Hello Skepticoners!

We’re happy to announce a panel for this year’s virtual event. Introducing: Who Gets to Be a SuperHero?

About the panel:

“The whole point of a superhero is that they’re “super”. They are more than the rest of us somehow. Stronger, faster, better equipped, braver. What has that meant for who gets to be a superhero, and which writers and characters have challenged the limits of our imaginations?”

And our panelists:
