And the Lord sent forth Superman to smiteth the gentiles.

Apparently some Rabbi noticed that the kiddies liked Kavalier and Clay and decided to play piggyback. He has just published Up, Up, and Oy Vey, contending that comic books actually find much of their inspiration in Jewish tradition. Superman, propelled in a spaceship from Krypton to Earth, as stand-in for Moses and his journey down the river in a basket? Eh. Superman's love for Lois Lane as representing every Jewish boy's love of shiksas? That's a little better.
