Description: Fictional superheroes shape common ideals of justice, responsibility, and moral good. This class will compare flat and dynamic superhero character arcs, find intention behind each story, and glean if our fascination with superheroes can tell us about our personal values and obsession for a society in need of simple, straightforward mending. Students will pick out aspects of various superhero mythoi from media selections and be able to outline a story arc and craft powerful character that's definitively theirs.
