:D :D

Considering the conversation we have been having about this, I wonder if the point of this move in the comics is to explore the reactions people will have to this in the DC Universe America and other nations. That could be interesting.

Also, I seriously doubt that even renouncing his citizenship would really effect much how the rest of the world see Superman and his actions. For better or for worse, Superman has always been synonymous with the USA for sixty years (or however long it's been in comics continuity time). I think that foreign nations would still equate Superman's actions with American national interest. Unless he changes his costume significantly or something.

Grrr. Clark needs to change his name to Waffleman, cause he's changed course again. (j/k Don't really care one way or another.)

Anyway, here's the final page from the most recent issue of Superman: (Spoilered 'cause it's ginormous.)

So in Action, doesn't like the US. In Superman he does. Nice to see that tight editorial control there DC.

Besides, over in Flashpoint, Wonder Woman seems to have killed and/or castrated every guy in the UK.

Yay! Comics are fun!
