The story is baked into our culture. In a time of great peril, the parents of an infant child set him adrift to keep him out of harm's way. Eventually, the baby is discovered by a different set of parents, and when he grows up, he becomes a beacon to his people, protecting them from the evil powers of the world. The only question is, are we talking about Moses or Superman? The Man of Steel is a character intrinsically rooted in the Jewish tradition, and it's not a coincidence that he's been fighting Nazis since the very beginning.
