DC Comics Turns Superman Against the USA

Superman has just flipped the United States of America a super powered middle finger. In an upcoming issue of Action Comics, DC Comics is to have Superman appear before the United Nations to renounce his American citizenship.

“Truth, justice, and the American way is not enough anymore,” Superman tells us. Screw you, America.

In a convoluted storyline, Superman is to decide that being a representative of the United States of America is just too gauche for an upstanding citizen of the world like Supes. It’s too restricting, apparently, to represent the freest nation on earth, the nation that gave birth to the modern world.

So, America, Superman just isn’t that into you any more.

As the story goes, Superman flies to Tehran, Iran to nonviolently come to the support of the Iranian dissenters facing the mad Mullahs that have been terrorizing them since 1979.

When he comes back to the USA, our government is furious that Supes interfered with foreign policy. Because Superman was seen as an agent of the US by the murderous Iranian regime, the Iranian government denounced Superman and the USA over his pointless intervention.

At this point, in a fit of pique Superman tells the USA that he is going to renounce his citizenship apparently because he doesn’t want to be a pawn of US foreign policy.

Now, let’s think about this “logic” — or lack thereof — that causes Superman to renounce his citizenship.

He’s perfectly willing to stand idly by offering only empty words and symbolic support of the supporters of democracy in Iran. Superman has no problem just flying in for a ten-minute sit in with the Iranian protesters but otherwise doing nothing as the Mullahs continue to torture, rape and kill the Iranian people. Then he just flies away with nothing changed. Imagine how you’d feel when the most powerful person in the world just flies in for a photo op then leaves without actually helping you at all. Gee, sounds like Obama, doesn’t it?

In any case, Superman is all upset at the USA for the situation. And where does Superman draw the line? Why in remaining a US citizen, of course.

You see this new Superman is more upset at some sticky foreign policy problems than he is at actual torture, rape, murder and oppression of an entire nation.

Just like all liberals, it is easier to stand up against the USA than it is to stand up to any real oppressors. Just like all liberals this Superman hates the USA more than terrorists, more than tyrants, and more than despots because it is easier to attack the USA than it is to solve the problems presented by real evil.

So, I suppose that this Superman sees nothing wrong at all in North Korea and China. The USA is the great evil, after all.

Now, for some time the comics industry has been steadily turning comic book characters away from their American roots and allegiance and pushing them toward an ideologically left-wing philosophy. Superman is only the latest comic book character to turn his back on the United States of America.

There have been many instances of the comics industry trying to influence its readers to turn against the USA. In December, for instance, Batman Comics created a Muslim superhero in France. Yes after all the murderous outrages committed by Muslims, DC Comics decided to make Muslims the hero. And not long after that the makers of the new Captain America movie announced that in overseas releases they intended to get rid of the fact that Captain America is, well Captain “America.”

That isn’t the only whitewashing of America that the new Captain America movie looked to implement as the film was being planned. The director of the movie said that his Captain America won’t be a big “flag waver.” Imagine that. Captain America also not being that into America.

It’s PCism run amuck, for sure. But it isn’t surprising for DC, a comic book company that has a character that is based on “corporate greed.” Nor is it surprising in an industry where tea party members are made the enemy of super heroes. For the character based on “corporate greed” look up DC’s Larfleeze character and see the Marvel Comics’ Captain America, issue 602 where The Captain makes Tea Partiers into a danger to America (Marvel later apologized).

These few examples aren’t the only ones, either. Among many other instances, in April of 2010 the venerable Archie Comics announced they were adding a gay character and back in 2007 movie makers announced that they intended to remove all mentions of the U.S. military from G.I. Joe (they later relented to a degree).

The fact is the comics industry coupled with the movies based on them have been trying to excise anything American from them for quite some time. In the end, this move in the Superman Comics is just one more move toward de-emphasizing America in America’s comics. It’s just one more American icon taken away from us by the PC crowd.
