Episode #18: Law & Order & Superheroes (When We Last Left Our Heroes)

James Daily

24-Nov-15 19:00


Reading the superhero comic requires setting aside - among many other things - notions of legal niceties. What exactly would the legal system really do with supervillains? Should a villain stay in jail for murder if the victim later comes back to life, as Ben Grimm - The Thing - did a few years back? Can the death penalty be applied to someone who’s invulnerable? Are the X-Men - who are frequently discriminated against in the Marvel Universe - due civil rights protections?

This month, on When We Last Left Our Heroes, Umapagan Ampikaipakan speaks to lawyer and author James Daily about the hypothetical legal ramifications of comic book tropes, characters, and powers. Check out James Daily's blog at http://lawandthemultiverse.com/
