Abstract
The article reports on how the United States comic book industry addressed social and political issues in its narratives through the years. The industry has provided varying approaches to issues including alcohol abuse, racism, environmental devastation, gun control and poverty. The cultural attitudes and philosophies which influenced public culture have been continually explored by industry leaders like DC and Marvel Comics, to understand the complexities of gay identity and antigay hate crimes. These leaders have introduced gay and lesbian characters in their comic books, an example is the Green Lantern hate crime story line which received attention in a wide range of media outlets in the United States.
