1) Since Superman has renounced is going to renounce his American citizenship, how would that affect his membership in the JLA? I ask because the JLA does operated globally, despite being called the Justice League of America and was under the impression that members have honorary citizenship in various countries.

2) If JLA members do not have honorary citizenship, how would they operate without causing international incidents. Yes, I know, when Starro attacks, no one cares at the moment, but when the worldwide threat has been defeated, and blame is assigned, as human beings are want to do, how would JLA be able to function without incurring various suits? I could easily see a country stating; "Thanks for saving us, now here's the bill"

3) I'm not trying to have a debate started. I just want some clarification. Cheers.

1. I'm nauseated with the whole concept of Superman renouncing his citizenship, especially within earshot of Amanda Waller (that is her in the panel with him, right?). It's an insult to the memory of Siegel, Shuster, Boring, Swan, Weisinger, Schwartz and all the other great creators associated with the character. Mike Friedrich tried a similar tack when he wrote the character and Elliott Maggin, among others, called it B.S. , just as when Frank Miller made him a tool of the U.S. Government in Dark Knight.
Anyway, I don't think it'll make that much a difference, since the big guns are miles away from JLA involvement now. Even when they were, at least one character had duel citizenship (Aquaman as King of Atlantis and Arthur Curry). It never was really brought up and the League were global protectors with honorary citizenships, which worked up to 52, when DC just had to bring in a Chinese superteam and turn Black Adam into a Dr. Doom (in terms of being an isolationist international leader) clone, instead of a tragic hero/villian.
2. I'd suspect that the Wayne Foundation, which funds the JLA, handles issues such as costs incurred and legal matters brought up as a result of cases.
