  1. Seeing as how I doubt Kal-El of Krypton was issued a social security number (no long form birth certificate?) I would argue that Superman was never an American citizen. Clark Kent, on the other hand, was. But only because Ma and Pa Kent lied.

    This is a non-issue unless Clark Kent renounces his citizenship.
