Where Did Superman’s White Hat Go? Villainy and Heroism in SUPERMAN: RED SON

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A close reading of Mark Millar's 3-part graphic novel RED SON, focusing on the cultural and especially political-economic history it engages. Specifically, I read Millar's transformation and complication of conventional depictions villainy and heroism through his narrative and iconographic representations of the characters in the Superman universe reimagined as Cold-War era Russians. This essay expands my analyses of visual media in terms of the political-economic histories they engage into another area of popular culture.
