“In recognition that most people receive their information about the criminal justice system through media and popular culture, it seems prudent to explore the role that popular culture might have to play in the public (re)imaginings of ‘justice’. In particular, with recent research consistently demonstrating that ‘most people think that sentences imposed by the courts are too lenient’ and ‘would therefore support increasingly punitive penal policies’, this article seeks to use the lens of cultural legal studies to juxtapose vigilante superhero ‘justice’ with a popular conception of criminal sentencing.” (537)
