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.

Fathers are always waiting for their wayward children to return.

He is a self proclaimed enemy, open up a can of kick butt/
The King David was correct when he went up against the giant, against all odds and sanity he won. Israel does not fight alone, and no nation has the courage to stand with her, she really does not need nations she needs the one who defines the nations boraders and time.

Another one will take his place.
There will always be men like him. We must return to HaShem if He tells us to fight, then we fight. But always seek His face first.
