They reported this shortly after Superman Returns hit the screens in '06.  The Internet was also flooded with speculations and "so-called experts" explaining that Superman and all comics in general were metaphors for homosexuality and Christian beliefs.  If you want my take on the whole thing I wrote a RANT in 2007 that has links to more information on the subject.

This is very interesting topic for me. As a Superman fan I'm not really sure how I should feel when people try to draw parallels like this.  Do you think this kind of speculation is good or bad for the character? And what about all other fictional characters?  Is it necessary to look too deep into what they represent?? Please feel free to leave your take on the matter in a comment below…
