Superman fans and people who aren't ashamed of our country are hacked off. Superman's famous catchphrase has always been "fighting for truth, justice, and the American way". But DC Comics has removed the American part.
Now Superman will fight for “truth, justice and a better tomorrow.”
So they're not saying he doesn't like America anymore. They're spinning it as he belongs to the whole world. (Follow the money: as an international franchise he makes more $$ for them).
“Superman’s new motto of ‘Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow’ will better reflect the global storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor the character’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world. Superman has long been a symbol of hope who inspires people from around the world, and it is that optimism and hope that powers him forward with this new mission statement.”
- Jim Lee, DC Chief Creative Officer, as told to Comics Blog.
Superman historians will note that he didn't start saying "the American Way" in the comics. It started being used in Superman radio serials during WWII. It's being used in various mediums since then.
The new motto, minus the America part, will be used in television, movies, and video games.
This isn't the only news making shift in the Superman universe lately. DC writer Tom Taylor announced recently that Clark Kent's son Jon is bisexual.
