Brenda Bran (CSU Dominguez Hills) uses intersectional theory to examine the [re]oppression of indigenous figures like Scrapps in Tom King's The Omega Men. Terri Fleming-Dright (CSU Dominguez Hills) argues that Joëlle Jones' Lady Killer, a third-wave feminist text, creates agency through contradiction to allow women to better understand and develop their own distinct identities, diversity, and feminism. Salvatore (Tory) Russo (CSU Dominguez Hills) examines the "chosen child concept" in Kyle Higgins' Power Rangers, asking how such children sacrifice their innocence to save the world-and what happens when they are no longer heroes and have to integrate back into mundane society. Jennifer Henriquez (CSU Dominguez Hills) examines the extraordinary social and racial burdens placed on minority "chosen children" in Monstress and Ms. Marvel.
