Secret Identities in the Age of Social Media

God and Comics

Since the beginning, superheroes have had secret identities, but in an era when everyone has a camera on their phone that is becoming less and less plausible. On this final episode of Season 2 of God and Comics, the crew talks about the function of secret identities in superhero stories, why they are less popular today than they once were, and what they tell us about who we really are. Some technical difficulties cut short “This or That” in this episode, but we make up for it with a brief outtake at the end. Plus our recommendation and a whole lot more!
