Was Superman influenced by the myths of Horus?

Ancient Egypt has made numerous contributions to human civilization, including the pyramids, the mummification process, the production of papyri, as well as art and architecture. Few, however, would ever guess that one of the modern world’s most recognizable heroes may owe his existence to the ancient Egyptians. It has been claimed that DC Comic’s Superman was actually influenced by the Egyptian falcon-headed god, Horus, or as the supporters of this claim call him, Heru.
