On the surface, both the X-Men and Superman films push a message of hope over fear, but what deeper instinctive fear could there be than that of being genetically supplanted? ::: Click here to read the full text.
Just wanted to say that i enjoyed your articlle immensely. Your writing has great flow and wit (i laughed out loud w/ 'ubermench from the stars'). I was wondering if you noticed a 'vegetarian/environmentally friendly' motiff in the movie. Superman's kid is sick w/ asthma (presumably cause mom smokes, dad feeds him beef, he plays indoors), whereas superman spent his younger years healthy and vigorous -running through corn fields - and as an adult is basically a buddhist monk meditating on a mountaintop without the mountain.
Also interesting i thought was the way conventional 'modern medicine' is portrayed - defibrillation will actually kill you if youre not careful. (im a resident in pediatrics at a children's hospital in ny - so the issue is close to my heart no pun intended).
Ok - i ramble. Great article!!
