In “The Effects of Superhero Sagas on Our Gendered Selves,” Elizabeth Behm-Morawitz and Hillary Pennell suggest that superheroes are most often represented across U.S. popular culture texts as “super gendered" in ways that impact how we as a culture “construct gender-related identities, attitudes, and beliefs” by affirming gender norms. While there has been much scholarly analysis of gender identity, presentation, and performance in relation to female superheroes, less critical attention has been paid to examining the cultural function of male superheroes in either affirming or challenging hegemonic masculinity.
