Disabled Superheroes in Comic Books.
Kokaska, Charles J.
Rehabilitation Literature, v45 n9-10 p286-88 Sep-Oct 1984
The author reviews the role of "superhero" in comic books, finding five prominent characters with disabilities. He suggests that sales of these comic books are due, in part, to unique gimmicks in the character, but may also reflect increased acceptance within the society of successful disabled role models.
