The author of that first “Superman” email follows-up: “I’m still going to see it, but am disappointed in advance. As for artistic license, if Brian really wanted controversy he would make superman black or jewish, or both. I will spare you all the If superman were black jokes.”
The reader, who happens to be black, misses the real missed opportunity. What if Superman were an Arab Muslim? It would certainly put a new gloss on Jihad.
