On Not Using Man of Steel’s Superman As A Christ Analogy, Ever.

Obvious spoilers for Man of Steel in these two links, but if you were considering using Man of Steel’s Superman as a picture of Christ (which, given the heavy-handed biblical imagery would be understandable) then read these two first and see why you shouldn’t. I’ll probably write more about it from an explicitly Christian perspective once it’s out of cinemas and spoilers aren’t such a big deal, but these two guys hit the nail on the head with the new Superman film. The first is by Mark Waid who has written Superman for DC (and a bunch of great stuff for Marvel too) and knows his stuff. The second is by a guy called Andrew Wheeler. He hasn’t written Superman but turns out, still knows his stuff as well.
