Since the first Iron Man film in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continually branched out to cover more and more ground.

Even though film critics and news outlets have begun to wonder when ‘super hero fatigue’ will strike what can be seen as an oversaturated market, the box office of recent films such as Captain America: Civil War (2016) indicates no such waning of audience interest. This issue of gender forum concerns itself with the representation of super heroes in both film and television.

In the final century of the millennia, many authors and artists responded to World War I and II through representations of transformed or damaged landscapes and environments. The post-war British landscape, for example, is mainly stamped by the dark depictions of T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land, D. H.
