Supergods …

I would like to talk about the book Supergods by Grant Morrison, an analysis of comics and their journey to today. Morrison started with an introduction that summarized his perception of his home and current trends. This gave me a glimpse into the mind of a child, far away in a place I have never been and in a time before men in tights came into the public eye. Superman was a god, Zeus-like in stature, with the morals of a saint. He was a superpower: a necessary component of the world in times of war and peace. Soon after came a rival whose power was quite different. Batman saw a society that often hurts the ones it was made to protect. Having suffered at a young age, Batman honed his skills and stalked in the shadows of Gotham’s underbelly to preach justice with a vigilante’s vocabulary of “Biff Bang Pow.”

Morrison discusses the design of the characters, their creators, comics as media at the time, perspectives in societies, and cultures. Some great characters and dynamics came soon after but they were watered down by an explosion in the supply of heroes, many of which were unprofessional compared to our heroes now. With many new ideas, not many panned out. After a fizzle, they’ve reappeared, and comics have come back with more gusto than ever! We see science-fiction-like scenarios with our favourite 8-heads-tall heroes placed in the centre to explore the dynamics of anything from ‘social inequalities’ to ‘infinite earths’.

Thank you for your time and please continue to support the arts.
