Superman to renounce U.S. citizenship before the U.N.?

Apr 29th, 2011 | Category: Latest News | 90 comments



Since the 1930′s, DC comics were oozing with American patriotism in the Cold War era, where it was vital to rally young minds to the American cause. Well, the times have changed and the elite’s agenda too. Today, it is about the elimination of national boundaries and a world government. It is about a New World Order.

Despite being an alien, Superman has long been seen as a symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way”. But in the latest issue of Action Comics which hit newsstands on April 27, 2011, said he intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship in a speech before the United Nations. The symbolic implications of this gesture truly define at the direction where the “Agenda” is heading.

Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship in ‘Action Comics’ #900

After recently undertaking a journey to walk — not fly — across the United States in the “Grounded” storyline and reconnect with the country and everyday Americans, Superman appears to be taking another step that could have major implications for his national identity: in Action Comics #900…

…Superman announces that he is going to give up his U.S. citizenship. Despite very literally being an alien immigrant, Superman has long been seen as a patriotic symbol of “truth, justice, and the American way,” from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume. What it means to stand for the “American way” is an increasingly complicated thing, however, 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.

The key scene takes place in “The Incident,” a short story in Action Comics #900 written by David S. Goyer with art by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman consults 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. However, since Superman is viewed as an American icon in the DC Universe as well as our own, the Iranian government has construed his actions as the will of the American President, and indeed, an act of war.

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 — and to continue working as a superhero from a more global than national perspective. From a “realistic” standpoint it makes sense; it would indeed be impossible for a nigh-omnipotent being ideologically aligned with America to intercede against injustice beyond American borders without creating enormous political fallout for the U.S. government. While this wouldn’t be this first time a profoundly American comic book icon disassociated himself from his national identity — remember when Captain America became Nomad? — this could be a very significant turning point for Superman if its implications carry over into other storylines. Indeed, simply saying that “truth, justice and the American way [is] not enough anymore” is a pretty startling statement from the one man who has always represented those values the most. It doesn’t seem that he’s abandoning those values, however, only trying to implement them on a larger scale and divorce himself from the political complexities of nationalism. Superman also says that he believes he has been thinking “too small,” that the world is “too connected” for him to limit himself with a purely national identity. As an alien born on another planet, after all, he “can’t help but see the bigger picture.” Do you think the shift to a more global role makes sense for Superman? If he really is going to renounce his U.S. citizenship in order to function as a more international figure, how do you think it will affect the character?

        I was wondering if any VC readers would comment on this tonight. I have so many takes on this my head is spinning…..can't wait to see what discussions arise…..I'm still processing, spent the last two hours crying – cause I was reading between the lines of Obamanations speech. I'm sure that will enrage many but……

        Happy May Day Everyone!!!!

        I find it very hard to believe.. Especially with all those incidents with qabbalistic numerologies (the Chile mining ordeal etc.), it's been 10 years since Osama became 'the enemy'.

        And his body being buried at sea? … like the US would give that much respect to its "worst enemy".

      • LVB says:

        Sorry to be the one to tell you, but they are already there, my friend.

        Take a closer look. :)

    • VCNewbie says:

      Actually, there is a comic series called The Illumintati, and it's a group of "very smart heroes" trying to solve biggest issues of the worls (poverty and stuff like that), that's what i knew about it, some of those Illuminati are Iron-Man, and Charles Xavier (X-men). I don't know too much about comics, and i heard about it one day and read a bit… Propaganda everywhere, right?

      • right on says:

        i am familiar with that series as well.. here is a link on it

        http://marvel.com/universe/Illuminati

        marvel is owned by Disney, and as much as I love comics and their movies, we all know what Disney is capable of, sad to say I just look at it as a guilty worldly pleasure, we all should be spending more times in our Bibles indeed.

        Isaiah 55:11

        11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:

        It will not return to me empty,

        but will accomplish what I desire

        and achieve the purpose for which I sent it

      • belldandy47 says:

        Marvel was only just recently bought out by Disney. How do you explain the symbolism that has been in their comics for decades now?

      • pixie says:

        eemm…the fact that nothing is new under the sun?

      • Ruanl123 says:

        So is there's Illumintati symbols in the X-Men comics, the movies and the animated TV-Series?

        As I child I was a huge fan of X-men (not really any other comics though) and followed the overal story-line over the years. Surely the story-line is harmless? (as harmless has a comic book can be to young kids I guess)

        I used to collect comic books, action figurines etc and had the animated series on VCR (",) and watched it many many times over

        Its not like it turned me into some Illumintati follower or some sh1t like that???

    • Dev says:

      I think this time it isn't about the illuminati, but rather the fame of dr manhattan and his link to superman.

      If you read All-star superman, they talk about that as well, about how everything is connected, but read it with an open mind. I follow this website, and do believe there is something in the works. But superman's story has been like this for a long time.

      Well this is my opinion, i think this time its not to do with illuminati.

      Read avengers the illuminati, lol

    • HOPE says:

      Look, the most Important is that:

      Superman always wins !!! so let's stay positive and we will conquer :*)

    • tiarnan says:

      They've always been part of the comic world – since day one. All media is run by them.

      Superman was written by two occultists Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and is actually the story of Lucifer:

      Falls to Earth like lightning;

      Has amazing technology (the holograms and crystals etc);

      Has amazing powers;

      The S on his crest is shaped like a serpent (the serpent in the Garden of Eden was satan) ;

      His father was Jor-EL (El is the Hebrew name for God)

      His nemesis is Lex Luther (Lex is Latin for "law" – Martin Luther fought against the Babylonian rule of the Catholic Church in its aim to create a One World Govt/Religion)

      On Wikipedia it sates – "Superman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero appearing in publications by DC Comics, widely considered to be an American cultural icon"

      To take an American cultural icon and basically have him give his allegiance to a One World Government is like the Pied Piper leading all the children to their demise. It will have great sway over the impressionable, uneducated minds. But expect to see many many more icons (both real and fictional) follow suit.

      All media is run by these people, and is used to controls peoples thoughts and actions.

      • superninja says:

        I agree with this. The characters have occult origins, even if the writers were deliberate or not, they were used as a vehicle to promote the zeitgeist.

    • belldandy47 says:

      They've infiltrated comic books for quite some time now. It's just that VC hasn't taken the time to review any.

  2. DanielTiger says:

    Ehh… it sounds like even Superman is fed up with this perpetual regimes policing of the World.

    Ya…. ok… imma say I respect the decision.

    • Some guy says:

      You're not seeing the symbolism of it being Superman, who represents America as a supposedly benevolent SUPERPOWER choosing to decide to involve himself more with international issues than just his country. In this case it seems to me he's meant to represent the "muscle" of American might and he's pretty much always been used as a tool of propaganda to make America seem so caring and like it would never misuse its power because Superman himself never would. Thus people develop faith in America and buy into "American exceptionalism," but now he's saying "Now I'm going to expand my involvement in the problems that go on." It would appear to me then that the creators are supporting the "American military empire" that's got troops spread out all over the world (and is also not trusted by most of the world).

      I think internationalism, which is increasing diplomacy and interaction between countries, is a good idea (provided the leaders actually are representing the people and not being shady) but a NWO is not. For one, there's always been problems in some country somewhere, but people always had the option of fleeing to somewhere they felt safer. This is also reflected in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which says a person has a right to change their nationality or seek asylum. If there are no different nations and governments then we would lose these rights. Also of course is the issue of dictators. There've always been dictators in this part of the world or that, but if the whole world is ruled by one guy and he's a dictator…

      • DanielTiger says:

        ok… but superman said hes FED UP WITH HIS NAME BEING … ahh shit, let me loOk at the quote… "[HES] TIRED of having [his] actions construed as INSTRUMENTS OF US POLICY." Superman is a hands-on; a physical guy. He gets shit done. Some super villians wont stop unless you crush their skull. There is no diplomacy.

        Its also fiction.

        the US policy seems to be to find a weak nation, invade them and let individuals kill eachother on both sides. Also: predator drone strike and blow shit up. It gets nothing done. And these nations are not run by super villians. And again, there seems to be no diplomacy.

        Its also reality.

        Superman is seperating himself from a nation that acts "like" him, whilst claiming similar reasons for the actions: "Truth, Justice and the American Way." If American Law Makers and Military personel said, "HEY! We are just doing what Vigilant Citizen does" and then twist it and turn it into something sinister, VC would renounce them toO.

    • tiarnan says:

      You support the New World Order?

  3. felix says:

    America's image tarnished by its foreign policies(which are not working )

    Economy is sinking

    American Dream is dead

    The government should should be neutral and stop picking sides to for their interest (no wonder america is always under threat )

    They should try and learn from Switzerland , history always repeats itself

    • Ruanl123 says:

      Interesting point you make there, but I believe America has put itself in a difficult situation, by flexing too much muscle in the past. The (especially developing) world now expects America to get involved in foreign incidents. If America refuse they rest will get pissed off

  4. Jay'Rod says:

    Man it is sad but not surprising to me that the one thing many children look to as heros are being changed to some undercover vigilante. It only seems fitting seeing that Superman was not jus an alien but an illegal immigrant to not only America but the world. Far as I'm concerned Superman represent the Antichrist. Everything points to it…he fell from the sky in a ball of fire as a fallin' star. He is not of this earth & the name speaks of it itself “Super”man. He flies thru the sky pretending to give a damn just to gain the trust of the world & followers then betray the world leading us to hell. As I examin Superman & the comic heros I see nothing but demons & evil spirits.

    • Joe says:

      Could be seen as the savior/messiah, the only begotten son, sent to earth to solve the world's problems and lead them to peace. Depends on how you interpret things I guess. Lex Luthor as satanical only caring about having ultimate power and destroying anyone that gets in his way. Either way it was created by two Jewish farmboys a very long time ago. Could have been manipulated over time, but again it is all based on perception.

    • Ricky says:

      I have a lot of friends who like to get high on weed. I think you're currently on a -really- wild ride. The Illuminati may be real, but the Antichrist isn't. And, as far as I'm concerned, their Satanic rituals are just as pointless as one of the California, Liberal, New Agers' rituals.

  5. roYAL watcher says:

    HEY VIGILANT! you need to do an article about the ritualistic royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton!

    ok here are some peculiar info:

    In the calendar of saints April 29 is St. Catherine of Siena… a woman who died of "anorexia mirabilis" a holier version of anorexia nerviosa…

    Catherine Middleton looked very very thin on her wedding day!

    also very ironic because of the just recent easter…

    other thing Richard Chartres, a pastor said to Prince William a quote from Catherine of siena: "Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire"

    Catherine brother James Middleton said in his speech: 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1

    • s.m.h. says:

      one of ur reasons is because she looked thin at her wedding? i agree.. its absurb for a women to want or have drastically slimmed down for her wedding day! i mean, who does that??

    • Sarah Connor says:

      This guy says they are cousins! What? I wouldn't be surprised…..silly elite….always inter-breeding!

    • Vigilant Observer says:

      Yeah it would be very nice to have an indepth analysis of the recent royal wedding. something about the wedding felt so eerie, like they were trying to recreate the Charles/Diana service letter to letter…….freaky!!!

      What newly wed bride wants to follow the shadowy steps of her late mother in law even if she was a princess. Everything looked rehearsed, her smile, wave, nod to the the cameras, so akward givent this was the supposed best day of her life.

      She was beautiful though i must admit, but there was this hollow sadness to her smile.

  6. Sovay says:

    The agenda is larger than America. :l

  7. Luke says:

    Thanks for the post, Vigilant.

    I'm a sociology major, and have been very interested in the effects of media and over-socialization/brainwashing/conditioning etc… I found it interesting that Superman is now going global… I'm not sure what the implications may be but I do know that on an individual scale, it probably wont do much. Individuals reading the comic aren't going to become globalists all of a sudden, but on a mass scale, I think that this sort of thing is conditioning the "collective consciousness" and preparing it to accept more global solutions to our problems.

    I can't believe Superman is being used by the globalists.. It makes sense though, just look at what Vice President of the World Bank said about using the media:

    "Let’s just make sure that social change and transformation are going in the right direction…. The media must act as part of the education process that counters individualism.” Dr. Ismail Serageldin, Vice President of the World Bank.

    • Ruanl123 says:

      @Greymatter

      I know its a comic, but you do realise that when Superman ever saves the world from destruction by the hands of a super-villian, does actually mean the WHOLE world gets saved. Yes I know he doesnt save the WORLD in every appearance.

      Also, we all know Superman was created by Americans, the storyline and its caracters are American, and so on; but its not just Americans that adore him. The comic is (and has always been) adored across the globe. (Although personally I've never really caught on)

      If Superman is all pissed off at America (in a comic-story), it does not mean that America in real live is doomed

  8. wow says:

    This sucks, Superman denouncing his citizenship? I wonder if he lost his job?

  9. jaybird says:

    oh well, superman is a lame anyway. who needs him when you have Hulk, Wolverine, and Thor?

  10. how come can not view your forum any longer without being registered?

  11. Yes symbols matter but please remember this is a comic book. With the next change of editor and/or writer this plot line could be reversed or simply ignored. I have seen fr to many 'Major Changes Of Direction' that were forgotten and assigned to the memory hole for various reasons. There is a good chance this won't even be a memory before six months are out.

  13. Terri-Ann says:

    Once again amazing article VC !! Ive almost read them all ! And thanks to you and many others i have been able to paint a very big picture in my mind about our world. I am a spiritual person at heart, even though i love cars and clothes. :)

    Unlike before, when i watch cable everything is so obvious and disturbing.

    I recently watched the Heroes series, and it reminds me or real life in soo many ways.

    Even though the show is science-fiction it's story and the characters relates to real life in so many ways. They talk about a new world order, symboles of secret organizations, and much much more. It's pretty fascinating and has helped me in some ways to understanding what's going on in the real world. It's a battle between power and manipulation against heroes who could change the world if they just got together with the power of love. I compare the heroes to us humans who have brains capable of so much more than we are aware of.

    The average human use's about 10% of their brains. That's a very limited awareness if you ask me. They say that's all we are capable of reaching. What if that too, is a lie?

  14. Zuul says:

    I thought the real reason Superman was denouncing his USA citizenship was so he could avoid his Tax obligations- He moved all his money in an offshore bank account which he failed to report the IRS on his tax returns-

    Superman sought council from his attorney Dr. Gonzo and PR journalist Raoul Duke in Las Vegas on how to leave the country keeping a low profile. According to his atourney Dr. Gonzo:

    "Sounds like real trouble. You're going to need plenty of legal advice before this thing is over. As your attorney, I advise you to rent a very fast car with no top."

  15. greymatter says:

    I think it is clearly dictating the end of America, and the decision to join the world global government, or the U.N. which will take its place.

    Really, I hate to think this. But I feel the U.S. has less than 2 years left, and anything still left won't resemble the America we have come to know and love. Marvel has long had very esoteric ideas in them. In fact, most comic books where really tools of sex, violence and properganda, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least that they continue to promote the Illuminati agenda. They even predicted the 9/11 attacks in subliminal and blatant messages before they actually happened.

    Spider man makes the devil horns symbol everytime he shoots his web spray. It is all there in the comics.

  16. Berneys says:

    Just thinking that the American Way has lost its way….

    I didn't watch the royal wedding but the bridesmaids came to my attention on the net just now. There was a strange little girl among them, which looked quite ill. Apparently her bloodline is the Astors.

    • Me from Colombia says:

      The little girls on that wedding looked so sad. Williams cousins looked robotic and princess Letizia looked like a corpse.

  18. Pat says:

    You post the same sentence with different usernames. As to a single government and religion, absolute dictatorship doesn't constitute peace. Peace comes with tolerance and freedom of thinking. ;)

  19. superninja says:

    I have a strong affection for Supes. I'll always think of Superman as a Kansas farmboy with superpowers. I don't value the character for his Americanness, but for his gentleness and desire to selflessly serve.

    However, comic books have always been a storytelling avenue for the World System (NWO, whatever you want to call it) from day one. They the modern myths, the modern gods, Nephilim, etc.

    I grew up reading comics and only stopped in my late 20s because the stories became very similar to the evening news, CNN, or whatever real-world event was going on. Like reality tv or "ripped from the headlines", they eliminated the fantasy and creativity in favor of shock value and "relateable" characters. Much like the World System seeks to do. Homogenization.

  20. Yomael says:

    Superman is an alien seed idea planted in the mind of the human masses, a concept beautifully depicted in the film "Inception" with Leonardo Dicaprio.

    "The techniques of the Christian priesthood are the same mind control techniques used by the Illuminati. The invading seed thought becomes the possession of the possessed and destroys the originating thoughts of the individual to leave a mind controlled reactionary.

    The creation of the devil/Satan was a work requiring propaganda on a massive scale and the Bible with its New Testament would be the perfect vehicle to achieve this purpose. In creating the devil/Satan the Christian priesthood and Great White Brotherhood, including the Islamic and Judaic branch of the family, erected in the collective human subconscious an archetype able to channel and control the collective fears, doubts, and misfortunes of a retooled humanity. The priests of this Great White Brotherhood of Christian, Islamic and Judaic Illuminatism would then control the mind-set of the collective human subconscious and conscious mind wherewith they were empowered to create their own selfish and eternal heaven on earth."

    Superman, the idea, is the alien defender of the seed idea, of a retooled mind controlled humanity.

  21. Costanza says:

    I wonder how Jerry Seinfeld would handle this news? Every single show had a superman references in it somewhere in the background and or in the dialogue of the show. I wonder if superman is supposed to be a significant cue of some kind?

  22. Anonymouss says:

    This is somewhat surprising given Superman's patriotic 'boy-scout' image. I didn't expect such a blunt shift from one image to an (opposite) other. Yet, I remember a few hints at such a future. Please recall (the Batman 3 part ensemble where Bruce Wayne speaks for Gotham's power to survive and rebuild after the earthquake that destroyed it and defends its cause in a beautifull speech in front of the US government) – it a great story which is patriotic without being cheesy and cliche, but genuine and strong (plus you get a hint of how people who opose the system are taken out – a scene in the story will remind you of JFK assasination). All in all a must read along with .

    Also, for the commenters who mentioned the constant underlying Egyption Occult themes in everything the Elseworlds story will prove very intersting.

    Still, I think nothing speaks of NWO better than Justice League episode <A> – that is like a sad glimpse of what could be the future (you'll see refferences of everything: police state, big-brother surveillence and control, and just how robotic and soulless a reality like that would be). Watching that episode and understanding its very serious undertones despite the fictional aspect of it, is quite mind-boggling and ad. Justice's League's <A> and Pinky and the Brain's are truly realisticly foretelling and disturbing reality that will occur, unless we block out the manipulation that is being imposed on us.

    Sorry for the long post, but I believe the comics and episodes I mentioned above are truly worth checking out and analysing.

    Stay lucid everyone.

    • superninja says:

      I like how Justice League writers were honest in depicting that even people with the best intentions cannot avoid the corruption that comes with power. That is human nature. It's why we need God and his son Jesus Christ.

  23. Everyman says:

    I think it makes perfect sense, everyone deserves justice and justice isn't always the american way. Superman represents the fairness and you can't really be fair if you're the poster boy for one government, he needed to do it a long time ago the way i see it. I 100% support the move!

  24. Amazed says:

    Superman's story has many similarities to Jesus. Both "came" to earth, were raised by earthly parents and had superhuman abilities. Superman even died and was resurrected. He is portraid as the saviour of this world (messiah). These elements are blatant in the TV Series Smallville as well. With where the storyline is going I suspect that Clark must embrace his darkside and control it in order to fully fulfill his destiny. There are constant referrences to dualities; good vs. evil, light vs. darkness. Not to mention that he gets his powers from the sun! Superman is in essence the new age luciferian messiah desguised as a benevolent superheroe! "Hiding in plain sight" indeed.

    • Super R.I.C.O. says:

      Superman's creators were both Jewish so any similarities to Jesus Christ were never intended to be part of the characters mythos by his creators. Other writers and artist added those JC layers in much later.

      Superman's origin is more of a rip on the Moses's story not Lucifer's. Please do some research before you post nonsense. Also in regards to Superman getting his powers from the sun, please remember that Superman is a science fiction character not a religious one straight out of any holy book. So the sun gives Superman a pseudo-scientific reason behind his power. Even has human beings we need the sun to survive. It's weird the sun provides plenty for humanity and earth yet some of you think of it has Satan incarnate.

    This Superman comic dropped the same day Obama dropped his fake 3rd grade made Birth Certificate. The funniest part of it all is that on several occasions, over the last few years, Obama has been referred to as Superman. Not being a U.S. Citizen is just one more thing Superman and Obama have in common. Yay America.

  26. Vindicated says:

    I am the artist for a sci-fi psychedelic comic book that is being, and it's kind of a mind frak type comic, but in it, the villains that writer has, and the way the comic is set up, kind of reflects the Illuminati and their new world order. They protagonist is trying desperately to stop them, and make the world whole again. And as the artist, I feel like this should be made known. It isn't fair what they are doing (maybe we are wrong, but I doubt it), and they should be stopped. It is an independent comic (most likely gonna be published by oni press), but we can still address a situation like this, and make it heard in comic book form. And I believe they shouldn't be coming into our comic book territory! We'll just lash back, and people will stop reading.

  27. S says:

    Superman was created by a Canadian. Wouldn't that make him Canadian??

    Food for thought.

  28. He lies beneath says:

    Maybe Superman going Global is actually promoting "globalism"

  29. LVB says:

    But will Superman support the NWO (UN, NATO, EU) in bombing innocent children in Libya?

  30. superninja says:

    This will probably not last, by the way. This storyline (like most of the storylines in comics these days) is a shock-value tactic meant to create a short amount of interest to boost sales.

    Wonder Woman is already this kind of globalist superhero, and everyone moans about how boring she is every five minutes. Because it makes her bland. Superman's character is fixed in his Americana roots, his whole personality revolves around nostalgia for this. The character will continue to be unsuccessful the more they continue to contrive and avoid it.

    They are avoiding the very reason people are attached to the character to begin with. But this has been going on for years in comic books.

  31. Comic reader here. says:

    1. Where the hell are you guys getting a new world order/illuminati/yada yada with comic books?

    2. He is a worldwide superhero, or tries to be. He doesn't support what America has been doing lately. He's not swearing his allegiance to one country/organization, nor is he swearing allegiance with any other "world order". He is on his own, protecting good wherever he can, if he can.

    3. HELLO? HE'S A GODDAMN ALIEN.

    Clark Kent is his fake American identity, but he is a Kryptonian from OUTER SPACE.

    4. Seed in society? No, he escaped an exploding planet -_-

    5. Obama was born in Hawaii. End of discussion.

    1) If superman were real he would have done this ages ago. Why would you think that has a superhero in this modern age, would Superman want to be viewed as a puppet for the US Government. People around the world would not welcome his help and would be concerned that he would not have their best interest at heart.

    3) I love the VC site it's very informative, but I can't say the same for most of his fans/supporters. A lot of you seem to quick to jump the gun with everything some how being an Illuminati conspiracy. It seems like some of you, while highly intelligent, can't seem to think beyond your personal world view. Things to keep in mind are that comics haven't been selling well since the early 90's when an issue of Superman could sell a million copies a month easily. Nowadays the best selling books sells around 100,000 copies. So comics would not be much use to the Illuminati in terms of indoctrinating anyone. Also Superman from a corporate (Warner Brothers) point of view is a global property. With the upcoming film and movie studios relying more and more on the international box offices having Superman serve as US propaganda may alienate the international market which is bad for business.

      3) should be labeled 2) I took out my of my points to merge it with another.

        @ Super R.I.C.O. I think if you read my comment on line 14- You'll see what this Superman conspiracy is really about- From my point of view, I am the only one who gets it :-)

        Anyway, I totally get what your saying with "reading too much into things" that may or not be there. It's a form of intellectual tunnel vision- that everyone has at one time or another. But I like reading most of the posts, you get to see what other people are thinking and it sparks a discussion.

        In my humble opinion, I still think this whole Superman thing has something to do with the IRS and back taxes owed on money not reported from his off-shore bank accounts. Superman is just ducking this whole thing and it was the advice of his atourney and publicist to renounce his USA citizenship as a PR cover.

        I forgot to mention- this Superman Comic series is going to tie into the next "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" movie 2nd part of the trilogy to be released 2012. The 3rd part of the trilogy John depp has the difficult role of playing Capt. Jack Sparrow, Edward scissorhands, and Raoul Duke all in the same movie, it gets interesting how Superman gets involved with all of these characters!!! True Masterpeice Theatre

        I see your point! Superman escapes US felony charges on tax evasion by surrendering citizenship while promoting an international agenda much like the public relations of international corporations who have successfully gotten away with the crime of tax evasion.

        Which brings to mind – Wesley Snipes who starred in the Blade films is currently doing three years on a misdemeanor of willful failure to file income taxes. Snipe's, who didn't file on time although he paid his taxes late, is the first US citizen to be sentenced to three years on this type of misdemeanor offense.

        Ironic, last year in the same county where Snipes was tried, a man pled guilty to tax evasion on $54 million which is a felony and received only 6 month probation.

        And, although none dare call it a conspiracy, the Fed Inspector General can't explain the mystery of 9 trillion dollars missing from the Federal Reserve.

        Ok, I know that I'm suffering tunnel vision, and reading too much into things, but then again, are the Goldman Sachs executives recently charged with fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission, an attempt to quell the growing validity of the conspiracy community, not to mention Obama's passport sudden appearance, and my gosh!, didn't they just sacrifice, I mean kill Bin Laden after "the preparation of a sacrifice" rite and ritual following the May 1st Beltane Festival and Satanic Baptism, or am I reading too much into the Satanic calendar of yearly events.

        Thanks Zuul for opening my eyes – I’m going to research international tax codes and tax shelters because Superman’s announcement heralds the coming demise of the world’s nation-states which will revolutionize existing tax codes. Naw, I’m just reading too much into things, but then just maybe, stranger things have been known to happen, “and known dare call it a conspiracy”.

    O/T

    I am the only one BEYOND disturbed by the "killing" of bin Laden?? This stinks to high heaven to me..

  35. darjq says:

    The time is very appropriate for them to a announce the killing of Bin Laden. The illuminati wants to keep Obama in power and to boost his image they had to give him something 'HUGH'. What could be bigger that this. It will be played on all the major media channels and run for days to come so that it gets cemented in the minds of the gullible american people.

    How stupid do they think we are…talking about them burying the body in the sea……really!!!!!

  36. Wow. says:

    Actually, he's doing it because *SPOILER ALERT* he winds up partaking in a protest in the Middle East and because he's there, there's backlash against America, saying that America is moving against that country (I think it's Pakistan, funnily enough, though I could be wrong). Because of that, Superman gets fed up and renounces his citizenship.

    True story.

  37. KT says:

    This runs counter to Superman's character. You must remember that although he is an alien, as an infant he was raised in America by Americans. By the way, he loves those American's very much. And it was those Americans that had a lot to do with the shaping and forming of his character.

  38. Pffffft! I don't know why people are so freaked out. I mean Superman is the ultimate illegal alien. Hardly surprising at all.

    Now if Captain America renounces his US citizenship before the U.N. Or G.I Joe says he's quitting the army and going to Saudi Arabia "to find himself" I would start to get concerned.

    Superman is the main man, the man, he is sexy, hot and the world´s finest I will always follo him, no matters if he help to the NWO or the satanic illiminati

  41. charisse says:

    i've just noticed, that superman only did help those people in america. weird. besides all the propaganda, superman deciding to help all people really is a good thing, in my eyes. lol

    Did anyone see the series finally to smallville? it was filled with pyramids… when lois lane was on plane at the end and was talking the to some from the white house the lighting flashed behind him and a pyramid with an eye flash on the wall

  43. Gee says:

    The fact that They know that people are getting very suspicious. They can and would do anything, in every way that they can to control the people. Things arent always what they seem. Be careful.

    Don't be so quick to rule out a more unified world. Like a lot of you I've heard of the New World Order and read many, many articles, books and watched documentaries on the whole thing. I think a more unified world is good, but can people everywhere really celebrate, or at least tolerate, people's differing beliefs, religions, politics and ways of living? A lot of people can't even get along in their own countries, families or social groups. A unified world would be good but not one ruled by the few sitting above in a dictatorial One World Government. It's a tricky concept, but a good one if EVERYONE'S INTERESTS ARE ACCOMMODATED and everyone has equal rights.

    The main issue today is acceptance and tolerance of other's beliefs and different points of view, and if you can't embrace that in your own life, with the people in your own life then you can't do it on a global scale. Once people can accept and celebrate people's differences (and lets face it this should be a real basic concept that we as a people should finally get) then we can worry about the more insidious Elites who want a One World Government ruled by them for their own greedy needs. We have one thing they don't and will never have and that's NUMBERS. Boy, do we outnumber them or what! But without acceptance of each other and the petty scabbling of who is right or wrong, which religious beliefs are Godly or ungodly; if we can't get passed that then we'll never unite and will always be the slave to these Elites.

    Unification, allows individuals with differing beliefs to come together, uniformity seeks the eradication of the individual, and to turn them into the faceless minions and resource of the State. Very subtle differences that have huge implications.
