Re: All Things Superman: An Open Discussion - - - - - - - - Part 17
I think my main problem with the "destiny" thing is that it ruins the Moses aspect of the character. I never liked Superman being a Jesus parallel, because his creators were Jewish. Being sent away by his parents to save him, without them knowing where he will end up, is distinctly a Moses parallel.
And with the voice over from the teasers saying that the people will stumble but follow him, it sounds like the movie is going for a more "Moses leads the people out of the desert" thing than a "Jesus saves everybody from their sins" thing.
Well, it's been a shattering disillusionment. Goodnight.
