About

Herodope is an independent online publication created with one overriding concept: a love of all things superheroes (and villains!), past, present and future.

Whether that love was cultivated by an issue of Amazing Fantasy whose cover features Spider-Man swinging between buildings with a crook ensconced beneath his arm, Jean Grey screaming “I am fire and life incarnate, now and forever – I am Phoenix,” for the very first time on a page from Uncanny X-Men, Superman talking a suicidal young girl down from a ledge, or Tony Stark suiting up as Iron Man for the very first time in a cave (built with a bunch of scraps) on the big screen, you can be sure our goal is unbiased comic book, comic book movie, television and pop culture discussion, examination, exploration and commentary with whomever will listen.
