Description

Freedom vs. security: that is the dilemma explored here - and two iconic superheroes come to completely opposite conclusions. This collection of 11 provocative essays examines the complex psychological and political choices made by Captain America and Iron Man in the wake of a civil war. Why do they see things so differently? What are their motivations? Who is right? This book analyzes the polar sides of this debate - national security vs. individual freedoms - exploring how trauma shaped these heroic characters, what it takes to become a superhero and what role gender plays in one's ability to resolve conflicts, along with questions of morality, leadership and teamwork.
