Location: 

Online

This session will use superhero narratives to explore some positive and negative lessons in moral leadership that these stories offer us. It will also examine several broad topics in ethics through a superhero lens. For instance, was the Joker correct in The Dark Knight when he claims that our morals are really just "a bad joke dropped at the first sign of trouble"? In the last panel of Amazing Fantasy 15, which introduces us to Spider-Man, Stan Lee writes that "in this world, with great power there must also come--great responsibility!" What is the exact link between the two? These...
