The Avengers Sequel Release Party


Prof. Joseph Darowski joins TME and celebrates the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron with with a discussion about the relationship between comic books and history explored in his book "Book: The Ages of the Avengers: Essays on Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Changing Times." The Avengers have always been reflective of their times, having adapted to an evolving readership to remain relevant. We examine Avengers story lines such as Civil War, and Secret Invasion, and explore how real-world events such as the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam War, the end of the Cold War, and 9/11 influenced popular entertainment in America.
