David Goyer doesn't regret his Superman story forfeiting US citizenship

Here's a blogger presenting a short Superman story he wrote, and had illustrated by the artist Austin Beach, as a response to David Goyer's meaningless tale of Superman giving up US citizenship as though he ever had it in his costumed guise. The blogger also says that:
Although commercialism forced him to make Superman admit he was an American in his recent Man of Steel movie script, Goyer regularly defends this story and denounces and insults comic book fans. He doesn’t like America or us, for some reason.
Goyer doesn't like the She-Hulk & Martian Manhunter either, nor does he have particularly good manners. I hesitate to think what they're like at the table. And while Goyer may defend his bizarre leftist leaning in Superman's books, he doesn't seem very determined to answer to his critics about his comments on Jennifer Walters and J'onn J'onzz, recalling he kept quiet after that nasty audio interview he gave. If he's apologized for his profane, sleazy chat, I have yet to find it.

But a good point is made that this is not the kind of scriptwriter suited for superhero movies if he's not going to discuss comics intelligently. That he wouldn't even mention Stan Lee and John Buscema are the co-creators of She-Hulk and opine what he thinks of their approach is testimony to Goyer's lack of faith in his own babble.

Avi, thanks for the shoutout to my Superman citizenship story! That led me to discover your blog; it looks great, can't wait until I have time to read it thoroughly. Keep the faith for decent heroes in your writing. I certainly wish the best for Israel and your health and safety as well.

You're welcome, Jerry.
