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.

The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name."

Presentations can explore any popular manifestations of empires, and diverse methodologies and systems of inquiry are welcomed. Some ideas for presentations [this list should not be seen as limiting]:
In an unpublished foreword to The Preserving Machine, Philip K. Dick lamented that "As a writer builds up a novel-length piece it slowly begins to imprison him, to take away his freedom." Dick, who has published five volumes of short fiction, argued that short-story writing allows for freedom, crisis, and action, in contrast to the stultifying process of novel writing. "It is in SF stories," he claimed, "that SF action occurs."
