CAC #2: Captain America vs. Iron Man: Freedom, Security, Psychology in Marvel's Civil War and Beyond

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Marvel Comics' Civil War and the film Captain America: Civil War explore superheroes' place in a post-9/11 world where some argue that civil rights conflict with public safety. Captain America leads superheroes fighting for liberty, while Iron Man leads others concerned about national and international security-but why? Travis Langley (Captain America vs. Iron Man: Freedom, Security, Psychology), Jenna Busch (Legion of Leia), Alan Kistler (The Unofficial Spider-Man Trivia Challenge), Patrick O'Connor (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), Kathleen McClancy (Texas State University), Lara Taylor Kester (Geek Therapy), Janey Tracey (Outer Places), and Billy San Juan (The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead) discuss how character motivations on both sides of the Civil War arise from positive human qualities. Are any of them truly in the right?
