Knockabout fun or antidote to human powerlessness in an age of technology?

Let us consider the changing face of superhero comics. As Grant Morrison observes in Supergods, his book-length analysis of the superhero phenomenon, the idea of these characters has long been “at least as real as the idea of God”.

Like the idea of God, the idea of superheroes has changed with the times, subject to canonical revision, radical exegesis and acrimonious debate. Find out more in the video, a 6-min interview with Grant Morrison.
