The word “diversity” has been thrown around a lot lately in the world of superhero narratives. The last two years have featured an increased diversity in Marvel Comics’ set of characters and creative staff, with Ta-Nehisi Coates’s work on Black Panther, G. Willow Wilson’s co-creation of Ms. Marvel, the character Jane Foster being deemed worthy of Mjolnir and with it the name Thor, and Riri Williams taking over the role of Iron Man from Tony Stark. At the same time, Marvel has faced criticism for whitewashing of films such as Doctor Strange, and a refusal to increase diversity in casting with its main character taking on the white savior narrative in Iron Fist.

In American Road Narratives: Reimagining Mobility in Literature and Film (2015), Ann Brigham elaborates the identity building capacities of the road trip genre, and takes on the problem of mobility in women’s and minority writing. By challenging our privileging of mobility as a cultural mythology, Brigham complicates the required agency behind the very act of going on the road, analyzing ethnic and minority literature in light of contemporary political tensions.
