Wow - first the Green Power Ranger, now The Thing. My son will be absolutely beside himself with glee!

Correct, I was tossing and turning about that last night. "Not backwards! Sideways!"

I was a rabid Marvel fan as a kid and the FF was always my favorite book. I did find this pretty cool when I heard about it. But it's a pretty blatant retcon, as there was no hint at this for the first 40 or so years of the character's existence.

I wrote several articles about a DC alternate Earth where many superheros were Jewish (called 'Earth-Frum') on my livejournal. See here, here, and here.

Attila,

I can buy that.

Mirty,

Kimvah is similar to mikvah,it is not exactly a palindrome.

TRN,

Sure.

Amishav,

The Thing is pretty cool.

That is so unbelievably cool! My little boy loves "The Thing!" He's got the big orange fists and everthing. I can't wait to tell him. Thank you so much for posting that! Now, if we could just get him to kick the living s@#% out of the people who created American Idol? That is one funeral I'd love to attend.

I too have always thought Superman to be Jewish.

As an extra in second movie insisted, "Of COURSE he's Jewish!"

2006-04-27T14:59:00.000-07:00

I always did think Superman was Jewish. Lois Lane too. There's even an issue where she goes to bathe in a ritual "Kimvah". Get it? Mikvah backwards.

2006-04-27T13:05:00.000-07:00

Jack, that link is fulla bunk. Superman is Jewish, as my buddies and I wrote during slow moments at Hebrew School several decades ago.

See also this.

Siegel and Shuster were obviously making him their fantasy alter ego.

In addition, "Kal-el" is a corruption of Kol-el, voice of God.

I don't buy any of that stuff from the later comics. Only original intent here.
