Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's a Superhero! - en uppsats om superhjältefilmer efter 9/11


  • Erik Bjärtorp

Summary, in English

The superhero was created during the great depression. Their adventures captivated their young readers and it was not long until they found their way into other media.

I have noticed that during the last ten years there has been an increase of the production of superhero movies. I will during my essay bring up major events that have had an impact on the movie industry and analyze what different superhero movies say about the time they were produced.
