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.

This panel explores the interconnection of avant-garde humor with forms of political action that defied conventional art and lifestyles. The significance of the comical aspect centers on a greater understanding of experimental practices as cases that unsettle the establishment. Literally meaning “advance guard” in French, the term holds a military sense that applies to artists and works characterized by their combative nature and their tendency to question the acceptability of norms and traditional aesthetic genres. Avant-garde artists made use of humor as a political weapon that destabilized the status quo by challenging bourgeois values and promoting radical reforms on a sociocultural level.
