With a view to exploring the relationship between DC Comics’ Superman’s engagement with posthumanism and science fiction, as well as posthumanism and planetarity, this paper will provide an analysis of various xenological aspects of the character, as an uncanny alien, in order to explore a range of conclusions that can be drawn from my central hypothesis that Superman is a character that is simultaneously a representation of onto-existential familiarity as well as Otherness and power that ultimately disrupts anthropocentric and geocentric frames of reference.
