Purple Man, Empath, and the Ethics of Total Control

What sense of morality emerges when you’re never denied anything? Can one learn the importance of not causing harm when they have the power to manipulate emotions at will? Join us as Will and Steve from Hype is my Superpower delve into the complexities of these questions. We’ll discuss the portrayals of Purple Man in Jessica Jones and Empath from X-Men, examining the ethical dimensions of characters with the ability to exert total control.
