Superman has started a stink by declaring he intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship in a move aimed at giving him more global authority. He makes the decision in “Action Comics” No. 900.
Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, who created the comicbook hero, must be spinning in their graves.
It has caused anger among readers who liken the Man of Steel’s declaration to go before the United Nations and “inform them I am renouncing my citizenship” to abandoning the ideals of “truth, justice and the American way.” DC Comics says the superhero isn’t abandoning the U.S. — he’s jus’ putting a global focus on his never-ending battle against evil.
And the way our elected officials are directing our national affairs — we’ll soon all fall under the auspices of the U.N. as well.
