Superman the saviour

I wrote about Superman back on 26 November 2005. Now that the new film, Superman Returns is about to screen, it is time for another write up.

If you watch the teaser trailer from the film website, Jor-El (the father of Kal-El/Superman/Clark Kent) says:
Even though you've been raised as a human being, you are not one of them...
They can be a great people, Kal-El, they wish to be.
They only lack the light to show the way
For this reason, above all, their capacity for good,
I have sent you, my only son.

This certainly alludes to Superman as a Christ-like figure.

Christian church groups had a lot to say about Narnia. They seem to be silent about Superman.

My human was back at work today, even though he really should have stayed at home with me.

Emily came over tonight for Prison Break and a dinner of green curry (pork and eggplant/aubergine). I didn't feel like eating much even though my human did poach me some fresh Atlantic salmon. Just one of those days. I did get a lot of lap time with Emily though.

Poached salmon; how lovely! I hope you feel better soon, but with meals like that you can't help but get well.

Thanks Molly. This morning I had my usual cooked chicken. And also for dinner.

Yum! Gracie has been under the weather with an upper respiratory infection, so she got some cooked chicken with tuna juice on it so that she would eat. She thought that was pretty special and perked right up; I guess the right food is all we need sometimes!

Poor Gracie, I hope she is feeling better. Ham is also a great perker...
