In Seagle’s and Kristiansen’s It’s a bird, Superman is used as a means to exorcise one of Seagle’s greatest personal fears: Huntington’s disease. By examining the figure of the hero and the day in his childhood in which Superman and the disease became intertwined, the author attempts to overcome trauma. In this post Esther Claudio looks at how both discourses intermingle and finally lead to the creator’s catharsis.
