Marvel Comics has an established tradition of
addressing relevant real-life issues facing the American public. With the
publication of «Civil War» (2006-2007), a seven-issue crossover
storyline spanning the Marvel universe, they focused on contemporary anxieties
such as terrorism and threats to privacy and other civil liberties. This
collection of new essays explores the «Civil War» series and its many
tie-in titles from the perspectives of history, political science, sociology,
psychology, literary criticism, law, philosophy and education. The contributors
provide a close reading of the series’ main theme–the appropriate balance
between freedom and security–and discuss how that balance affects citizenship,
race, gender and identity construction in 21st-century America.
