by Travis Smith

Book Reviews

"Every boy grows up with questions about comic books: Who's better, Batman or Superman? Who would win in a fight, Wolverine or Magneto? Travis Smith grew up and is now asking intellectually serious questions about comic books: Who is a better representative of idealism in action—Captain America or Mister Fantastic? Who better embodies the human capacity for imagination—Green Lantern or Iron Man? Travis is a nerd's nerd and Superhero Ethics is fun and engaging. If you've ever cared about comic books or superheroes, you'll love it." —Jonathan V. Last, digital editor, the Weekly Standard

"Travis Smith ably demonstrates that costumed characters have a bigger purpose in our modern world than just filling movie studios' coffers. If you look closely—and Smith really has—they can teach us plenty about right and wrong in these morally murky times." —Reed Tucker, author of Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-Year Battle Between Marvel and DC

"Superhero Ethics cleverly casts famous superheroes against each other and compares their ethics in an enlightening and enjoyable fashion, and in doing so emphasizes the true value of superheroes in society today." —Mark D. White, author of The Virtues of Captain America: Modern-Day Lessons on Character from a World War II Superhero

"Superhero Ethics reminds us to look beyond the powers of superheroes to see their important role as models of personal Superhero responsibility, accountability and integrity, of being willing to wrestle with moral and ethical issues, and to work in the service of others." —Robin S. R osenberg, author of Superhero Origins: What Makes Superheroes Tick and Why We Care
