Abstract
The section closes with Luis A. Grande Branger's essay on Aquaman, offering his own take on the superhero film. To him, Aquaman can be read as part of the heated discussions on race, immigration, nationalism and white supremacy. The film methaporizes anxieties and fears regarding the position of the extreme right in contemporary America, post-Donald Trump's ascension to presidency.
