What Makes a Superhero Workshop
In this workshop you’ll consider all the dimensions that make up a person and engaging characters: biology, culture, personality, gender, sexuality, and drives. Considering all these parts of the human experience, you’ll be able to create your own compelling characters.

About the event
Do you want to understand the motivation behind people’s behaviors and emotions? Do you want to develop sympathetic and interesting comic book characters?
Throughout the workshop I’ll be going over foundational psychology material found in superhero comic arcs.
During this workshop you will
- watch a lecture series covering psychological theories and connecting them to stories
- complete case study activities analyzing characters and situations from comic book storylines
- choose a character to study independently
- create your own character to share with others
After this workshop you will be able to
- see someone’s behaviors or your own and come to educated conclusions about the factors or reasons behind those behaviors
- independently dissect characters not covered in this course and why people enjoy or relate to those characters, and why the character behaves the way they do
- create original characters that are relatable and dynamic, and realistic stories for those characters
