In this unit study Author Sandra Wilson examines brief glimpses into history to show why superheroes were created. Topics include:


The Great Depression

Hitler and WWII

Fears of the Fifties and the Cold War

Cuban Missile Crisis

The Vietnam War

Civil unrest

The Sixties family structure


A new generation of superhero fans


There is a lot of tidbits of information introduced here and I hope students find something interesting enough to study it further. And if they don’t, I hope they have a fun run through of history through the eyes of our superheroes.
