It looks like even Superman has become politically correct. In a new issue, the comic book hero from Smallville, Kentucky has renounced his American citizenship.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Truth, justice and the ... global way?
Superman has started a stir with a declaration in the new issue of "Action Comics" that he intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship because he's tired of his actions being construed as instruments of U.S. policy.
The Man of Steel, who emigrated to earth as a child from Krypton and was adopted by the Kents in Smallville, Kan., comes to the conclusion that he's better off serving the world at large after he's accused of causing an international incident by flying to Tehran amid a large protest.
Oh well. At least he didn't become a Canadian...
Tarzan wasn't a ladies' man
He'd just come along and scoop 'em up under his arm
Like that, quick as a cat in the jungle
But Clark Kent now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sittin' around in no
Junglescape, dumb as an ape doing nothing
Supermen never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see
Another man like him...
