Huckabee, responding to the comic book flap Sunday on Fox News, called it "disturbing" that the larger than life superhero would give up his citizenship.
"Well it is a comic book, but, you know it's disturbing that Superman who has always been an American icon is now saying I’m not going to be a citizen," he said. "I think it’s a part of a bigger trend of Americans almost apologizing for being Americans."
Huckabee said he wouldn't purchase the comic book, and that American kids should be tought that their country is great.
"I’m disturbed by this whole globalist trend. I think we ought to be teaching young Americans that they’re young Americans, that it means something to be an American," he said. "There’s something great about this country."
