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

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?

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… Read more »

Gee

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.

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

charisse

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

Superman is the man

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

DEPORT HIS A-S!!!

Political Athiest

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.

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.

Wow.

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.

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!!!!!

O/T

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

It just feels like a set-up for something huge..even WW3 perhaps :/

Batman would never do such a thing…

Super R.I.C.O.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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”.

Comic reader here.

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 G-----N 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.

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.

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

He lies beneath

Maybe Superman going Global is actually promoting "globalism"

S

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

Food for thought.

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.

Whodat

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.

It's all in the bloodlines.
