Over the last several years, scholars have demonstrated the saliency of popular culture as a site for the academic study of religion, in areas including video games, science fiction, film, and comics. The study of religion and comics is flourishing with several monographs, edited volumes, and articles having come out in the last several years. As of yet, there has not been any sustained focus and investigation of the religion and theology in the DC Universe. The DC Universe is particularly rich for such work, given the important role DC Comics played in the development of the superhero. Characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman have become key threads in the tapestry of the American mythos, and stories set within the shared universe of DC characters have explored questions of death, rebirth, the apocalypse, the nature of evil, the origins of the universe, and the destiny of humankind.

We are inviting submissions for a peer-reviewed volume on Religion and Theology in the DC Universeinviting submissions...
