Quote:Then, as I say to Jesusfan, you need to show your evidence. Cite a few pre-1945 Superman stories written by Jerry Siegel where either the Kents or Krypton feature.
One of the reasons I don't do diligence for others any longer i.e. "show evidence" is because of statements like you've just made. Look at your phrasing: "either the Kents or Krypton feature". You don't want evidence, you want an example that meets the standard which you've set in your mind. You also state the following, with no evidence:
"However, Siegel and Shuster had absolutely no interest in the Kents. They're both dead by the events of Action Comics #1, and are nothing more than a throwaway plot device to give Superman a bit of backstory, just as Krypton was."
Were either of them quoted as saying this? Can you provide evidence? It's obvious that the Kents were not a "throwaway plot device", though that may be how you see them and feel about them.
Quote:I agree it negates nothing that would come later, but the conversation is about Superman getting back to his 'Jewish roots', and my assertion is that he never had any, not in any story written by Siegel.
It was. You brought the Kents.
