Welcome, superhero geeks, philosophers, and thinkers of all types! Here you’ll find musings, arguments, screeds, shouts, investigations, and other kinds of scribblings about all things related to superheroes, comic books, politics, and philosophy.
This site began as a supplement to my book about superheroes and politics, Titans: How Superheroes Can Help Us Make Sense of A Polarized World (written with contributing author Corey Latta), which will be available from Wipf & Stock publishers later this year.
Even though this site will sometimes deal with philosophy and politics, it will never descend into the mire of partisanship and ad hominem attacks that characterizes so much political discussion. In fact, one of the main inspirations for the book is just how deeply polarized our politics and public life has become. Here I hope that you’ll find thoughtful analysis and cool musings on why superheroes matter to our culture.
