Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

The minister pounded the lectern, his face red from exertion and righteous fury.

“He is no hero, no hero at all. He is, rather, a fallen angel.

“This business of coming to Earth in a rocket ship? Don’t you believe it! He is Lucifer himself, expelled from Heaven for presuming to be greater than God Almighty!”

A chorus of amens and hallelujahs rose from the congregation. They had always feared the stranger in red and blue; now they hated him. Soon they would bend all efforts to destroy him.

The Lexington Lutherans shouted the invocation as one: Superman must die!

[Inspired by this classic post by Mark Hoback... and by our drive through Kentucky yesterday.]

Pardon me, but, um, I thought he died long ago...

Of course I quit reading comics in the 90's so I have no clue how many times DC has killed him off since then, or if he & Lois finally got hitched, or if Lex being a Father is still part of the continuity.

Loved your story, though, anyway. ;-D
