The Psyche of Superheroes
Saturday September 9, 2023 starting 11:00 am to 11:45 am | Room: 338

How mental illness affects the creative process behind the Superhero’s journey. Bruce Banner has Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Depression have shaped the storylines of Batman and the Punisher for decades. Let’s not forget all of the neuroses of each member of the Doom Patrol. We’re all very aware of the connotations of mental illness when discussing the motives of villains in comics and movies, but what about our heroes? In this panel, Drew Edwards (HalloweenMan) and a talented group of creators discuss their personal stories and how they channel their pain and trauma into their creative process.
