Superheroes & Philosphy

So I read part of Superheroes & Philosophy: Truth, Justice and the Socratic Way. Meh.

Its a serious, philosophical look at superheroes. But, honestly, kind of boring. Certain characters kept popping up and at times focused a little too much on the film versions which dates the material a tad bit. Plus, as always, certain superheroes just hold on interest for me so I'd skip bits like the chapter on Matt Murdoch the Daredevil.

Still... interesting with a few comic writers contributing. But definitely no a book I'd look at ever again.
