It is based on the very successful DC comic book mini-series KINGDOM COME by Mark Waid and Alex Ross. I think Superman is too humble to ask for things in prayer, but I think he prays by rote, and constantly, the way some of us talk to ourselves in the shower.(It is well worth mentioning that Ross contributes a number of new painted illustrations to the Maggin novel! Sales have been steady for the Maggin novelization. I started at the beginning and went straight for the jugular.Of Clark's parents, Martha is the more devout churchgoer. While growing up in Smallville, Kansas, Clark Kent attended Sunday church services at the local Methodist church with his mother, Martha Kent, every week until he was fourteen years old.These aspects of the character are not speculative, but are canonical - established by in-continuity published DC Comics.Throughout all of his incarnations, Superman has maintained his rural Midwestern Protestant upbringing, although rarely have the words "Protestant" or "Christian" been explicitly attached to his background.Superman is sometimes spoken of as being "Jewish." This may be an attempt to honor the fact that the writer and artist who created the character were Jewish.
Jonathan also raised his adopted son with staunch Protestant values, but Jonathan has never been much of a churchgoer.
I've fought against and alongside beings who call themselves "New Gods" as well as "old gods" of Greek myth . He has written two Superman novels (Last Son Of Krypton and Miracle Monday, both which are currently out of print) as well as numerous other stories, articles, interviews and projects. Bruce and Batman are both Episcopalian and I said so in the text though it was edited out erroneously. Superman is something else, but I never did buy all that Kryptonian "Great Rao" nonsense.
One of his most recent publications is the novel KINGDOM COME (which is available through Warner Books) which came out in February 1998. It's part of the process of getting to know a character well enough to write about him or her. I do think Superman essentially adheres to a kind of interplanetary-oriented Kryptonian-based belief system centered on monotheistic philosophy, and I've got some ideas about it that I haven't yet articulated other than as backstory.
It is over one hundred thousand words full of action, characterization, and plot sculpting. Instead of Superman's rocket ship crash landing in the wheat fields of Kansas, Superman: Red Son details his landing on a Soviet collective farm somewhere in Ukraine.
Instead of being , he is raised during the cold war with an appreciation for Karl Marx and a devotion to Comrade Stalin.
