EdX is a great place where you can take some fun, free classes about different subjects with some pretty smart people. One of these courses, that starts tomorrow, is this course from the Smithsonian where you can learn about superheroes.
Join the Smithsonian, and comic book industry legend Stan Lee, to explore the history of the comic book and the rise of superheroes.
The ancient gods of Egyptian, Greek and Roman myths still exist, but today, they have superpowers, human foibles and secret identities. They come from comic books and graphic novels, and have taken over pop culture on the stage, screen, video games, and animation.
From Superman® and Spider-Man®, to The Avengers® and The Hulk® and beyond, who are these heroes? And, how have they evolved from folklore and myth, across all cultures and religions?
I’ve signed up, and you should too! Click here for more information on the course.
