Jennifer Henriquez (California State University–Dominguez Hills) explores how King and Hernandez's Vision emphasizes the underlying problems nondominant race groups face in integrating and upholding class structures that do not address social, civil, and economic disadvantages common to marginalized groups. Brenda Bran (California State University, Dominguez Hills) looks at Rivera and Quinones's America, examining how America disrupts the dominant white heteronormative narratives pervasive in both canonical literature and the comic industry. Salvatore Russo (Long Beach City College) argues that, despite being separated through medium and culture, Superman in Kesel and Ordway's World Without Superman and All Might in Korikoshi and Cook's My Hero Academia allow readers to explore and dispel myths associated with marginalization. Terri Fleming-Dright (California State University, Dominguez Hills) argues that the character of Amanda Waller in DC Bombshells reinforces stereotypes and tropes that surround African American women, despite being presented as a counter-narrative because of her position as the leader of the Bombshells.
