Well, this is a low blow. Now the PC crowd has pushed the Man of Steel into the realm of an international entity. Did anyone really consider Superman a citizen of any country. Foolishness has reached new heights.

"...Superman announces that he is going to give up his U.S. citizenship. Despite very literally being an alien immigrant, Superman has long been seen as a patriotic symbol of "truth, justice, and the American way," from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume. What it means to stand for the "American way" is an increasingly complicated thing, however, both in the real world and in superhero comics, whose storylines have increasingly seemed to mirror current events and deal with moral and political complexities rather than simple black and white morality.

The key scene takes place in "The Incident," a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults with the President's national security advisor, who is incensed that Superman appeared in Tehran to non-violently support the protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime, no doubt an analogue for the recent real-life protests in the Middle East. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war

I'll worry when Scooby Doo and Shaggy renounce their citizenship. They way those two eat, they will likely become Italians.

Politics has permeated every aspect of our lives and it sucks. I've reached the point that if I find a political point being made in my entertainment or and ideological message, I stop reading or stop watching whatever it is.

Everytime I see a Celebrity spewing hate and politics now days, it makes me want to vomit. Not their fault though as we are becoming a Groupie Society. Hero's are now Actors pretending to be people they are not, or Authors putting their radical views in fiction works. Their Groupies are most easily controled people there are. Simply have a celebrity say something and it's the gospel truth. The dumbing down of America is working and we don't discuss it here enough.
