Abstract
Some decades ago, Umberto Eco, in The Myth of Superman, pointed out the paradoxical nature of the all-powerful superhero. “Superman,” Eco notes, “is practically omnipotent;” consequently “one could expect the most bewildering political, economic, and technological upheavals in the world” from Superman – or any other ‘practically’ omnipotent superhero. But no such transformations occur in the narratives.
