Superman Is Jewish?
- How Comic Book Superheroes Came to Serve Truth, Justice, and the Jewish-American Way
- By: Harry Brod
- Narrated by: Peter Berkrot
- Length: 8 hrs and 11 mins
In Superman Is Jewish? Harry Brod reveals the links between Jews and superheroes in a penetrating investigation of iconic comic book figures. He describes how the role of each hero reflects the evolution of the Jewish place in American culture - an alien in a foreign land, like Superman; a figure plagued by guilt for not having saved his family, like Spider-Man; outsiders persecuted for being different (X-Men); a nice, smart guy afraid people won't like him when he's angry (the Hulk).
