Superman renounces his American citizenship

He may stand for truth and justice, but Superman is giving up on the American way. In issue #900 of Action Comics, the Man of Steel renounces his United States citizenship.

According to ComicsAlliance, the comic book sees the superhero flying to Tehran to support protesters who are demonstrating against the Iranian regime. But the security advisor to the U.S. president becomes upset with him because the Iranian government mistakenly believes Superman was sent there by America and considers his actions an act of war.

As a result, it was extremely difficult to watch the episode with dry eyes.
