ENG-223-56-2 Humanities Superheroes: an American Fantasy
3 credits  HUM (Humanities) LAC course
Superheroes are a cultural fantasy.  Since Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's creation of Superman in the 1939, Americans have had an enduring fascination with caped crusaders. In the last 15 years or so, superheroes have soared (ha!) in popularity, reaching a wider and more diverse audience through a variety of media, but especially films (The Avengers films, the original and new X-Men and Spiderman films, the abysmally bad Fantastic Four films) and television series (Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Gotham, Flash, Arrow). But what does this persistent obsession mean? Why have we loved, and why do we continue to love fantasies about super-powered individuals?

This course will follow a broad approach to studying the complex meaning of American superheroes and their stories. We will look at the history of the comic book and explore the meaning and politics of superheroes through a variety of discourses. We will examine superheroes in a range of media—film, television, serial comic books, graphic novels, and the superhero novel.
