Secret Origin

Welcome to SUPERHERO RHETORIC FORTRESS OF BLOGITUDE, the official website for Professor Shaun Treat’s COM 4849 Mythic Rhetoric of the American Superhero course blog.

Offered at the University of North Texas by the Dept. of Communication Studies in the Spring of 2010, the course explores comic superheroes as a rhetoric of American exceptionalism, Capitalist commodity, and unique allegorical expression of America’s identity and cultural unconscious.


  1. Nice blog! I’m a comics professor/advisor too and like your blog.
