Who’s Your Superhero

[I have a new post up at Think Christian. Here’s the opening:]

Man of Steel or Lantern of Light?

They found Krypton! Just in time, too, since we have the new Superman movie Man of Steel right around the corner.

Well, the astrophysicist working with DC Comics has found a spot in the universe that fits the general parameters for Krypton’s location. It would be hard to prove, seeing as how Krypton blew up decades ago. You could go there and check it out if you want. … [Click here to read the rest.]

    Artfully written! I love finding Jesus even in comics 🙂 here’s another bible great buried in the lines of Spider-Man: with great power comes great responsibility. Sounds like “from those to whom much is given, much will be required” to me….

    That was a great article. I never got that much into the whole superhero genre as a kid but “Green Lantern” sounds great. Is the movie good? (I mean the one from a year or so back)

      My wife and I liked the GL movie a lot. It didn’t go as deep as the comics did (and yes comics can be quite deep), but it followed the comics mythos and told the story well. Plus, Ryan Reynolds plays a good 21st c. superhero!

    This is good ammunition for me to use with my agnostic, super hero loving brother-in-law. He loves the Green Lantern.

      If you want to be really well-armed, Aimee, read the Wikipedia article on Green Lantern and then ask him which earth-based GL is his favorite. Most people (like me) say Hal Jordan, but he might be impressed that you know something about the others.

      Please let me know if you do have that conversation, too. I’d love to hear how that went!

    Hi Tim, I’m afraid my superhero knowledge is limited to Superman and Batman movies. However, I love the connection between our fascination with fictional superheroes who save the world and the Superhero who really did save the world. (Wrote about that a couple of months ago at: http://connectingdotstogod.com/2013/03/19/the-surprising-superhero-power-that-saved-the-world/) When God sent his Superhero Son to save our world he did not do it by fighting all the bad guys or erasing evil and corruption. Shockingly, he did it by surrendering to it all. That is a superhero plot twist that no one anticipated. Great post! Judy
