Re: Henry Cavill IS Superman: - Part 10
I guess I don't mind the Christ/Chosen One parallels as long as they don't beat us over the head with them. It worked really, really well in Kingdom Come and (arguably) in the Return of Superman storyline because it kind of made Superman feel a bit more special in regards to other heroes. Superman, initially, was the ultimate hero for a long time because he was the most powerful... but then DC introduced characters like Captain Atom (who I hate by the way) who trumped him in terms of power. So making him some sort of Christlike figure, rather than just an alien who gained powers from solar radiation, sort of made him "ultimate" again.
