In the atomic age of the 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Marvel Universe was populated with superheroes whose powers were derived from a fateful brush with radioactivity - but instead of dying from cancer, they were 'living' proof of the wonders of nuclear science, a bright future that the rest of America was fully expected to share in.

In Britain in the late 1970s, John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra created Judge Dredd, lawman of the future, whose stories, set in an American dystopia, explored themes of mass unemployment, social decay, and the ascendancy of fascistic law over individual freedoms through the course of the Thatcher years.
