The Supervillain Reader

J. Richard Stevens

University Press of Mississippi

This essay follows author Cunningham’s discussion of his experience growing up an African American fan of comics who found not only a dearth of superheroes that looked like him, but also a corresponding absence of black supervillains. The distinction here between villain and supervillain, and how that distinction maps over racial representation, is particularly important.
