According to Stephen Skelton, author of The Gospel According to the World's Greatest Superhero, the parallels between Superman and Jesus Christ are no accident, but rather, designed on purpose by the Superman TV show and movie storytellers.
What are some of these parallels?
Superman and his father have the same last name - El, which means "God" in Hebrew.
The original first names for Superman's parents were Mary and Joseph.
The villain Lex Luther sounds much like Lucifer of the Bible.
Superman and Jesus both experience death, resurrection and a return, or second coming.
