Nope. He speaks the truth.

First he marries some chick thats like 25 years younger than him, then names his kid after a comic book hero. Someone needs to kick him in the nuts.

Get some background story on this first.

Nicolas Cage gives Superman's birth name to son (http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20051003/people_nm/cage_dc;_ylt=AtbMy48eG4uSKoJFdpiIPXpxFb8C;_ylu=X3o DMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl)

Since he wanted to make it on his own and not bank on his family name, Coppola, he chose to use the last name of Cage, after a comic book hero, Luke Cage.

Cage is known as an avid comic book devotee who once sold his personal collection, including a copy of Superman's 1938 pulp debut, at auction for more than $1.6 million.

That's a heck of a hobby to make 1.6 million off it.

He just flat out loves comic books and who are we to judge someone else's fanaticism? We're discussing this on a 'Chargers Website', so we should understand his zeal for his chosen hobby. :D
