Re: Is Superman A Jesus Metaphor?
Moses, Jesus, Heracles, the Nietzscheian Overman, the "epitome" of evolution, the pre-Nazi ideal of eugenic superscience, the two-fisted pulp hero; he's an amalgamation of all these archetypes, but with the moral values of a working class everyman. I don't want any one aspect of his to be overplayed. So, no, let's not go down the explicitly Jesus route with this reboot, please.
