I understand your point, but consider this origin......

A baby is orphanned by the death of his parents.
He is found, adopted, and raised by parents who are not of his kind in a world alien to his birthright.
His given name is unknown to his new parents and they give him a new name and identity.
As he matures he develops abilities that place him above the capabilities of normal men.

........of Tarzan.

Makes one wonder who Superman is based on?
