Is Superman an American Super Hero? Yes he is. Superman is one of the most american super heroes i can think of. Always thinking of the right thing to do and saving people at the same time Superman represents a true american. We also need to realize superman was born in America when he was made up by jewish comic book writers. America and their comics have been in love with eachother for the longest time. We need to realize how much bigger comics used to be in this country and how so many children aspired to be superman. I cannot think of any reasons why superman wouldnt be american. Superman is as American as comics get. As a kid i always remember watching Superman and hearing is it a bird is it a plane no its superman. The fact that superman only takes place in america and he is an american charecter makes it obvious that superman is an american charecter.
