Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship in Latest Action Comic

What are your thoughts about this?

He’s just so sick of being pigeon-holed as an instrument of U.S. policy. And “truth, justice, and the American way“ are ”not enough anymore.” That’s why Superman, in the latest Action Comic, has announced he is “renouncing” his U.S. citizenship.

  • I don't know much about the comic book mkt since I quit reading them at about age 12. Think about it though, If you want to change how a generation thinks about something, you don't start with adults. Adults, even a lot of 20 yr olds, have pretty set ideas that are not easily changed. If you really want to change how a generation thinks about something, you start with the kids. Present the idea harmlessly here and there in things they read, ie: comic books, etc, and things they watch, like cartoons & other shows aimed at young kids. The idea will eventually take root as it's presented more & more over time. If the idea is also then presented in things they learn at school, it can become a way of thinking for them. NOT saying there is a political basis or plot in the Superman thing to get people to think of themselves less as Americans (as a nationality) & more as say, North Americans, Just that it's (cont)

  • Pinkdragon.. I dont read comics either. My DH called me & told me to look this up, he was a comic fan growing up..
    I just thought it was pretty interesting & even though i dont know much about it, it just seems a bit messed up & like their is a political agenda behind it that im not too happy with.
