So, I had a video picked out that questioned whether or not Captain Marvel, Marvel’s current version, was really a hero. It was an interesting idea, but it didn’t quite work for me. The video gave two examples of Carol Danvers being problematic, and one of them wasn’t a very good example. Plus, the channel seemed to be there to teach something called “economic freedom” or something. So, yeah, maybe I won’t be putting that one up.
But in the meantime, here’s YouTube personality Kyle Kallgren looking at Superman.
Can we relate to Superman? Is he an Ubermensch? What does he represent? Where does his goodness come from? Kallgren attempts to answer these questions, and I generally like his work. See below what he has to say.
