The article The Man Who Changed Comic Books Forever written by Greg Bjerg tells us how one man particularly changed comics forever. Greg acknowledges credit for making comics unsuccessful to the German immigrant psychiatrist Dr. Frederic Wertham. Mr. Wertham wrote a book claiming that "Batman and Robin were “a wish dream of two homosexuals living together” and that Wonder Woman was a “lesbian counterpart of Batman”." He was critical of Superman for giving kids the idea that they could fly. This relates to my essay because I am writing about how comic books have changed throughout the years, and this shows why some superheroes powers have changed throughout the years.

  1. Sounds interesting. Wertham was definitely a jerk :-)

    But based on your summary, I don't see how this article would help in discussing changing superpowers. And proofread a little closer.
