Description/Abstract

We are examining the roles of women in comic book pop culture. Our main focuses on Storm, Rogue, and Ms. Marvel will address constrains of social constructs, gender equality, and gender representation throughout the industry. We applied the ideals of gender, specifically feminist theory, queer theory, and monster theory to the different heroines to determine the changes in how they were viewed in comparison to now.
