Superheroes 2/17

No homework over break, but here’s what we did today:

Read to page 87. Use evidence from the text to answer these three questions:

1) There are three distinct groups in the story: the Justice League, led by Superman and Wonder Woman; the Outsiders led by Batman and the Green Arrow; and the Mankind Liberation Front, led by Lex Luthor. What are the goals of each group?

2) Why is there a “fear in the room” (Waid 70) after the Justice League gives a press conference at the United Nations?

3) Analyze the characters of Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman based on what we’ve seen up to page 87. What beliefs does each one hold regarding the use force to keep or make peace, and are these philosophies in conflict with one another?
