Writer Jerry Siegel had not yet found a snappy slogan to summarize the moral imperatives driving his new hero, and so the language with which he introduces the character varies slightly from issue to issue, but the concept of the “battle against oppression” quickly emerges as a constant.

For example, within the apophatic theological tradition, the concept of God is inherently deconstructive; for by asserting that God is knowable only as that which cannot be known, negative theologians undo the opposition between knowledge and faith. 6 First, I offer a brief consideration of Wonder Woman’s Amazon heritage and its implications for the character. Then I consider how her first writer, psychologist William Moulton Marston, self-consciously designed Wonder Woman to change perceptions of gender and sexuality by inverting the hierarchical oppositions of man/woman, power/ weakness, and dominance/submission.

But so does T. S. Eliot’s “The Wasteland,” and the terms of that negotiation are notoriously complex. Rejecting the traditional critical prejudice against mass cultural forms, why should we assume that comic books are always simpler than poems when it comes to processing and transforming their primary materials? Consequently, in this chapter, I do not propose to demonstrate that Superman is “really” a religious figure by performing yet another exegesis of his origin story (which I assume is familiar); nor do I attempt to claim him as a modern version of some ancient archetype by pointing out all the ways he resembles this or that character from heroic myth or folklore.
