Welcome to day 12 of [community profile] scans_daily's 30 Days of Winter celebration! Today's theme is deconstructing superheroes, comics that take apart the superhero mythos to analyze the nuts and bolts and find what makes it tick!

Watchmen! The most well-known superhero deconstruction in comics, and certainly the most influential (though not always for the best). Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' 12-issue maxiseries changed superhero comics forever with its depiction of morally ambiguous superheroes facing nuclear war in a real-world setting.

So S_D, what are your favorite superhero deconstructions?

Stick with us for all 30 days of our month-long event! Tomorrow's theme is LGBT Comics! And our full calendar can be found here!

To be fair a lot of the symbolism in Evangelion wasn't really symbolic of anything and was just there to mess up people looking at it too closely.

Why do you think I focused on character design elements? Color, Shape and Style over Crosses, Freudian Imagery and Existential Manifestations made things a lot easier.
