Superspade!: Interrogating the Representation of Early African-American Comic Book Masculinity

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper offers a semiotic critique of three of the earliest African-American comic book heroes and the manner in which their African-American masculinity is qualified. In an analysis of the visual and textual representation of Luke Cage, The Black Panther and Black Lightning in the first few years of each title, patterns emerge that reveal lenses through which these characters are presented. Ultimately, the representation of these characters, although superheroic, is entirely consistent with the historical responses to the black masculine body.
