Danny Fingeroth (396 words)
Danny summarized his chapter on the prevalence of orphans among superheroes, along with motivations in general, leading to a lively discussion with the audience.
When I had picked up Danny's book some months prior to his speech, I remembered it bringing up a lot of intriguing points as to what motivates someone to fight for "truth, justice, and the American way" (to borrow the popular phrase).
