L'évolution des représentations de la famille dans la saga Batman, de 1939 à nos jours

Abstract : This thesis is about the representations of the family in Batman, created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger in 1939. Through the analysis of comic books, films, TV series and video games, these works have to answer the following questions: is the family subject a way to transform a comic book into a monument of American culture? Is it the key, or a way, to decline a vigilante story on different Medias, as Henry Jenkins wrote on The Matrix? Is Batman patrimonial because of its nature of human society mirror through the ages? In order to answer these questions, the franchise is analyzed through graphic and cinematic studies, sociology and psychanalysis. The first part of this thesis is about the different elements which characterize the saga and stay the same through ages. The second part deals with evolutions and iterations, based on these unchangeable elements.
