Diversity is bigger than ever in the world of superheroes and fan culture but there's one group that tends to be overlooked in the medium: people with disabilities. Travis Rivas (editor, Super-Abled Comics), Angel Giuffria (actress, Goliath, Green Lantern), Jay Justice (editor/co-founder of LGBT HQ), Trace Wilson (author, Uniquely Me), Sarah Tuberty (Disarming Disability podcast), and Jennifer Kretchmer (executive producer, cast member Monsters & Fables) take a look at how to accurately create fully realized characters while trying to avoid the stereotypes typically associated with disability while also discussing how to navigate the industry while having a disability, how disability can be a superpower, and about advocating for the disabled community at large.
