"Superman Renounces His American Citizenship"

Grok that, Super Dude, almost gave up my citizenship during the Cheney presidency.

I didn't leave my country; it left me.

[...According to ComicsAlliance, the comic book sees the superhero flying to Tehran to support protesters who are demonstrating against the Iranian regime. But the security adviser to the U.S. president becomes upset with him because the Iranian government mistakenly believes Superman was sent there by America and considers his actions an act of war.

After realizing that he behaved foolishly, Superman decides that he will renounce his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day but continue to fight crime from a global perspective.

Superman -- an alien who came to Earth from the planet Krypton -- explains that he "can't help but see the bigger picture" and that the world is "too connected" for him to identify himself as being solely American.]
