I've always thought that Clark Kent should be Jewish (as a nod to his creators). If I had control over his history, I'd have Jonathan Kent be Jewish and Martha Kent be a Protestant. In fact, I have an entire backstory for that idea.

Many people want others to accept their opinions as fact. If enough people accept them as fact then it gives the initial person or persons a feeling of power. This is why people will constantly talk about something they hate—they want others to feel the same way. It matters to them that others perceive things the same way that they do.

Well, a friend of mine did a story like that about Kal-El long lost brother Sar-El. I have a copy of the comic right in front of me.

Interesting. One thing I've always wanted to do is explore Superman's religious beliefs (both Terran and Kryptonian). I've come up with some different forms of Raoism (Classic, Neo, Helio, and Machina) and a religion based solely on Kryp and Tonn.

ya wanta read it?

Be warned, it uses the dreaded Bryne Krypton, but frankly the story wouldn't work using the Sliver Age version.

It would be a fun story to have on this site.
But that would be up to the Great one.

I'd like to read it. I don't really mind if it uses the sterile Krypton--provided the story is good.

Actually, if you hate that Krypton, then you might like it even more, LOL. I don't think he liked it at all himself.

I wouldn't say that I HATED it. It just didn't interest me nearly as much as the utopian Krypton. It was too much like a combination of THX 1138 and Solaria (from the Asimov novels). Besides, the dystopia concept was overused in the 80's--and I'm usually a fan of dystopias, too.

Anyway, thanks for the link.
