In the nine page back-up story, titled "The Incident," Superman stated that he intended to officially renounce his United States citizenship. It was a shocking revelation to many, hardcore and passing fans alike. What had happened to this character who once stood for "Truth, Justice and The American Way?" And what will it mean for the future of the character in all forms from the comics, to TV to movies?
On a similar note, there was some fan backlash to the casting of Henry Cavill as Superman for the Man of Steel film. He will be the first Superman who was born outside of the United States. Again, fans wondered why such a traditionally American character would be played by an actor from the United Kingdom.
