Abstract
William Proctor examines the phenomenon of the reboot in superhero narratives through the prism of adaptation studies. Tapping into recent reboots, Proctor argues that adaptation is a complex matrix of interaction and interrelation between multiplicities of texts where ideals of “beginning” and “end” have no place; as he posits, “A reboot is a brand-new product; yet it is already old”.
