"It's a bird, it's a plane."

No, it's just the Kohen Gadol, ordinary mortal but super-hero, nonetheless, serving G-d in the Holy Temple.


With the powers vested in his priestly vestments, the integrity which fills his heart and his unfettered love for his brethren and for all humanity, the kohen serving beside the altar in the Holy Temple is the embodiment of every virtue and act of courage portrayed by modern fictional super heroes.
