Exactly, agreed on all points. If it is the Kents' Midwestern values that form his moral compass as Superman, as it has typically been depicted, the only logical conclusion is for Superman to be as much Clark Kent (ie. the son of John and Martha Kent) as Kal-El. I like the comparison to Bruce Wayne quite a bit.
