Superman renounces US citizenship!

Superman has started a stir with a declaration in the new issue of "Action Comics" that he intends to renounce his U.S. citizenship because he's tired of his actions being construed as instruments of U.S. policy.

The Man of Steel, who emigrated to earth as a child from Krypton and was adopted by the Kents in Smallville, Kan., comes to the conclusion that he's better off serving the world at large after he's accused of causing an international incident by flying to Tehran amid a large protest.

Noting the huge police presence and warnings from the army there about harsh repercussions, he wanted the demonstrators to know "that they weren't alone."

The nine-page story was written by David S. Goyer and was drawn by Miguel Sepulveda. In it, Superman for 24 hours stands silently, bearing the brunt of gasoline bombs, taunts and threats but also receiving cheers and roses from supporters, as the more than 1 million-strong crowd protests but isn't fired on before the demonstration ends peacefully.

"I stayed in Azadi Square for 24 hours. I didn't move. I didn't speak. I just stayed there," Superman tells the U.S. national security adviser, who has feared the all-powerful hero has gone rogue.

But Iran's government refers to it as an act of war and accuses him of acting on behalf of the U.S. president.

And that, Superman explains, is why he is going to give up his citizenship.

"'Truth, justice and the American way' — it's not enough anymore," he says. "The world's too small, too connected."

In this comic book image released by DC Comics, Superman is shown in the latest of issue of Action Comics No. 900, where he renounces his U.S. citizenship because of his concerns that his actions are seen as instruments of U.S. foreign policy. DC Comics says the story reflects the global nature of the famous Kryptonian and that he remains committed to his adopted home and roots as a Kansas farm boy from Smallville. [AP Photo/DC Comics]

A Beltane Tribute to Beauty & Wisdom

Last photo taken with my dad....

This was at my niece Candy's wedding in Singapore, April 2004. Six months later, on 14 October 2004, my dad breathed his last as the sun rose and he was getting sponged down by three nurses. Just one day before, his 11th great-grandchild, Hana, was born to my #1 daughter Moonlake and her husband Dr Ansgar Cheng.

My dearly beloved dad, Lee Hong Wah, was born 1 May 1916 and would have celebrated his 95th solar orbit today.

Last year I wrote a short, sweet tribute to him. If you missed it, go here.
