Battlefield executions by superheroes: legality and utility examined.

Started by Stephen Alexander. Last reply by Stephen Alexander Jun 29, 2018. 2 Replies

Recently, I was inspired by some projects at Graphic Justice and the blog Law and the Multiverse. I decided to take a look at an aspect of superhero literature that often gets ignored or short-shrift: the battlefield execution. Is it 'legal' for…Continue

Oh yes, I realize that the market is driven by hormone-laden teen boys. (LOL) And the bottom line is that sex sells.

But some of us women collected comics back in the day. (Unfortunately I lost 3/4 my collection due to a broken water pipe in my house.) There is a market. Perhaps small, but it's there.

Ruth,

I can dig it. I know what you are saying here but the thing I try and tell people who have that gripe is this...Superman and Batman are physical specimens. There bodies appear the way they do because superheroes are basically pop culture knock offs of The Greek Gods. The Greeks valued the art of the physical body and it's ability to perform certain skillful actions. If you look at popular athletes...they all have finely tuned and sculpted bodies that enable them to excel at their given trade. If we suspend disbelief long enough to accept the fact that superheroes can exist then we would have to postulate that they are the peak of physical perfection. Nobody would believe or be interested in Superman if he was overweight or had asthma...not because it's not interesting but because it kind of dampens the escapism element inherent in superhero storytelling. I use Serena Williams as a great example of a current female athlete that has a real life exaggerated physique that reminds you of a superhero. She's muscular, with a big chest, thin waist and large derriere. She's larger than life and no doubt that physique has enabled her to become the elite athlete that she is. I think the same thing would be true for female superheroes. If the guys have perfect bodies in the comics then so will the girls. I think that you see more flesh when it comes to women because of the difference in clothing and fashion. Also...unfortunately, most comic book writers and artists that control the industry right now are males and they cater to a predominantly male audience...and sex sells...it always will. I think women writers and and artists need to step up as well and start creating their own characters so we can see the female superhero from a different angle. I know that I have already begun plans to do my own black female super heroine who is an amalgam of Super Girl/Wonder Woman/ Pam Grier called Sophisticated Lady. When it's released...you will see that she is strong, powerful and pleasing to the eye...but she is not to be trifled with. SHE is a real SUPERHERO. To me...that's the point of a superhero...they are SENSATIONAL.

Thank you for inviting me!

My own opinions are focused on the art used in mass market comics. Too sexualized and unrealistic. I hate the way that women are portrayed, even when they're strong women, it's all B&B (boobs and butts). I personally prefer a more stark, less sensationalized style. But that's just me...

Musings?

Posted by Kwesi Adebisi on January 23, 2019 at 8:28am 0 Comments

As I was saying, I am currently realm-building. The task is to include elements of classical fantasy, but remain primarily sci-fi, specifically cyberpunk. There will be multiple planets/dimensions, and the general populace will be humans with enhancements (some without). The enhancements will include cybernetics, biological experiments, and even some mystical attainments. Again, I'm paring down the details, but the majority of the details are worked out. One main character has been confined for hundreds of years by his rival. Neither can die, and the one confined is found to be simply allowing the circumstance while gathering energy and awaiting certain events before acting.

My main distraction is the fact that I'm about to be released from prison this year. I'm at a work-release center now, and have limited access to the computer. Not to mention no spare time to get down and hash out more details. I have to obtain employment and whatnot while I'm here. Arg. Patience…

I would give an intricate, wordy introduction, but there are some hinderances. I am currently realm-building for a debut series, but life has a way of taking priority. One day, I will have the availability I need. My next one will be more detailed, rest assured.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
