In Disguised as Clark Kent, Danny Fingeroth -- a long-time executive in the comics business who wrote and edited Spider-Man as well as other famous lines for Marvel -- reflects on the phenomenon of the heavily Jewish elements that, consciously or not, went into the creation of the superhero.
Centering on questions of Jewish identity, which is historically about the push and pull toward and away from that very identity, Disguised as Clark Kent brings valuable insight into the fantasies that fuel our imaginations and entertainment industry, as well as many significant and often hidden aspects of our society.
