Supervillains and Philosophy features an international cabal of philosophers and comics industry professionals conspiring to reveal the dark details -- and deeper meanings -- lurking behind todays most popular comic book monsters. Whether its their moral justification for world domination or the wavering boundaries they share with the modern anti-hero, everyones favorite villains generate as much attention as their heroic counterparts. The 20 essays in this accessible book explore the nature of supervillainy, examine the boundaries of good and evil, offer helpful advice to prospective supervillains, and untangle diabolical puzzles of identity and consciousness.

All the legends are here, from Dr. Doom and the Spectre to the Joker and the Watchmen, reconsidered through the lens of classic and modern philosophy.
