The Morality of Superheroes

Dr. CarrieLynn D. Reinhard contemplates the morality of superheroes in this thoughtful piece she presented at Dominican University on Nov. 6, 2014. She looks at how the technological and scientific origins of superheroes impact the characters’ moral compasses, and how they come to represent our own relationship with science and technology. If you have any interest in superheroes, this post is well worth checking out. Click here to visit Dr. Reinhard’s blog and read the post.
