A distant but loving father with immense knowledge and will sends his only son into the world to guide the people, and with the son’s immense powers also to save them from both their own evil and more cosmic threats. We’re not talking about Jesus; we’re talking about Superman. The messianic parallels between the comic book hero and Christ go deep, and far more scholarly work than the video below has been done on the Jewish writers and their longing for a messiah, but none quite capture the joy of knowing that here is someone to save us, powerful to lead us into the sun, as this little boy’s reaction to Man of Steel. When Superman takes flight, his reaction is full of excitement and hope. Check it out in the video below.
