About this item

Freedom vs. security: that is the dilemma explored in our latest entry in the pop psychology series—and two iconic superheroes come to completely opposite conclusions. This provocative collection of 11 essays, edited by acclaimed pop culture writer Travis Langley and with a foreword by the legendary Stan Lee, 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?Captain America vs. Iron Man: Freedom, Security, Psychology 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. Fans will find thought-provoking psychological material to discuss for hours.
