What! Clark is totally a US citizen; he was adopted by a nice US couple. He couldn't run for prez, but he had better vote!

Aw, Superman is adorable! "I don't want to commit voter fraud!" However, mordacai is technically right, I believe. (Unless, perhaps, Clark feels his adoption was fraudulent because his true origins were hidden from the adoption agency, therefore he's not truly an American citizen? Didn't keep him from getting a job as an American citizen, however...)

Post-Crisis Byrne made a big deal out of the idea that it was Super-fetus who was rocketed off Krypton in a birthing matrix, so that he was actually 'born' on American soil. I haven't read Birthright, so don't know whether that's still canon (even as far as anything at DC is canon anymore).

Great art as always, C!

I have no idea what the last Crisis did to Superman's origin, but Birthright featured Jor-El and Lara placing their only son in a tiny rocket and wishing him goodbye. Which has a lot more emotional punch than Byrne's scene where Jor-El orders a robot to attach a stardrive to his sperm repository bubble.

Yeah, but Byrne did make Superman an American citizen, because he was "born" in Kansas. I understand why they changed it back to an infant Kal-El in some kind of suspended animation.

Why this is adorable. And frankly, after that whole Lex for President thing, I can understand why Superman is a bit skittish about voting.
