    “The American Way” as something that is peculiarly “American,” or something that is universal? The Declaration of Independence though it may well be an “American” document, doesn’t present itself as such. Rather it presents itself as a universal document applicable to all places and all times.

    If a superhero fights for unalienable rights to “liberty” and “equality” is s/he fighting for “Americanism” or something universal? I’d like to see comics explore that theme.Report

    American Way is a supremely average in-flight magazine. I’d just as soon renounce it for whatever Delta or United has to offer.Report

    How can Superman be an American citizen with no birth certificate?Report

      I imagine that he would have been Naturalized at one point by Congressional Order.

      It just means that he couldn’t run for President.Report

        There was an Elseworlds where he became president. I’ll have to dig it up to see how they addressed the issue. They might not have. It’s my belief that writers need to take classes in US government to avoid things like a Senator saying that he aspires to be Speaker of the House (as was the case in Spawn).

        Kal-El would have to be naturalized, though Clark Kent would almost certainly have a birth certificate erroniously saying that he was born in Small County, Kansas.Report

      And for that matter, why hasn’t the MSM asked to see Martha’s birth records or Clark? Are we to believe she was nine months pregnant in the high-profile job of farmer’s wife, and no on happened to notice she was with child?Report

      • Avatar Jaybird says:

        They had several miscarriages early in their marriage, RTod.

        There was a particularly bad winter and Clark was born to them at the end of it. They just didn’t tell anybody about the pregnancy because of the multiple disappointments they had gone through.Report

    Get Superman a cute blue helmet, a pack of Gauloises and a comfy chair, and it can be truth and justice the UN way.Report
