Yessir. I've just heard over the years about Superman's Jewish roots, such as they may be, though I've never seen them displayed. The Christ figure trope has been done, and to death (no joke intended), but I don't think Siegel or Shuster every implied anything Jewish with Superman that was religious or cultural, let alone stated directly.

I think that Bendis might be bringing back to Supes his fighting against eveil and for the individual, as when first showing up, Superman was shown beating down wife abusers and other unsavory people!
