Quote:I'm up for seeing that, as I don't know what Superman's Jewish roots are. I know his creators are Jewish, but I have yet to put my finger on how their background translated to Superman. The Moses analogy and the Christ figure trope, notwithstanding.
Superman never had any 'Jewish roots'. Neither Siegel nor Shuster were observant Jews. Religion meant little to them. Superman's roots are in pre-1938 science fiction books and pulps, and the murder of Siegel's father.
All of the religious baggage - of any denomination - that's been foist on Superman has come from later creators or scholars trying to hijack the character for their own purposes, and who have little or no idea what was in Siegel's head when he crated him.
To them, his creators, he was as the Moses immigrant into a starnge new World, and though you do not like it, Superman is the Jesus of the DCU.Period...
