The Best Of The Backlash Against ACTION COMICS #900

     "I intend to speak before the United Nations tomorrow and inform them that I am renouncing my U.S. citizenship. I'm tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy."

     The Man of Steel has made quite a number of people angry in the latest issue of ACTION COMICS. Superman, an icon of "truth, justice, and the American way," intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship. You can imagine why this might cause a stir to certain people of a - ahem - certain political persuasion.

     Of course, Fox News has picked up on the story, and its legion of loyal complainers are having quite a field day with it. Here are some of the gems that I found in the article's comments section:

If the creators of superman really dont like our country...take your cape and tights and fly the h ell out of america.


Ship him back to Krypton...the lousy illegal alien.

It is reported that Wonder Woman is defecting as well and she will be donning an invisible burka, Batman and Robin can no longer fight the Penguin because he is a protected species, and Aqua Man was ordered not to do any more off shore summoning of his friends.


Most comic books have been on the far left fringe for decades now. There is no surprise or shock value in it anymore when they promote extreme left wing causes like socialism/communism, nor when they attack America or western values. 


I will never ever watch another superman movie or even think about buying my son anything to do with superman. The fact that they would put down or nation like this and slap in the face anyone who has drawn superman or grew up watching superman as a true testament of the American way of life is sickening to me. This is a disturbing trend among the liberal elite to bash our nation every chance they get even though we have brought freedom to all corners of the world. And superman was a representative of that. We as a nation might of made mistakes along the way but we have nothing to apoligize for to the world. What will these liberals ruin next. Lets see destroy our automotive industry check, destroy out manufacturing check, destroy our public schools check, destroy the American ideal of self reliance check, destroy traditional Amercian icons check, what's next hmmmm.


This surprises you? Isn't Clark Kent a "journalist" for the MSM, The New York Times... er... The Daily Planet? He's just another Marxist propagandist. I hope the writer gets stitched into the "Lucky Pierre" spot within a human centipede.
