The Glorification of Fanboyism in Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" , Part I - Surreal Objectification and Ideology. Part II - "September 11th, 2001 as "'Traumatic Origin'" and Part III - "The Chitauri, The Avengers, and the Fanboys" can be found here and here.

Whoo boy, this one lost me: "in order to embroil (and make complicit) the audience in the subject matter, raising them above existential crises to the position of extraordinary beings, prophets and Gods at the crossroads of universes." Yow!
Wait... watching The Avengers gives you superpowers? Nice!
Yeah, what does that even mean?
