“From the very beginning, the Superman mythos reflected his creators’ Jewish backgrounds,” Simcha Weinstein, “the Comic Book Rabbi,” wrote on his Web site, rabbisimcha.com.
“Superman and his nebbish alter ego, Clark Kent, are now recognized, in retrospect, as a complex symbol of immigrant identity and assimilation, the embodiment of the American Dream, as imagined by two second-generation Jewish kids.”
Not so, counters Stephen Skelton, author of the new book “The Gospel According to the World’s Greatest Superhero.”
Skelton acknowledges that the character, like Jesus, had Jewish roots, but he argues that the Man of Steel really is a “Christ” figure.
Read the rest and leave your 2 cents, what other superheroes are possibly Jewish?
