Okay, so I suppose Superman has always had vaguely messianic overtones, but this is pushing it a little far. I just saw the trailer from the new movie and the last line really caught me eye.
“it is this, their capacity for great good, that I send them you, my only son”
Tell me that dosn’t read like a passage into the new testament.
Personally, if I had to pick a comic character to be MY messiah, I’d pick, Oh I donno, wolverine or somebody kick ass like that.
