Are Superheroes Real Men?

In our latest media analysis we ask the question of our ever-present and super successful Superheroes – are they real men? They make up some of the most popular films of all time and there are more sequels in the planning, so they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. What do they stand for and what kind of example they set for men? What powers do they have?

How much do superhero films share in common? What should a man aspire to be to be a hero? What methods do we use to solve problems? How do they relate to the females in their films? Do they have a conscience? These are the questions as Stuart Cox rips in and provides the commentary (without Dad jokes for once).

 

Here’s the rankings showing where the big bucks were made:
