Henderson professor to talk heroes, superheroes at ASMSA lecture

Henderson professor to talk heroes, superheroes at ASMSA lecture

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Henderson State University psychology professor Dr. Travis Langley believes comic book superheroes have the ability to teach us about heroes in real life.

Langley will share some of his knowledge about the subject at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences and the Arts Science and Café Lecture on Thursday. He is the featured speaker at the event, which will be held at 7 p.m. at Kollective Coffee and Tea, 110 Central Ave. He will speak on “Psychology and Superheroes,” including how superheroes are good stand-ins for the study of what makes real-life heroes.

His lecture will focus on several particular superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America and Batman. He called them some of the most down-to-earth superheroes, because they don’t have superpowers. They have very human qualities that make them more relatable to real-life individual, according to Langley.
