In this current era of superhero trends in media literacies--of film, television series, toys, and comics--there are generations that are (re)connecting with new takes on hero identities and representations that go further and further into a much-needed critical understanding of justice and equity. This timely and pertinent book brings a deeper level of analysis to superheroes and offers fresh takes on the real and symbolic impact of the superhero genre on our understandings of the complex relationships in our everyday lives. Parson and Schatz edit this collection of pivotal chapters from authors in ways that direct our attention to the powerful potentials of both how superheroes aid and undermine how we understand masculinities at a time where toxic forms of identifying as male have for too long dominated politics of heroism, personhood, species, and the planet.--Johnny J. Lupinacci, Washington State University
