Superman Renounces US Citizenship

In the latest issue of Action Comics, #900, Superman decides that the world is now too small of a place for him to have American citizenship, so he renounces it. The proximate cause of this madness was an accusation from the Iranian government that he was acting as an agent of the US, when attending a protest in Tehran as a sign of solidarity to the Iranian people. Said Superman, “truth, justice and the American way’  it’s not enough anymore”. As for the ultimate cause, perhaps he read that article on the end of American hegemony, and decided not to stay with the sinking ship. In any case, after 73 years and 900 comic book issues, Superman is no longer American.

    I love how the Breaking News in Toronto was how Superman was renouncing U.S. citizenship. This made my day (I knew about Superman already)
