All really good points. It will be interesting to see what Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan do with Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel film. For decades, Superman was a symbol of U.S. imperialism, who stood for "Truth, Justice, and the American way." Superman was the ultimate American citizen. Then, last year, in a strange turn around, Superman, in the comics, renounced his U.S. citizenship, to become a world citizen. It will be interesting to see which Superman we get. Cultural heroes change with the times.
