Mr. Orr—the human version of God in a story examining the meaning of power, God and faith, can cure Father Leone’s cancer. This puts Daniel Leone in the classic position of Adam—tempted by the “Devil’s” cure. Only in this book, it’s not clear that Superman is an all-positive
God, or that Orr is an all-evil Devil. Orr tells Leone that Superman can cure his cancer, or Orr can.
