Jewish superheroes

for iwoolf

I always thought Superman was meant to be the quintessential Jewish superhero, but apparently the Jewish communities haven't had superheroes to call their own.

Until now...

Hee!! Minyan Man!! Hilarious!!

There was always Uber-Mensch! Sadly the writers of Superman sold all the rights and saw very little of the franchise profits. With a secret name like Kal-el, and the circumscision visible through the tights, it was a bit of a give-away.

Looking over the pages, I'm still not sure what the Jewish values are, other than keeping the traditions and respect for human rights.

Its funny, Peter Parker didn't look Jewish...
