Superman renounces his U.S. citizenship, thanks to America’s foreign policy!

Superman has renounced his American citizenship and he blames the Israeli influence on U.S. foreign policy as the prime reason for his action.

The Akh stopped reading comics graphic novels a while back, but now and again there’s a story that gets me intrigued. Tipped off by one my “stans” to the machinations of Action Comics issue 900, which sees Superman renounce his American citizenship.

Now I know what you’re thinking, what do comics….dammit….graphic novels have to do with anything?

Well for one, they shape public opinion, and when that is of a cultural icon that is as American as cinnamon & apple pie itself, then perhaps we need to understand that the popular groundswell of public opinion within America itself is turning against it’s pro Israeli influenced government.

So let me break it down for you, despite very literally being an alien immigrant (like the yanks love to call them) Superman has long been seen as an emblem of American patriotism, a symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way”.

The symbolic resonance has always been there, from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume.

However, what it means to stand for the “American way” is an increasingly complicated thing, 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.

I’ll let you read the issue for yourself, simply click to enlarge and read, commentary continues below;

Wow!

Right?

So what we had was Superman consulting 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.

The only bit of hokum there, is that it is Iran and not Egypt.

Superman replies that it was foolish to think that his actions would not reflect politically on the American government, and that he therefore plans to renounce his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day – because the American government do not want him to be on the side of the people, against the leaders installed to do America (read Israel) bidding.

It wasn’t that long ago that Batman had a new Muslim recruit to help him fight crime. Then again, you can always meet Captain Israel, ethnic cleanser, murderer, hero for the politically indoctrinated zionists.

The Akh has been saying it for years, and now even Superman himself agrees, it is America’s foreign policy, aided, abetted and influenced by Israel that is the cause for so much torturous woe across the world.
