An NZ version of Supes would be SO much different. Like, he'd probably wear gumboots, and use duct tap and No8 fencing wire to solve everything.
Lots of people in the States would call someone like that a redneck (far from a superhero). Or MacGyver.
... And now he's saying "Screw the American way, I'm doing it the earthling way"?
More like "I'm doing things my way." The whole point is that he doesn't want to be seen as only acting in favor of the United States; instead, he's acting in favor of the global population, doing what he thinks is right without worrying about any nation being accused of sending him to interfere in other nations' affairs.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Hehe, there was a pretty good blog post at one of my favorite web comic sites about this storyline and it's "controversy", actually--basically about how superheroes do "controversial" crap like this all the time, it's dumb, and it's forgotten about sooner or later: http://www.shadowgirlscomic.com/news/3007/

That is kinda sad how a story plot point become retardedly ignored and life moves on. Plot should MEAN something to the character. Are they really running out of s*** to write?

America is MySpace, NASCAR and American Idol?
Wow.....no wonder Superman wants to renounce his citizenship. :P

Sort of? Although....also no, in a way. People keep rebooting storylines because they have new ideas, actually, but they want to start with a fresh slate on the character. That and when they realize a plot went over poorly or was not a great idea after all, they do the 'let us never speak of this again' thing and move along.

Apparently some point in the 1980's Superman was forced to film a porno with another superhero. They erased that rather strange storyline during one of the reboots.

I assume the WW2 Superman/golden age was also erased during one of the reboots,
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg
