In episode 4 of The Fearless Show we discuss if comic books have supplanted traditional mythology as THE mythology that will be best known for generations to come and touch on Nike and Airbnb making moves in design.
Over the decades comic books have matured and developed into true mythology with their heroes (and antiheroes), villians, and extraordinary tales that both teach and reflect the true nature of the world. Their stories have become more complex and layered, and a massive, rich universe has developed from them thanks to the likes of Jim Lee and Jack Kirby. Superman, Batman, and Spiderman stand as beacons of our morals and virtues; and their incredible tales and origins are what we'll be passing on to our next generation. So move over Zeus, Hercules, Odysseus; there are new gods atop Mount Olympus.
