Superman Renounces His U.S. Citizenship

superman-citizenship.jpg

In what can only be viewed as a blatant act of terrorism, Superman is renouncing his U.S. citizenship, citing "America's obesity problem he's tired of being construed as an instrument of US policy." You know what? Fine -- but you better change your color scheme BECAUSE THESE COLORS DON'T RUN, CLARK...
...
...
...KENT. CLARK KENT -- THAT'S HIS REAL NAME!

"Superman is a visitor from a distant planet who has long embraced American values. As a character and an icon, he embodies the best of the American Way," DC's co-publishers, Jim Lee and Dan DiDio said in a statement to FOX411.com. "In a short story in ACTION COMICS 900, Superman announces his intention to put a global focus on his never ending battle, but he remains, as always, committed to his adopted home and his roots as a Kansas farm boy from Smallville."


The landmark issue is certainly sparking controversy.

"Besides being riddled with a blatant lack of patriotism, and respect for our country, Superman's current creators are belittling the United States as a whole. By denouncing his citizenship, Superman becomes an eerie metaphor for the current economic and power status the country holds worldwide," Hollywood publicist and GOP activist Angie Meyer told FOX411's Pop Tarts column.

First of all, WTF is a Pop Tarts column and can I eat it cold? Secondly, holy shit people are arguing over comic book characters. You'll have to excuse me if I don't get involved, it's just that I've got other things to worry about. Namely, an erection lasting longer than four hours. I know the commercial says call your doctor, but what that's just a ploy to kidnap me for biological experiments?! "Who knows -- maybe you'll wind up with a superpower..."

...Hello, Dr. Shirling?! I've had a boner for 48-hours straight and I want to read minds!
