Superman, the character long associated with 'Truth, Justice, and the American Way, is renouncing his U.S. citizenship in the latest issue of Action Comics.
Writer David S. Goyer, in issue #900 out now, has Superman making his announcement in New York, according to Comics Alliance.
Which is why I indend to speak before the United Nations tomorrow and inform them that I am renouncing my U.S. Citizenship, Superman says.
What? says what appears to be a security agent nearby.
I'm tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy, Superman says. 'Truth, Justice and the American Way,' - It's not enough anymore.
Ahead of the scene Superman appears in Tehran to non-violently support protesters demonstrating against the Iranian regime. However the government views Superman's actions as the will of the U.S. president, and an act of war.
Superman consults with the President and continues to work from a more global than national perspective, according to the report.
Superman goes on to say that he believes he has been thinking too small and that the world is too connected to identify through a national identity as own.
Superman, according to the comic book lore, was born on the planet Krypton and arrived in the U.S. as a child on an alien spacecraft.
