Uhm, the only thing that really comes to mind (and you may have this covered in the Krypton book) is that Siegel and Schuster were both Jewish. IIRC, some of Siegel's personal experiences were the inspiration for Superman.

Also, not sure who created the DC character Ragman, but that was rooted in/inspired by the Jewish mythology of the golem.

Thanks for commenting.

I did know they're Jewish, but I'm intrigued by the idea that there were personal experiences that inspired Superman. Several of my books are waiting for me at the library. I hope to go tomorrow.
