Superman Trailer - Christ Myth Revisited

There have been many mythical references to Superman (the comic book hero of my childhood) with Jesus Christ.  (I'm here using "myth" in the Tolkien sense that myths are stories that tell us something important and true about reality. Myths are designed not to be true in an explicit sense, but to be true in a moral and psychological sense.)

Watch the trailer for the new Superman movie MAN OF STEEL to come out this next summer. The lines that stick out which relates to Christ are toward the end. See if you catch the mythic sense of Superman as it applies to Christ.
