In the past decade, heroes and villains spawned from the pages of comic books have upended popular culture and revolutionised the entertainment industry. The narratives weave together a multitude of complementary and sometimes competing storylines, spun across decades, generations, and mediums, forming a complex tapestry that simultaneously captures the imagination and captivates the mind. These stories reveal our own vulnerabilities while casting an ideal to which we aspire. They pull at our deepest emotions and push us to the cusp of reality, and bring us back to Earth with a renewed hope of a better tomorrow. They are an endless source of powerful metaphors to help us learn and develop, then be the best versions of ourselves possible.

 

Through the lens of the superhero genre, each chapter explores contemporary challenges in leadership, team building, and conflict, while emphasising the role of humanity and human nature in our own world.
