Skip to comments.PICKET: Take your global citizenship and shove it, Superman

Look - up in the sky. Its a bird. Its a plane. Its Superman renouncing his American citizenship. In a move that can only be described as a punch in the face to fans of a more-than-70-year-old American cultural icon, DC Comics will have the famous Kryptonian renounce his U.S. citizenship before the United Nations in Action Comics No. 900.
In the story, Superman says to an American official, I intend to speak before the United Nations tomorrow and inform them that I am renouncing my U.S. citizenship. The Man of Steel then complains, Im tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy truth, justice and the American way - its not enough anymore.
Superman comes to this revelation after he appears in Iran to offer nonviolent help for the countrys dissidents. As a result of his actions, the Iranian dictatorship accuses the United States of committing an act of war.

It’s a freakin comic book character. They want to sell copy. Looks like they will.
I’m not a comic book geek but I am pretty sure Superman was never an American citizen. Clark Kent yes, Superman no. Am I wrong?
So superman becomes a traitor. Did obama put them up to it or did DC comics go totally leftist?
There are about a million ways they could “undo” this, sooner, or later. Nothing is forever in comic-book land.
Apperently all nations, through the UN, gave Supes honourary citizenship in the 70’s. As far as Clark Kent goes, it seems kinda hypocritical, I mean last time I checked Superman’s close friends called him “Clark”.
Not natural born anyway, more of an illegal alien.
Only a mater of time they have him kneeling to Mecca 5 times a day.
Sounds like Obama is a likely customer. Except superman is still white.
Superman’s been a fake ever since George Reeves took his own life. Nothing to “renounce” DC. He died an American citizen, so stuff it.
Is it even possible to renounce and “honorary citizenship?”
Superman is 70, he’s senile. And an illegal alien. Who needs another illegal in the US. He doesn’t even do yard work....
Superman wouldn't last more than a few minutes, most of them crying and begging for mercy from "Kid Miracleman".
Superman is 70, he’s senile. And an illegal alien. Who needs another illegal in the US. He doesn’t even do yard work....flies without a pilots license. Don’t know how an illegal alien can become a citizen...must have lied to take the test.. Throw his butt in jail. Keep him away from telephone booths.
So wait, as upset as I am about Superman renouncing his citizenship... I’m more upset that he wants to HELP THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT DEAL WITH THEIR “DISSIDENTS?” REALLY?? “Dissidents” are those fighting to break out of their Islamic Dictatorship!
So now “Superman” has become the latest propaganda tool from the Obama Politburo.
Born on the planet Krypton. Unless he became a naturalized citizen, he (Superman and his alias Clark Kent) is not a US citizen.
