Erika Rothberg (Loyola Marymount University) demonstrates the ways in which Watchmen can be used to teach introductory Foucauldian power theory to undergraduate students and keep them engaged with (instead of afraid of) critical theory. Derek Heid (Temecula Valley High School) shows how to use Dan Walsh's Garfield Minus Garfield to introduce the notion of "formalism" and literary theory in high school English classes and to demonstrate how adherence to rules and the perversion of those rules works within genre. Matthew Hoffman (Florida State University), and Sara Kolmes (Florida State University) examine the heteronormative and amatonormative shift in the transformation of Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship from platonic to romantic.
