The bad news: Hes supposed to be an immortal symbol of truth, justice, and the American way. Or at least he was before that line got written out of the script in order not to offend foreign audiences. The good news: Isnt he an illegal alien? Since when did we start admitting people from Krypton, anyway? Ah well. More work available now for American patriots like Batman and Spider-Man.
Im actually not sure what to make of this:
Goyers 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

But he could STILL be potus - 0bama has set the precedent.
When was he naturalized?...................
But, I thought he was/is President, Dana Milbank thinks so.
Kripton, is supermans home, I have never read a comic where he became a citizen.
Where’s the Birth Certificate?
He was adopted by a Kansas couple.
I believe that makes him an official citizen.
“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”
So if you reason that through, the State Department gets on Kal’s case and he tells them to take a hike. After decades of the most powerful villains in the universe, it took Hillary Clinton to run Superman off.
at the time of the first action comic with superman, immigration law was much different.
you are correct. The adoption establishes he is a citizen ....AND
at the time of his oragin it is not unusual for a child’s birth to not be recorded. If memory serves, in one version the kent’s just stayed inside during winter and in the spring there was the baby.
My screen name aside, I'm done with comics. Thanks DC, it's been a fun ride for the last 40 years...but this is the proverbial straw that's broken the camel's back.
Don't be silly. George and Martha Kent were both US Citizens, and they adopted him, making him their son and thus a US citizen as well.
It's rumored he played for Paul Brown during the fifties and early sixties but couldn't stand Art Modell and moved on. This is why the Brownies went from the winningest (by percentage) franchise in the NFL to the three legged dog operation they have been ever since.
Superman wears Chuck Norris PJs to bed at night.
Superman is Arab. Just ask Hamas, Homodinejad and Obongo.
I may have read it wrong, but I think Dana was talking about “SUPERFLY” not SUPERMAN.
