FROM STAR WARS TO SUPERMAN
CHRIST FIGURES IN SCIENCE FICTION AND SUPERHERO FILMS. When cultures such as our toss Jesus out one door, He comes in - albeit disguised - through another. That's why author Jim Papandrea turned to "Star Wars", "Star Trek", "Batman", "Terminator", "Spider-Man", "Dr. Who", and half-a-dozen other modern shows, discovering in each one powerful images of Christ and salvation. In stories of alternative universes, people always need rescuing; somebody needs to save the day; and sometimes the whole world cries out for a savior...which is just what a hero is.
