Warning: SPOILERS ahead for the 900th issue of Action Comics. If you don’t want to know, stop reading now.
Superman is celebrating his 900th issue of Action Comics this week. And the issue is creating some conversation on-line.
In the new issue, the Man of Steel renounces his U.S. citizenship.
After officials criticize him for joining a million protesters in a peaceful anti-Ahmadinejad vigil in Iran, he reflects, “I’m tired of having my actions construed as instruments of US policy. ‘Truth, Justice and the American Way’ — it’s not enough anymore. The world’s too small. Too connected.”
The move is being done to help rebrand and make Superman more marketable to a world-wide audience says DC and Warner Brothers.
