Superheroes in Court! (at Yale)

NY Times features a Yale University "rare books" exhibit that canvasses the portrayal of lawyers and courts in comic books:
The case of “The People vs. Superman” is not found in the hornbooks that are scoured by the nation’s law students. But if they had been youngsters in 1967, when Action Comics No. 359 first came out, they might have been amazed to see the Man of Steel in an unusual situation. Instead of zooming through the sky or confronting talkative archvillains, he is in a courtroom, sitting in the witness chair...

The show, “Superheroes in Court! Lawyers, Law and Comic Books,” provides images of superheroes in the dock, comic books about lawyers and examples of legal disputes and Congressional inquiries involving caped crusaders.
