The “Superheroes and the Law” display at the Jacob Burns Law Library answers that question as it explores the relationship between comic books and the legal profession. The display features six famous Superheroes and Villains who were all attorneys. Read how Matt Murdock (aka Daredevil) explains Hearsay and Dying Declaration as he matches wits against She Hulk representing Steve Rogers in a wrongful death action. Check out the book The Law of Superheroes for an entertaining application of legal doctrines to comic book stories. Come by the library and learn about the many ways Superheroes are connected to the Law.
And the answer from the display – Batgirl, aka Barbara Gordon, was the daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon. Barbara Gordon, Ph.D. in library science, worked at the Gotham City Public Library.
