Guess Superman couldn't handle the possibility of fighting crime under the leadership of Donald Trump. LOLz.
In DC's Action Comics #900, Superman renounces his U.S. citizenship when he's "scolded by a member of the president's security staff for appearing at a protest in Iran, with the notion that Superman's actions reflect the positions of U.S. government as a whole."
Here's what Superman had to say about his unpatriotic decision:
"I'm tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy."
Here's what Hollywood publicist/GOP activist Angie Meyer had to say about Superman's super-controversial decision:
"Besides being riddled with a blatant lack of patriotism, and respect for our country, Superman's current creators are belittling the United States as a whole. By denouncing his citizenship, Superman becomes an eerie metaphor for the current economic and power status the country holds worldwide."
More from Wired blogger Scott Thill:
"Superman has always been bigger than the United States. In an age rife with immigration paranoia, it’s refreshing to see an alien refugee tell the United States that it’s as important to him as any other country on Earth — which, in turn, is as important to Superman as any other planet in the multiverse."
Hopefully this doesn't put too many people off to the character when Zack Snyder's film comes out. We're not so sure he could handle another bomb of Sucker Punch proportions…
Does Superman's newly unpatriotic attitude make you dislike him? Or does it make you like him more? Or are you indifferent?
