Last line from the linked article:
Do you think the shift to a more global role makes sense for Superman? If he really is going to renounce his U.S. citizenship in order to function as a more international figure, how do you think it will affect the character?
It won't affect the character at all. Nothing that anyone at DC Comics' publishing arm has done for the last 25 years has had any lasting effect on the character (with the possible exception of his marriage to Lois Lane, which was a terrible idea too, just like this latest boneheaded move). Fortunately for the few people who care about the character, his identity is too ingrained in popular culture for any of his current comics to matter to anyone.
Besides, he's basically wearing an American flag, fer chrissakes.
hehe Sorry to sound like a bitter old fuck, but I'm old enough to remember when Superman was still a source of inspiration for kids, and not based on some movie or cartoon, but based on the comics themselves, when they were still a popular medium and not just source material for merchandise and spinoff projects.
Has anyone been reading the comics lately? Is the actual story any good? Are there comics readers out there who enjoy anything that's been done with the character in a long time? Examples? Seriously, I'd love to hear from anyone who's read the character in the last couple decades, which I haven't really. And I'm not someone who hates all modern comics, I've read plenty of great ones.
