Super Heroes

Who’s your favorite super hero? What do you think that says about you?

Chris Gavaler has been studying comic book characters for years... both as a scholar and as a fan.

His findings show that our choice in super heroes can reveal a lot about each of us as individuals, and about our society as a whole.
