Ever since the dawn of Marvel's "superheroes with real problems," costumed adventurers have been letting their psychological damage show. Spider-Man's guilt and insecurity, Batman's tango with trauma, Captain America's survivor's guilt, Jessica Jones's smorgasbord of symptoms, and Star-Lord's daddy issues are just some of the mental challenges that modern superheroes deal with. Dr. Travis Langley (Batman and Psychology), R. Sikoryak (Masterpiece Comics), Dr. Janina Scarlet (Superhero Therapy), Alex Langley (The Geek Handbook), and moderator Danny Fingeroth (Superman on the Couch) hold a lively discussion of the psychological challenges that many heroes (and some villains, too) deal with.
