The End of Superhero Comics?

In Media Res, a website devoted to scholarly discussions and dissections of media and media trends, has an Avengers themed week currently running, with various, interesting pieces on the aspects and implications of the Marvel mega-franchise. Today, they're featuring a piece by me that picks up on some ideas I first alluded to in my review last week, asking if the film's runaway success will end up having the opposite effect on the very comic books that inspired it. Jump over there and give it a read.
