    Hello ,

    Ok , who’s got what on Joseph Campbell and the Marvel Universe ?

    #73380

    Good question!

    I notice there’s a lot in JCF’s Campbell in Culture database referencing the DC Universe – no surprise, considering in the film Batman vs. Superman, Wonder Woman’s sword had a quote from Campbell’s Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine inscribed on her sword (in ancient Greek), while Superman’s cape was embroidered with a quote in Kryptonian from The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

    However, I see nothing in the database referring to Marvel films, though there seems no dearth of Joe in the Marvel Universe – plenty of material on the internet, from film critics and fans alike, identifying elements of the hero’s journey in films from Ironman to Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther, and various chapters of the Avengers saga. Time and again individual superheroes are clearly following the trajectory of the hero’s journey – but I believe the overarching saga of the Avengers and their allies across multiple movies present us with a collective hero following that trajectory.
