YAWN: Superman to renounce American citizenship. Big deal. Who says he’s a citizen anyway? Who’s seen his birth certificate? Ah, well, at least he’s clearly siding against the Iranian mullahs and with the pro-democracy protesters. That’s more than our President — also a comic-book figure — can say.
UPDATE: Jim Treacher emails: “I can’t believe they’re making Superman a racist! It would be one thing if he renounced his U.S. citizenship under The Evil George Bush. But he waits until a black man is in charge? Way to join the Kryptonian Klux Klan, Kal-El.”
