I need to start off with, that I haven't read this story yet. I am making my bi-weekly run to my local shop tonight and will pick-up my copy then. But it looks to me that DC is getting a little caught off guard by their back-up story in Action Comics #900.
Many mainstream media outlets are picking up on Superman renouncing his US citizenship. So much for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. From what I have read so far, it seems DC feels this was not that big of a deal as Supes takes on some World issues. But some in the mainstream media are taking it that it's another blow to our American culture and some have gone as far as blaming the current White House administration for letting this happen. Too funny.
I know some of you aren't big fans of the Man of Steel, so I just wanted to share this with you in case you missed it.http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2011/...hip-00th-issue/http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/supe...IWE7y5EoU6xTZQIhttp://www.wired.com/underwire/2011/04/action-comics-900/
I read the explanation earlier in the week and don't have a problem with it. Now If they took the brining flag on the cover route with supes hitting it with his vision maybe I'd get mad
Clark Kent should be a US Citizen . . . Superman should not be. The fact that people still think his tagline should be "The American Way" anytime after 1980 kind of worries me a bit. I agree with Scott Thill
There was already a hero for our country, and it was done on a TV show called GREATEST AMERICAN HERO.
I, for one, would love to see Superman burning the U.S. flag with his heat vision. I would also love for Captain America to say "I stand for life, liberty, and justice... oh, and I'm moving to Antarctica and taking off this dorky costume... but I'll need a new one because it's cold there, I hear."
To me its just more proof that DC doesn't know what to do with their Trinity characters right now.
I don't mind if Supes renounces his citizenry. He's an illegal alien, and doesn't this country look down on those folks anyways?
