Sample text

His most conclusive evidence that they were homosexual lovers was their very names, Bruce and Dick. I can’t help but wonder what he would have said about the presidential ticket of Bush and Dick in 2000? Weirdest of all, Wertham claimed that comic books caused asthma. This, of course, was logical because children were staying indoors to read them instead of playing outside in the fresh air. By 1955, towns and cities across America like Jersey City and St. Louis were organizing comic book burnings.

Wertham referred to in his book as “The Human Torture”). Batman had no superpowers. His greatest superpower was his humanity. His origin story was utterly primal. It transcended cultures, languages, and borders, generation after generation. I mean, his mom and dad get shot dead right in front of his eyes! Over their bodies, in the belief that one person can make a difference, Bruce Wayne sacrifices his childhood and swears to get the guy who did this . . to get ALL the bad guys. When the bat flies through his open window and he sees it as an omen, becoming a human bat in the process, it’s all so powerful!

Wertham, comic books CAUSE juvenile delinquency. I wonder what would have happened if he had instead asked the boys if they had ever eaten a pickle? Wertham’s claims grew into even more remarkable pronouncements: Girls who read Wonder Woman were doomed to become lesbians. And boys who read the adventures of Batman and Robin all knew what Wertham referred to as Batman and Robin’s “dirty secret”. . that the Dynamic Duo— the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder—were homosexuals. The secret clues were all right there in the panels of the comic books!
