I suppose for those comic book fans it might be a shame for them. I just don’t know if it really matters in the big scheme of life.

If & when this happens, it will break my son’s heart. He has Down Syndrome & superman was his first super hero. When it happens I am going to rid our home of everything of this.
What a shame too.

He never was a citizen. Obviously, he is an undocumented illegal alien.

This is a publicity stunt for a failing brand.

Superman, being from Kryptonite, was never a citizen to begin with.

Deport him.

I gave up comics when I was about 8. And from what I see getting posted, there aren’t any comics I would buy for a kid now. They are all liberal political propaganda sheets.

But it has been about 45 years since I’ve read one, so what do I know?

And even 45 years ago, I thought there was something very wrong about Superman...

Superman is an illegal immigrant, and with a name like “Kal-el”, he’s probably a Muslim.

Bottom line...

Who cares?

Jewish!

My take is this...

Being an American means never having to say you are sorry for publicly disagreeing with the current US government.

He took a stance that was more American than the American government - support of demonstrations in Iran against the tyranny there.

He should have explained that being an American - his opinions were his own - and would continue to be - because he IS an American and is FREE to say and do what he wants without fear of official punishment.

The IRS can still get him for taxes even if he renounces citizenship.

Lois Lane still his beard?

Maybe he's trying to escape takeoff and landing taxes. It's bound to have become pretty expensive.

Also I didn't know the illegal alien could fly. Back when I was reading the first issues of the Superman comics, he could only leap tall buildings in a single bound.

And he was faster than a speeding locomotive. Or was that some other superhero?
