Presumably since he was raised in Kansas by two parents who found him there - it's not like babies that get dropped off at hospitals aren't American citizens because nobody knows who their parents are. It's a logical assumption.

Superman giving up his citizenship, on the other hand, is kind of dumb as a gesture. And kind of antithetical to his origin, too.

Well yeah. Clark Kent has US citizenship. Superman? Dunno.

And since I doubt he'll reveal himself as Clark Kent to the world it seems a weird thing to say. And I think you have to have a citizenship with a country, trying to take away any citizenship would be impossible, I think.

Unless he wants to say he legally controls a part of the unclaimed Antarctic (which could work I guess) as his own country.

Pyro, that's a totally legitimate point and I should have remembered that folks in the DCU don't actually know that Superman is from Kansas. Apologies for the condescension and the brain fart.

He should just take over some unclaimed rock in the middle of the ocean.

There are stateless persons out there; renouncing citizenship does not require becoming a citizen of another nation.

Not to mention those who've been stripped of their citizenship by their government, usually for political reasons.
