In the heroine’s journey, the young woman protagonist confronts her dark side and emerges stronger. This quest is a recurring theme in comic books and their screen adaptations. Batgirl, Wonder Woman and Black Widow each find their greatest enemy is their dark mother or shadow twin—the savagery they’ve rejected in themselves. Supergirl, in her latest television incarnation, strives to restore her bonds with her sister. This book explores the popular mythos of comics heroines like Jessica Jones, Catwoman, Harley Quinn and the new superwomen of webcomics, who all endure great personal struggle or sacrifice before emerging as female warrior-saviors.

“Frankel uses myth the way it was meant to be used, to help people understand how their lives fit into a larger world. She offers great depth of analysis in understanding how the mythic characters of comics utilize the standard mythic tropes. This is a must-have.”–Matthew Wilhelm Kapell, Exploring the Next Frontier: Vietnam, NASA, Star Trek and Utopia in 1960s and 1970s American Myth and History.

The Mockeries of the Galaxy: The Unauthorized Parody of The Guardians of the Galaxy

March 2017

Everyone in the galaxy wants the Plot Device…especially the looming orange supervillain Big Vicious Dude, Lord of All the Galactic Places He Feels Like and his Vice Lord Whinin the Finger Pointer. Clearly, the galaxy needs a hero! Too bad all they’ve got is man-child Quitter Pill, Grapesoda the space babe, Bunny Foofoo, Dweeb the world’s biggest raspberry gumball, and a treelike creature who keeps saying “I am Grout.” Together they’re the Mockeries of the Galaxy, and they’ll save everyone, no matter the cost…as long as it’s not their collectables.

The Avengers Face Their Dark Sides: Mastering the Myth-Making behind the Marvel Superheroes  Kindle April 2015.

The Avengers franchise has slammed off the charts, with brave, clever characters embarking on amazing adventures. But what fuels their fire? Tony Stark’s obsession with fast cars and fast women conceals a deep quest for purpose. When he witnesses that his weapons have murdered innocent families, his heart literally shatters – he builds himself the new heart of a hero. Captain America’s weakness is weakness itself, as Steve Rogers transforms into an outer self that matches the inner, a change mirrored in the heart of every kid beaten up on the playground. Rage rules the Hulk, though it’s also his greatest strength when mastered. The Avengers, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Guardians of the Galaxy find family that complete them, while Daredevil reconciles his split, even contradictory personality. Each hero battles his dark side, appearing as Loki, Red Skull, Kingpin, and other subconscious shadows. Thus, the hero conquers his doubts and harnesses might beyond his gauntlets or guns…he becomes a superhero. With easter eggs, interviews, and comic history, there’s treats for all the Marvel fans.

Inside the Captain Marvel Film: The Comics, the Symbols, the Feminism…and Easter Eggs Too

March 2019.
In the comics, seven distinct characters were called Captain Marvel, while Carol Danvers began as Mar-Vell’s rather helpless assistant, relaunched herself as Ms. Marvel with superpowers and a forty-year Avengers career, and finally achieved captaincy. The film gleefully nods to the past characters (including Shazam!) and storylines. It builds on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from the earliest days of S.H.I.E.L.D. to Guardians of the Galaxy. Meanwhile, subtle moments shatter glass ceilings in a way Wonder Woman with her skimpy uniform, all-male team, and conventional romance does not. Captain Marvel’s awesome powerhouse moments, like trouncing all the villains to “Just a Girl,” made the audiences cheer. More subtly, she’s embarking on the classic heroine’s journey as she defies the patriarchy and redefines herself. It’s a groundbreaking, genre-defining work of fourth wave feminism that refuses to compromise.

Empowered: The Symbolism, Feminism, and Superheroism of Wonder Woman

KindleEmpowered: The Symbolism, Feminism, and Superheroism of Wonder Woman 2015.

Wonder Woman is an icon…but an icon of what? To some, she’s Lynda Carter, spinning into star-studded shorts to save the day. To others, she’s a racy Halloween costume or inspiring feminist role model. Which is true? This book analyzes each era of Wonder Woman, from the Golden Age to George Pérez and Gail Simone’s reboots to The New 52 and television shows, cartoons, and films. Which teach the right messages for girls and boys? Which have problematic symbols? Most of all, which present an empowering female superhero and which just a fun-loving princess in an improbably clinging corset? Let’s find out.
