Superheroes and Sexuality
Anna Peppard, Postdoctoral Fellow from Brock University, joins us to discuss the historical controversy and contemporary relevance of superhero sexuality. Dr. Peppard will demonstrate how the simultaneous presence and absence of sexuality within superhero comics, movies, television shows, and video games is central to the superhero genre’s longevity, adaptability, and current popularity, and argue that superheroes possess a special—albeit underutilized—ability to represent diverse and potentially subversive sexual fantasies.
