Superheroes 2/16 – Starting Kingdom Come

Please read to p. 39 of Kingdom Come for tonight. You have two questions to answer:

1) Does knowing the religious connections before reading lead to a deeper understanding of the characters or conflicts?

2) In understanding the religious background of the characters and/or story, what unanswered questions are raised in the first chapter of the book?
