PodCapers Ep. 29: Superheroes in History with The Bard

If one does not remember the past, one is doomed to repeat it. Something Hollywood does a lot. But not on Podcapers! Scott is joined by AP2HYC writer The Bard, as they look at superheroes throughout history. From ancient Sumerian tales to the comics code of the 1950’s, they look at the tropes and patterns of characters that we know and love, that may not be as new as we thought.
