The Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies seeks to publish the best of Hungarian and international scholarship in all the fields covered by English and American Studies, including but not limited to literature, history, art, philosophy, religion, and theory. Manuscripts are welcome and are subject to rigorous peer reviewing: the contribution is first reviewed by the editor; if judged to be potentially publishable, the contribution is sent to consultants for further review; once the contribution has been tentatively accepted, the HJEAS editors work with the author to prepare it for publication.

In Ang Lee's Hulk (2003), David Banner writes the line "Regeneration is Immortality" in his lab notes, identifying the inspiration for his self-transformation and the genesis of the Hulk. This line is suggestive of another transformation: adapting comic book characters with new technologies. The twenty-first century has seen resurrections of comic book characters on big and small screens, offering reflections of "timeless" characters that are newly conceived to reflect their modern worlds. These texts highlight how regeneration is central to the characters' survival.

Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name."
