Don’tcha just love a good title?
When a couple of grandstanding politicos (and a none-too-bright NY Post columnist) were railing about a 6-page Superman story — which, clearly, none of them had read in full — re: Superman’s citizenship, I decided to write the below project pitch.
It seemed to me, the best response to the Superman “renouncing his citizenship” nonsense was to change the dialogue. In the story, Superman is the leader, the beacon. His relationship with the U.S. is, fittingly (and metaphorically), strained. This out-of-continuity mini is approached with the complexity of a political thriller, told, like a film, in 3 acts, with Superman in a real-life world which is still part of the DCU.
