off topic- but very relavent: the message of the superhero myth is that the regular person is powerless. the supervillan or the superhero have free will, the regular man is controled. that is the message of greek tragedy- and as so pagen. jews come from a difrent outlook. god is all powerful, man has a mission, andhis siatah deshaiah depends on him, the gorila or superhero or the goliath standing in his way are irelevant to god.
