Undead Superheroes: Gender, Identity and the End of Civilization As We Know It

This collection looks at what we might call the ‘dark’ superheroes, those that are effectively immortal but only like humanity as a source of energy, food, or violent recreation, and how they create their own unique identities and what they say about human or planetary futures. These can range from the more obvious Dracula, Morbius, Vampirella, Venom to the superhero zombies, villains that never die or are just beginning their dark trajectory (Brightburn) and series that show various hybridizations of supernatural and superhuman futures (Mutant X, Umbrella Corp, Legion, The Gifted etc.).
