Have we paid any notice to the "Punch-Drunk Love as a Retelling of the Superman origin story" notions?   A twitter thread I became aware of today:


[edit]  A fan theory that's apparently at least 5 years old:   https://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/1ws7g6/pt_andersons_punch_drunk_love_is_about_superman/

[edit]  I guess the original expression of this fan theory was about 7 years ago: 
"Trying to fit in since 2017."
