This collection analyzes the many ways in which comic book and film superheroes have been revised or rewritten in response to changes in real-world politics, social mores, and popular culture. Among many topics covered are the jingoistic origin of Captain America in the wake of the McCarthy hearings, the post - World War II fantasy-feminist role of Wonder Woman, and the Nietzschean influences on the ""sidekick revolt"" in the 2004 film ""The Incredibles"".
