    Paranoid in the land of superheroes
    Between the 1930s and the 1950s, in the heart of a troubled America in search of itself, two emblematic pop culture figures opposed each other: Fredric Wertham and William Moulton Marston. Wertham, a legal psychiatric expert, is leading a campaign against comic books while Moulton, an entertainment industry professional and the creator of
    Wonder Woman, is defending its pedagogical merits. The story of this conflict is told through these two characters, a kiosk and passers-by. It is a reflection of American society.
