Abstract
The most common ways of reading superhero comics culture as a religious/mythopoeic expression are, to date, unfortunately little more than self-serving and self-fulfilling prophecies, which thereby turn out in the end to be critically self-limiting. Supports this contention by offering a three-step progression. First considers the “up” side of the coin: promoting superhero comics culture as a modern religious/mythopoeic expression; then the “down” side of the coin: interrogating superhero comics culture as a modern religious/mythopoeic expression; lastly, the third side of the coin: constructing superhero comics culture as a modern religious/mythopoeic expression.
