    Good question, I am under the belief he is of dual citizenship but he shares a lot in common with the likes of Thor, Hercules and other alien members of the Avengers in that he is not really bound to any one place in particular. Dane has spent considerably more time in Avalon, and possibly Otherworld, than he has in Britain or America. So I would speculate there is some licence with the security services/government that gives these characters special dispensation and residency to travel between countries. But to address your point I would have to say I would be very surprised if Dane hadn't dual citizenship in America and Britain. It would be remarkable if he hadn't....

It does raise a more interesting question, and that is how does Marvel Universe Earth deal with immigration, particularly those from other dimensions, realities, etc.?  We know Quasar acted as an alien immigration officer for a time in his solo title, although that seemed to be more to identify the Cosmic Assassin as opposed to him being mandated by any Earth organization.  I understand S.W.O.R.D. acts more in that an official capacity there, but their mandate doesn't seem to extend to dimensions, realities, etc.  Amanda Sefton acted as the gatekeeper in Limbo to prevent incursions to Earth, but that was a short-lived role for her too.
