Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship
Hmm, didn't get to that part yet. But I've always considered "the American way" to be a universal thing. It's described as purely American but is made up of ideals that all ethical people share. It's like saying "doing the Christian thing." That doesn't mean that other religions don't agree with it.
I feel like Superman is for everybody. That's why I'm ok with a Brit playing him in the new movie.

it's about time, speaking as an irish fan i think it's about time he started thinking aabout the world at large and not just america after all he is the WORLD'S greatest champion not just america's, that being said i never liked the "american way" part of his oath but i understand what it means, that it's about an idea of equality and that anyone can make it in america not actually the country, like Captain America fighting against the registration act in civil war
This story is kinda big now. Most forums go like this. If your not from america its cool an how dare you say other wise. Usualy theirs attacks on america right after this..If your from america its mixed.If they did this for a boost they will probly. One issue boost but lose over all if this becomes canon.
Thinking about this i kinda belive its part of the fall back plan for Dc over all in two ways. We have U.N. Batman corp basicly.They tried a less patriotic Wonder Woman costume.An now the ideals supes was raised on isnt big enuff.Dc could well be trying to break global market this way.Tho thats actualy a fail.Pro america movies do well overseas. Anti ones not so much.
Other option is this is their back up plan to salt the fans of superman.Because of the lawsuit.
Before i could argue Dc does not deserve to have Captian Marvel in their stable.Now i kinda think they dont deserve any of their iconic characters.Worse yet i have read sevrial times the "writer" of this is doing the screen play for the new superman snyder film.
Politicaly tho is the most intresting aspect to me.Funny how the anti america crowd in other forums crow over this as a win.The left seem more pleased yet kinda ignore whoes watch this happend on.. as pointed out herehttp://dailycaller.com/2011/04/28/dc-comics-turns-superman-into-a-super-racist/ what choice will they have but to call super man a racist?
" @Marshal Victory: Mate I dont know what you are on about in half of that comment but Superman does not want his American citizenship because if he trys to help people in other country's with out being invited then that's illegal and could be seen as an act of aggression by the USA but if he has no nationality then he gets around that problem "exactly, it's not as if non-american are saying the ideas he was raised on are bull, but that he should start looking at the bigger picture and applying those ideals on a bigger scale.
@Marshal Victory: Pro american films do well on the box office but they are often ridiculed for the amout of propaganda they contain and are never taken seriously
@Kairan1979: if thats all you see the american way as then aprently the propaganda that pro america films RedK says are riddiculed didnt do thier job?Most of what hollyweird puts out is anti america so those are more true?Yet they dont make money.
My post was not aimed at you nore any in this thread .When i posted its before yours see the time stamp doesnt take into consideration how long i was trying to post with out spelling errors etc.When i started posting Primmaster64 post 5 above mine was last one up.
Tho some of what i observed in other sites forums seems to magicaly rear its head here.Belive what yall want its a free world etc.But supes didnt do things for american intrest. He was the boy scout .Did what was right becasue it was right.
sites its on now
forms their nsfw
good coverage with people in the industry.
their 1st coverage i belive
none comic book site coverage
http://dailycaller.com/2011/04/28/dc-comics-turns-superman-into-a-super-racist/ which i thought was funny.
druge report had two links back toNO JOKE: Superman to renounce U.S. citizenship...
'Tired of having actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy'...
Um one of the posters on another forum said he was granted citizenship by kennedy in one issue. Plus another had him as a citizen of the world any way by un decree.If it was silver age earth 1 2 prime earth etc duno.So basicly if true their just rehasing old stroy ground all their crisis at infinate dc fixed.
Another said it was close to the authority sory line?
Seems like DC is making a political statement through Superman.
Superman is Clark Kent. Clark Kent grew from being a baby to adulthood in the heartland of the U.S. of A.
There's no way he isn't or doesn't feel like a real American. It's part of who he is.
He'd never renounce his American citizenship, least of all to placate critics from foreign countries. He'd just keep doing what's right and let his actions speak for themselves.
" it works...he shouldn't have to care about borders...he should be a citizen of the earth "This. Who is to determine what he does? He deems himself "Protector of Earth", therefore he shouldn't be confined by simple borders in what he does everyday, saving people all around the world.
Fox news LOVES to take things out of proportion
First Wonder Woman's new costume apparently suggests she isn't a patriot (even though she isn't even american), then the mess that they did when Nightrunner was introduced (Muslim Batman? No way!) and now this....
Yeah people can be stupid
Maybe... JUST MAYBE... Superman is taking the bullet for the whole U.S. Say the the Chinese or whatever country the US owes money from said he should renounce his citizenship and in return, they'll give the US a major discount with their debts... Hehehe!
"You no American now see? You be no Amreican and be earth person see? We slash you owe us, understand?"
Ok. I've offended both Americans and Asians now. I should just stop.. :D
Heres the facebook thread alota the industry people were quoted in. An ya its not pretty.
Doubt dc will gain more than they lose.
