Quote# 81167

This as got to be a sad day in American history. Our beloved Man of Steel has decided he doesn't think the USA is exceptional anymore. He has decided he's going before the United Nations to renounce his US citizenship.

This is just one more step to a one world government. Now I have never been a follower of Superman comics, but I did enjoy the idea, movies, and games of Superman. His outfit is even red and blue. I will now be boycotting anything related to superman. I blame this on the liberal movement and socialist agenda of our current administration

Sad day...Lord please come soon. I don't know how much longer I can watch America fall.

Eh, there are smileys all over the place. I think they're just taking this as a joke.

Superman’s not real. You know that, right?

@toth: There are always smilies all over the place at Rapture Ready. Near as I can tell, they are quite sincere about their use.

Generally speaking, when a country begins to believe they are exceptional, they start doing exceptionally bad things.

Ahem, I hate to be the one to have to point out what I thought was obvious but....

You know Superman is an alien right? Not born in the USA? Not a natural born citizen?

He's also fake you fucking imbecile.

You should go back and read the things your community was posting when Obama was elected. Pretty much, 'Screw th U.S., Heaven is my true home!'

A fantasy figure is doing something in a Comics magazine and that makes this a sad day in American history? People are prohibited from marrying their loved ones, in real life. That's much more sad, I'd say.

Have you ever seen a chart of all the flaggs in the world? Did you note that quite a few more countries than the US have red and blue in their flaggs?

You have never been a follower of Superman, but now you are going to boycott Superman-related stuff? I bet they are REALLY scared to lose your non-existant support.

There, there, little buddy, Jesus is still a patriotic American.

God bless America!

RisingTide, get a life! It's just a comic book!

My life has been ruined by a fictional character...oh, wait. Jesus was fictional and he wasn't a US citizen either...my life is over!

Only otakus are allowed to break down over what happens to their fandom. Now you go to fangirl prison, where every guard has fifty ejaculating tentacles!

Not even Superman can take the teabaggers anymore.

You've been through 9/11, several school shootings, the Tuscon shooting, hurricane Katrina, and several other natural and man-made disasters. But no, a fucking fictional character moving to a new country is a sad day for American history which makes you pine for death. You people have more than just a screw loose, your whole device is a shamble of loose pieces.

You realise there was a whole series of Superman comics called Red Sun where Superman was raised in the USSR instead and was a Communist defender of the people?

Gotta show that to them.

Burning Stake

You know Superman is an alien right? Not born in the USA? Not a natural born citizen?

At least one of the other posters pointed this out to him.

I've always thought that comics doing exceptional things like this were more for ratings and subsciptions than anything else...I would hope that it wasn't a case of the editors "liberal movement and socialist agenda"...howeverlong DC's* been taking orders strictly from the White House! : )

[*The comic company, not the city; I see it would be easy to get those two confused!]

Wait'll they realize the Kryptonian illegal immigrant was the product of a Canadian writer. It's like when they changed Wonder Woman. She was an illegal immigrant from a country hostile to the American government, but people complained that her patriotic costume was going to change.

Well, the proposed changes sucked ass. But not for those reasons.

If you HAD been a follower of Superman comics, you would know the REAL reason this is stupid: Superman was already granted citizenship in every nation in the UN back in 1974.

That's an "I wish" kind of thread. As in "I wish I could believe everyone posting there is a poe, but I fear that many of them are serious".

Doubting Thomas

You do know that Superman is a fictional character, don't you? And even if he weren't, he is an illegal alien without a long form birth certificate.

So a fictional alien who was never a US Citizen in the first place goes to the UN, and you think that's a sign of the rapture? Wow, just... wow.

Man of Steel - would that be Stalin? I gather that's what his adopted name actually means. Strange, though. I thought he was Russian, and had died in about 1952.

As to a comic book character, if this is what is intended, then someone has a difficult time in distinguishing fantasy from reality.

5/9/2011 6:39:48 AM

I thought captain America was supposed to be extremely patriotic??
Also comics are not real.......then again when have these people ever been able to tell the difference between fact or fiction

5/9/2011 6:44:36 AM

tmarcl

Wow. Just...wow.

Reading the thread over there, it's just amazing to me how seriously they're all taking this. I mean they're literally decrying the destruction of America, and tearing Superman into shreds!

It's fiction, for crying out loud. Hell, it's even more fictional than your bible, because at least it admits straight up that it's fictional. Get over yourselves, already!

Two words. Comic. Book.

This is just one more step to a one world government.

I'm sorry, but do you actually think that plot devices in comic books have any effect whatsoever on politics in the real world? Can you possibly be that fucking stupid?

Now I have never been a follower of Superman comics, but I did enjoy the idea, movies, and games of Superman. I will now be boycotting anything related to superman.

I'm sure that boycotting a comic book you didn't even read will really send DC Comics a message and possibly impact their bottom line.

His outfit is even red and blue.

Yeah? So is the Russian flag, the British flag, and the French flag, just to name a few.

I blame this on the liberal movement and socialist agenda of our current administration

Yeah, I'm sure the Obama administration has nothing better to do than dictate editorial policy and storyline direction to DC Comics. Asshat.

Sad day...Lord please come soon. I don't know how much longer I can watch America fall.

This is just sad.

(emph-ass-is added):

"Our beloved Man of Steel"

Ahem... (*goes into nerd mode*)

I think you'll find that Superman/Clark Kent isn't American (even though he was raised by the Kent family); nor is he even Terran (that's 'of Earth', for the hard of thinking like you lot on Ruptured Retards).

Superman/Clark Kent, a.k.a. Kal-El, is an immigrant of the now nonexistent world Krypton.

"I will now be boycotting anything related to superman."



Good luck in finding any product that is Kryptonian then.

...oh, and why are you only now getting your tights in a twist about a supposed unamerican Superman (when, like I say - he's not even Terran)? And how convenient for you to claim 'I have never been a follower of Superman comics, but I did enjoy the idea, movies, and games of Superman', especially when this particular (alternative) scenario exists:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman:_Red_Son

In Soviet Russia, lady doth protests thou.

"I blame this on the liberal movement and socialist agenda of our current administration"

President Barack Obama makes no secret of the fact he's a huge fan of "Spider-Man". Your argument is invalid.

"Sad day...Lord please come soon. I don't know how much longer I can watch America fall."

That process (and last time I heard, the unholy financial mess was created before Obama was elected) started when the God Emperor of Fucking Up, George Dumbya Bush was elected. By you of the Religious Right. Ergo, America's 'fall' is all your fault. Q.E.D., bitches.

...still, you could always switch your fanboy alliance to Joey Jones and his giant robot (who battle against the evil alien Skrugg), in "Heroman":

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heroman

Said robot even has the good ol' Red, White & Blue on it's design, so you should be okay, RisingTwat.

Created by Stan Lee, via his own production company 'POW' (Purveyors of Wonder), and the animation company 'BONES'.

...which is Japanese. The designs of Joey, Heroman & co*. even conform to Japanese 'anime' stereotypes (big sparkly eyes, etc) I'm afraid.

*- Stan Lee even has cameo appearances therein:



'Excelsior!' X3

"Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound! Superman. Strange visitor from another planet who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Superman, who can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in his bare hands; and who, disguised as Mohammad Wadud, mild-mannered reporter for a great Islamabad newspaper, fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the Pakistani way!"
