Superheroes saved my life. No, Batman didn’t swoop in on a cable, nor did Deadpool kneecap a crook on my behalf, but a few special women have nonetheless given me a second shot at living on my own terms. Without their wisdom, filtered through page and screen to a wide-eyed black girl in the Midwest, I know my life…

Can you hate a movie but love its characters, or does a bad cinematic experience poison you against them? Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was a massive disappointment for me, but damn if I don’t adore DC Films’ Superman and Armored Batman figures.
I’ve been listening to John Williams’ soundtrack for the old Superman film a lot, ever since I wrote this post about a mash-up video for Kal-El’s appearance on Supergirl season two. But I’ve been listening to it very differently.

Back in the mid-2000s, Grant Morrison and Frank Miller were putting their respective spins on Batman.
