Pull List; seems to be too long to fit in my sig...
I do have common sense. I'm just saying that it doesn't matter what the Church says, it doesn't change what's in your heart. That's what that person on the Superman board over at the DC forums made and that's something that I agree with.Mat have some common sense would you? Your arguments are so convoluted by loving Supes that they make no sense. if you say you are not a Catholic priest, in your heart doesn't count for being a Catholoic. Do you understand that? It doesn't matter that you think you are a priest of the religion of Mat - you are not a Catholic priest.
It's not naieve to believe that maybe a gesture of good faith can go a long way. It's not naieve to want to avoid starting a war because he wanted to do some good, in a matter that is sensitive. Iran may not have had issue with him before, because he never injected himself in a political matter. What he did was essentially make the Iranian President look bad, because he was going to order the deaths of everyone who was at the protest rally, because of the very simple fact that they were protesting his government. His rule. And instead, because Superman showed up, his soldiers didn't carry out their orders and which makes him look weak. So he gets mad at Superman and chooses to hurl accusations at both him and the US. It makes the US question his motivations. Superheroes are on shaky ground as it is, and Kryptonians in particular. Clark did what his heart and conscience felt was right. Just as he's always done.Originally Posted by liheibao
In Byrne's MOS # 1 and properly acknowledged in MOS # 6. Since he was "born" in America by default that makes him an American citizen.
Just for the line "I'm a legal alien"
"Mistah Joker, he dead."
Yeah, but was dregj referring to the Superman persona, or the Clark Kent one.
made a citizen after doomsday? I thought there'd been several resets/reboots since then?do they only discount the inconvenient parts
Doomed Planet. Desperate Scientists. Last Hope. Kindly Couple.
I totally forgot that BirthRight and Superman/Batman have shown that there were clearly changes in his place of birth which invalidated Byrne's MOS. Kal-el was already a baby and no longer a fetus when he was placed in the rocket in BirthRight and Superman/Batman. Thanks to everyone who remembered those events.
If that's the case, it would be after Superman's death that he became an American citizen. That would be one of the "definitive" instance in continuity that recognize that he was American and there was no other retcons that seemed to erase what Clinton said if my memory serves me right.
