Unmasking superhuman abilities and double lives, this analysis showcases nearly two dozen psychologists as they explore the minds of pop culture's most intriguing and daring superheroes, including Spider-Man, Batman, Superman, and the X-Men. Exposing the inner thoughts that these reclusive heroes would only dare share with trained professionals, heady experts give detailed psychoanalyses of what makes specific superheroes tick while answering such questions as "Why do superheroes choose to be superheroes?" "Why is there so much prejudice against the X-Men mutants?" "What makes Spider-Man so altruistic?" and "Why are super-villains so aggressive?" Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 260 pages, Text Only.
