Ralph’s contributes to the podcast “Fortress of Solitude: The Loneliness of Superheroe‪s‬”

They needed some input on comics, so they called up the King. Hear Ralph’s input at about the 5:00 mark!

Superheroes can save us from many things including annihilation, evil, mutant viruses, and mad geniuses. But perhaps the most important one is these characters have something to teach us about loneliness. Almost all origin stories of superheroes begin with intense isolation, abandonment, and solitude. Why do so many superheroes long to not have their superpowers and how did their time alone help them understand their purpose towards themselves and to others, the people they’re supposed to help. From Fortress of Solitudes to Batcaves, take a leap this week into the pages of comic books and lonely superheroes.
