Orphaned heroes (either literal or figurative orphans) are quite common within the “monomyth.” Note Moses, Cinderella, Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker - as well as Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, et. al.

Though… it might be argued that since Supes underwent the tragedy once (with his biological parents) a repetition isn’t necessary.
