About Super Nova
Discussion Points and Themes
The universal topic of sibling rivalry is given a twist in Super Nova. Readers will recognise themselves and their own family in the characters.
Super Nova plays with familiar social roles and turns them 180. What kind of person do you expect a super hero to be? In popular culture it’s usually an adult male with females relegated to support roles. Super Nova is a little girl who is a super hero. She is ingenious and fearless and protects the world from aliens. Her brother is initially antagonistic but ends by becoming her supporter. This is another reversal of social norms where boys are often the ‘stars’ and female characters exist to help them.
