Following Joseph Campbell`s map, and the discussion we had in class got me wondering does a Superhero follow this path?  For they do start with a call to adventure, yet they never seem to return (truly).  As they continue to face the unknown and never stop their adventures and return home to how they once were.

  1. I think superheroes do follow the path but I think the return depends on whether or not evil can ever be destroyed. The purpose of a superhero is to combat evil and keep people safe. If there is always evil, the superheroes job can never be done. The story is in a sense ongoing. Do we want the superhero to return or do we prefer the security of the continuous superhero?
