Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight; The Joker Psychology: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them) conducts a forensic investigation fitting together the three overlapping yet different accounts Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger, and Bob Kane gave regarding how they created the Clown Prince of Crime. Amy DeSuza-Riehm (California State University, Long Beach) takes a look at Jessica Jones, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, the role of trauma in superhero origins, and the psychology of Heroes in Crisis. Kyle A. Hammonds (University of Oklahoma) and Garrett Hammonds (American Choral Directors Association) use "The Anatomy Lesson" to show how Alan Moore's seminal run on Saga of the Swamp Thing reflects broad cultural issues which Moore uniquely addressed in the context of horror.
