Batman has been one of the world’s most beloved superheroes since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Clad in his dark cowl and cape, he has captured the imagination of millions with his single-minded mission to create a better world for the people of Gotham City by fighting crime, making use of expert detective skills, high-tech crime-fighting gadgets, and an extensive network of sidekicks and partners. But why has this self-made hero enjoyed such enduring popularity? And why are his choices so often the subject of intense debate among his fans and philosophers alike? Batman and Ethics goes behind the mask to shed new light on the complexities and contradictions of the Dark Knight’s moral code. From the logic behind his aversion to killing to the moral status of vigilantism and his use of torture in pursuit of justice (or perhaps revenge), Batman’s ethical precepts are compelling but often inconsistent and controversial. Philosopher and pop culture expert Mark D. White uses the tools of moral philosophy to track Batman’s most striking ethical dilemmas and decisions across his most prominent storylines from the early 1970s through the launch of the New 52, and suggests how understanding the mercurial moral character of the caped crusader might help us reconcile our own. A thought-provoking and entertaining journey through four decades of Batman’s struggles and triumphs in time for the franchise’s 80th anniversary, Batman and Ethics is a perfect gateway into the complex questions of moral philosophy through a focused character study of this most famous of fictional superheroes.

 Since her first appearance in 1992, Harley Quinn—eccentric sidekick to the Joker—has captured the attention of readers like few new characters have in eight decades of Batman comics. Her bubbly yet malicious persona has earned her a loyal and growing fan base as she has crossed over into television, theater, video games, and film. In this collection of new essays, contributors explore her various iterations, focusing on her origin and contexts, the implications of her abusive relationship with the Joker, her relationships with other characters, her representations across media, and the philosophic basis of her character.

The Man who Laughs

The Man Who Laughs features one of Hugo's most compelling characters, Gwynplaine, a boy whose face has been forcibly deformed to appear as though he is always smiling. After being attacked and abandoned, Gwynplaine finds a blind, orphaned infant in the wilderness. Nearly starving himself, he carries the dying baby to a nearby shack, the home of carnival performer, Ursus, and his pet wolf, Homo.?The story continues as Ursus takes care of Gwynplaine and the baby, Dea, using Gwynplaine and his clown-like deformity in a comedic performance at fairs and carnivals to make money. Gwynplaine falls in love with Dea, and just before confessing his love, is taken away by Wapentake, a servant of Queen Anne. After an incredibly interesting series of events, Gwynplaine escapes to reunite with his family, but he may be too late.?Although one of Hugo's more obscure works, The Man Who Laughs has been alluded to in several contemporary films and writings. H.G. Wells'?The Island of Doctor Moreau refers to the novel when Moreau is explaining the nature of his crazy experiments. J.D. Salinger's Nine Stories features a short story entitled The Laughing Man featuring a disfigured character. Most notably, the appearance of the Joker from the famous Batman comics and movies was inspired by the clown-like, permanent smile of Gwynplaine. While certainly not his most famous work, Hugo's The Man Who Laughs has made a lasting impression, even over 100 years after it was written.

This cultural analysis of visual and narrative elements within Batman comics provides an important exploration of the ways readers and creators negotiate gender, identity, and sexuality in popular culture. Thematic chapters investigate how artists, writers, and fans engage with, challenge, and interpret gendered and sexual representations by focusing on one of the most popular and heated fictional rivalries ever inked: that of Batman and the Joker. The monograph provides critical insights into ways queer reading practices can open new forms of understanding that have generally remained implicit and unexplored in mainstream comics studies. This accessible and interdisciplinary approach to the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime engages diverse fields of scholarship such as Comics Studies, Critical Theory, Cultural Studies, Gender Studies, Literature, Psychoanalysis, Media Studies, and Queer Theory.
