A wonderful read for lovers of Superman and also newcomers to the world of Philosophy.
The whole idea of identity and what makes someone who they are is wonderfully explained using one of the biggest and most popular fictional characters to transcend pop culture.
The book asks several questions such as what exactly is the American Way? Why does somebody who preaches tolerance, acceptance and allowing people to make their own choices, so often resort to violence and 'might is right' to force an outcome to his preference?

I highly recommend if only to break the myth that Superman is too much of a goody goody and unrelatable.

Absolutely brilliant book, although I haven't finished reading it yet. The section on Lex Luthor was particularly interesting to me. :)

Used for reference while writing my dissertation, the shadow of Nietzsche's Ubermensch stands large over a few essays, but it is interesting to see different approaches to this and particularly the essay on Lex Luthor; a very human Superman.
Recommended for those wishing to see the influence of Nietzsche et al and the issues surrounding a Superman, should one exist.
