Superman at 75: Who knew he was Jewish?

March 2, 2014 Cambridge

Ah, you say, the Man of Steel. I know him! But do you really? Did you know the wrenching story of his birth and nurturing at the hands of a parade of young creators yearning for their own absent fathers? Superman’s rivals also were more than they seemed and more than just fantasy: Many were real-world menaces, which made the stories timely and authentic. Superman stood up to Hitler and Stalin before America did, used his radio broadcast to expose the savagery of the Ku Klux Klan, and in his comic books he upended slumlords and wife beaters.  There is one more thing that even his most fervent fans may not know about the Man of Steel: he is Jewish.
