Superhero Comics

Themes in Superhero Comics

Superhero comics tend to explore a range of different issues, often pertaining to growing up and ethical questions regarding the use of power and the importance of difference. As such, there is an overlap between superhero comics and young adult fiction, even as superhero comics have also grown up since the 1980s. Through this course, we will investigate four main issues: racism and prejudice, politics, violence, and identity. Together, these themes explore the multitude of superhero comics today.
