About Us

Superpowered Society is all about how main stream (and non-main stream) superheroes have a mutual relationship with society. While superheroes may be fictional characters, they are a reflection of the things we value in today's Modern American Culture. They impact the way we think, how we treat one another and how we see ourselves in the world.This is not about today's pop culture, but there may be references to it. Expect rhetorical analysis, sociological trends and discussing parallels of who superheroes are, what they represent and the challenges society faces when these characters become a part of everyday conversation.Perspective is key, so please participate engage and don't hesitate to share your feelings towards the topics discussed!Twitter: @SuperpoweredSocWebsite: www.superpoweredsociety.com

Power in People, Not Heroes

Failed Superhero Movie? Not quite! We dive into Robert Townsend's "The Meteor Man" and pull out how this move was ahead of its time as it was empowering, not only for communities of color, but for every community who's ever needed to know what it means to "come together".

Power in People, Not Heroes

Always Ice Skating Uphill

In this episode, we take a look at one of our favorite superheroes growing up! We look at him in a way that I never consciously thought about and are primarily looking at the film trilogy while also touching on the comic history.

A Shocking Milestone

In this episode I welcome Crunchy from the Millennial Nostalgia Berries Podcast! We cover Milestone Comics and their title characters. We discuss the impact they had on mass media comics as well as highlighting what may have been their downfall. Milestone Media changed the game on what it meant to stereotype underrepresented superheroes. They broke the status quo, they created new back stories and became leaders within the comic book industry where there was great under-representation.

The Chance to Live Forever

In this episode we travel back in time to someone who isn't regularly, if ever seen, as a superhero but everyone knows his name. While not ever seen or given the title of superhero, he is a man who's known to be invincible, a master swordsman and quite handsome!

Never Ending Civil Rights Battle

In this episode we welcome guest host, Teron Buford as we dive into a team of superheroes while also covering the villains... if you want to call them that! Civil Rights is at the core of this marginalized group, but there is so much to see in the current battle for equality and equity that we can still learn from.
