Superman Renouncing U.S. Citizenship

Superman has started a stir with a bold declaration he intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship in a move aimed at giving him more global clout and authority.

The decision is made in a short story in "Action Comics" No. 900. It has caused consternation online among readers who liken the Man of Steel's declaration to go before the United Nations and "inform them I am renouncing my citizenship" to abandoning the ideals of truth, justice and the American way.

DC Comics said Thursday the Kryptonian superhero isn't abandoning his adopted country. It says he's putting a global focus on his never-ending battle against evil and trying to keep a world that's not his safe.
