Superheroes Decoded (History) – Premieres 30th April – Miniseries
A 2 part miniseries that documents the impact the creation of superheroes had on American culture. The first part looks into how the birth of superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Spiderman were linked to the public attitude of the time.
In it, along with the regulation interview with Stan Lee, various comic book writers and enthusiasts talk about how the characters reflected the time that they were in, and how they have been continually changed to fit and reflect the social and political backgrounds of the time.
For a documentary about comic book superheroes it’s surprisingly dull and a bit of a slog to get through.
