His “journey” with the Rocket Boys left an inerasable sign on each person in his community, his family (although it took him so long to understand how his father loved him for being what he was, without a touch or a word). His tale is a tale of resolution, of standing tall for your dreams, but also a story or reconciliation, which turned to be one of the most difficult things in his life.

Throughout the essay Sherman Alexie uses an extended metaphor to describe the connection he has with Superman. Superman and Alexie both save lives even though they have different methods. “I am trying to save our lives.” Sherman Alexie tries to save people’s lives with books and knowledge. “One failure and you forget all the good I’ve done.” Superman constantly saves lives by using his powers.

While his generals and senior advisors were telling him to plan a full-scale raid of the island and while it is underway they all would slip away to the safety of their nuclear bunkers. John Kennedy said no and that if anyone were to die today it were to be them sitting as they were in the white house, the prime targets of those Russian nuclear missiles.
