What do I love about superhero comics? Well, I’m a five foot tall woman with a short temper who has always kind of looked like a child. I am RIFE with power fantasies. I also have a theater degree and an alcoholic tendency toward spectacle. What draws me to superheroes is probably the same thing that draws me to opera, melodrama, Commedia dell’Arte, Shakespeare, Greek mythology... I think it’s a lizard brain thing. Jungian archetypes in four colors. Humans crave this sort of storytelling, it’s just that as modern men and women we have a broad variety of ways in which to consume it. What draws my son to Teen Titans is the same brain-wiring that drew my grandmother to Days of Our Lives.
