In my work, I find that I can use these characters as a metaphor for clients. I can discuss with a client that his anxiety is akin to an overactive “Spidey sense” of his favorite character Spider-man or I can discuss the loss of a loved one through the graphic novel “I Kill Giants.” I can challenge black and white thinking through comics such as “Irredeemable” or “Incorruptible.” And I can discuss the importance of teamwork and social skills through the Avengers and each character’s unique personality traits.
Therefore, the purpose of the commentaries are to introduce the reader to characters and how their struggles may relate to their own or to that of someone they know. I will always begin to offer specific suggestions for how I and my colleagues use metaphors and themes of geek and also gamer culture in our work and in our lives.
To close this post, I would like to note that I am hopeful to soon see comments from anyone reading especially early on in this blogging adventure. Please let me know what you think or what you would like to hear more about. Be well.
