9/11 had a profound effect on America and the world. It left deep scars on the New York skyline and our collective psyche. And few things show how much we changed more accurately than the stories of our superheroes. In the past decade, superhero stories have regained national prominence. Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, and countless others are everywhere you look: in books, comics, movies, and even in musicals. But while they have the same names and uniforms as before, they are very different. They have been changed by the terrible events of September 11. They are darker, more uncertain, more fallible and flawed, and more realistic than ever before. But perhaps the most interesting thing is what those changes say about us. In The Superhero Response, author Jeffery Moulton explores how the terrorist attacks changed our superheroes and what those changes say about life in post-9/11 America. Filled with engaging analysis and thought-provoking questions, The Superhero Response is sure to fascinate die-hard fans and casual readers alike.
