In case anyone hasn't yet watched the video series I recommend the Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell. It explores the "hero's journey" which has several stages.  You can find almost all elements of it in the Star Wars movies, Harry Potter, Superman, and yes, the myth of Jesus.

It's kind of strange how the movie "Man of Steel" is deliberately being marketed as some sort of parallel to Christ. They even provide a special "ministry resources" page-
