Mercy, Honor, and Karate in Cobra Kai

Mercy. Honor. Heroes. Bullies. Teen love triangles. 80’s music. Karate.
Paul and Matthew dive into the Karate Kid ‘verse with the hit TV show Cobra Kai. What does it mean to be a bully or a hero, and how do we lock ourselves, and others, into those boxes? What happens when the victim gains enough power to become a bully themselves? Is physical violence an ethical response to verbal bullying?

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
