Gender and the Superhero Narrative

Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick’s and artist Valentine De Landro’s comic Bitch Planet (2014-present) offers readers an absurd yet familiar reminder of the ways that society and state institutions continue to uphold patriarchal and racist values at the expense of women, queer folks, and communities of color, among others. Its hyperbolic investigation into the depths of patriarchy and racism draws from and expands the superhero narrative’s exploration of power and oppression.
