Description
"Marvel is famous for their fantastic superheroes. Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man and dozens of other costumed avengers from the Marvel Universe are recognized the world over. In the 21st Century, Marvel has expanded just what it means to be a superhero, and who can wear the tights. Panthers, Hulks & Ironhearts explores the importance of ethnicity in many of Marvel's newest heroes (and a few of their oldest) in the comics, movies, and on television. New characters of color like the Pakistani-American Ms. Marvel, the Latina Ms. America, the Korean-American Hulk and Silk, as well as new takes on old heroes such as the African American versions of Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man, have joined such landmark heroes as Black Panther and Luke Cage to diversify the role of superhero. These "All New, All Different" heroes can defeat super villains, but they can also help explain important cultural concepts like stereotyping, Orientalism, repatriation, whitewashing, and identification"--
