    Superman to give up US citizenship.

    Superman Renounces U.S. Citizenship in 'Action Comics' #900 - ComicsAlliance | Comic book culture, news, humor, commentary, and reviews

    ...Superman announces that he is going to give up his U.S. citizenship. Despite very literally being an alien immigrant, Superman has long been seen as a patriotic symbol of "truth, justice, and the American way," from his embrace of traditional American ideals to the iconic red and blue of his costume. What it means to stand for the "American way" is an increasingly complicated thing, however, both in the real world and in superhero comics, whose storylines have increasingly seemed to mirror current events and deal with moral and political complexities rather than simple black and white morality.

    It is related to China cornering the rare earth's market. I mean do you know the price of Kryptonite now!

    Technically I dont think its possible for him to renounce. One of the rules associated with renouciation is that you have a country to go to afterwards. Since he hasnt applied for the Eligibility for Verification of that, he cannot just up and waltz away.
