More About The Psychology of Superheroes by Robin S. Rosenberg; Jennifer Canzoneri
 
 
 
Overview
This latest installment in the Psychology of Popular Culture series turns its focus to superheroes. Superheroes have survived and fascinated for more than 70 years in no small part due to their psychological depth.
In The Psychology of Superheroes, almost two dozen psychologists get into the heads of today s most popular and intriguing superheroes. Why do superheroes choose to be superheroes? Where does Spider-Man s altruism come from, and what does it mean? Why is there so much prejudice against the X-Men, and how could they have responded to it, other than the way they did? Why are super-villains so aggressive? The Psychology of Superheroes answers these questions, exploring the inner workings our heroes usually only share with their therapists."
