5.0 out of 5 stars Character evolution ... July 6 2006
By Ryan S - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While I don't believe Superman was originally created as an allegory for Christianity, he has, nonetheless, evolved over time through the hands of many different creators, to such a standard and it is a very obvious and intentional parallel in the modern cannon.

Literary critics apply similiar readings to classic literature throughout history - adapting the reading to fit their own perspective. Frankenstien, for instance, can be read with political themes, feminist themes, religious themes, and more. That doesn't mean Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley originally intended it to be taken in each of those contexts, but it has all the same been taken there.

Why should Superman be any different?

Comic books are our modern heroes. They are our mythology, and sequential storytelling can be dated back thousands of years. There are good and bad examples, to be sure, but comic books should be considered every bit as much literature and art as anything being taught in the colleges and universities today.

And Superman is the grandfather of it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is SUPER!!!! Dec 7 2015

This book was well-written and gives you a good comparison between the two iconic heroes Superman and Jesus the Christ. It was so intriguing that I didn't want to put the book down until I finished reading it. It shows you so much. The author really knows his Superman trivia and his Bible. A must-read for all Superman fans and/or Christians alike. Excellent read!

This book helped me to give a talk to a Christian Youth Group of the spirituality of God and how it relates to the greatest Superhero of all, Superman. Its a fun and easy read and is recommended to anyone who is interested in seeing the ties between Superman and our christian values
