In 1938 a spacecraft crash landed in Kansas. The aircraft contained an infant. That infant grew up to become a symbol that is as American as baseball and apple pie and the US passport. This is of course the story of fiction and the character is Superman. Superman is a representation of America and has been since 1938. However, that is all about to change. It has been reported that DC Comics plans to go in a different direction as Superman will renounce his American citizenship and give up his US passport.
Action Comics #900 is the comic book issue in which the Man of Steel will give up his passport. No, he’s not giving up his passport to avoid paying taxes. He is giving up his passport in an effort to work on a more global scale.
Who knows if this is a ploy to get more readers or if it is a critical statement against America, but I wonder if Superman will still be required to show his US passport at border crossings? Actually, since he is traveling by air a US passport card would not be sufficient, he would need to have a US passport booklet.
And come to think of it, what about Clark Kent? Will he give up his passport too? Where will he live? How will he leave the country without his passport and how will he return if he changes his mind?
Even though this is purely fictitious, it is still interesting to see how DC Comics handles Clark Kent’s passport. I wonder if Superman actually needs a passport anyway.
