State of the RE: Union - Comics - With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
Airs Monday, November 5 at 8:00 p.m. In this episode we explore a community where when evil rears its head, someone finds a way to set things right, even if they have to make sacrifices and defy the laws of our universe to do it. In this hour we tell the stories of real-life battles between good and evil in the world of comic books, where underdogs often come out on top and fantasy merges with reality. From creators and whistle blowers to real-life superheroes who've brought comics to life, putting on their own capes and costumes to fight for justice in their cities. The episode kicks off with host Al Letson talking about his secret ‘nerdy’ side. Then, a passionate Superman fan gets taken advantage of, and the comics community pitches in to help. Comics Alliance editor Laura Hudson causes an uproar in the comics community over an editorial about the portrayal of women in comics. Then, Cowabunga Dude! We visit the town that birthed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
A letter from an unlikely comic book fan. We learn about Cosplay, then meet a man who transformed himself into a superhero. Finally, an emotional story about a boy’s wish to become a superhero.
