So does this mean The DaVinci Code was just a reboot of the new testament?

no just a reboot of Holy Blood, Holy Grail

Holy Blood, Holy Grail 

Is that the sequel to Holy Terror, Batman!?

OK, fine. Then Superman is a reboot of "Gladiator" with a little pulp SF and The Phantom thrown in.

I'm a bit of two worlds on Superman's marriage.

To begin, I've always considered there is something intrinsically wrong with his pursuing a relationship with Lois.  The reason is simply that she is a mortal.  Superman, done right for me, is very Maggin-istic.  I am with the god-like Superman.  So, from that perspective, when I consider their relationship, it looks more like the Zeus' lust thing, than an honest relationship.

Maybe, this is the little mythical aspect of the relationship that causes it to work on many levels.

For me, Wonder Woman, etc. are all much more appropriate mates to one who could be really a father to a new pantheon on Earth.

But, if we go the route of the humanized Kryptonian - then sure, Lois has got many of the cherished qualities that Clark would look for in a mate, the relationship makes sense.

Ultimately it is really just how good the writer is with the subject matter - if he thinks it's in his way, then it will probably be so in his writing.  If he likes it, it will be useful in the story.  If the writer shows good insight into the relationship then I'll enjoy it.  If he's interested in making Lois jelous - then just end the relationship and let him go after someone else.  I just think life would be more fulfilling for the character if he could go about his duties with his mate than without.

I like Alan Moore's bit where Superman and WW don't get together because it'd be "too predictable".  If I were gonna go for a non-obvious heroic choice for Superman to marry, it'd be Mary Marvel.  He'd be able to graduate from LL to MM.

You know, Uncle Mxy, you have a real talent for this sort of thing. I can't wait to see the Elseworlds version, in which their offspring has all of Superman's powers, but only when it says the magic word "Krypton!"

Ok, I'll bite, what would Krypton stand for?
