The Rights of the Unpowered

What happens to normal people when others get powers? What rights do they have, and are those rights respected? And when the people in power push the non-powered around, what happens when the non-powered push back?

Paul and I discuss non-powered individuals in worlds where others wield extraordinary abilities. We focus particularly on Avatar: Legend of Korra, Season 1, and how it addresses this question, but we also broaden the topic to cover numerous other stories. Whether you’re a hardcore Korra fan or have never seen the series, you’ll be able to follow the discussion.

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.
