    Years pass, and Dorothy returns to Oz. Dorothy's characterization in the film is more of a damsel in distress, somewhat unlike the adventurous, forthright and bold Dorothy of the books. Denslowcould also have influenced the story and the way it has been interpreted. Even the Wizard himself, though a considerably more mixed bag as a self-admitted fraud, has ruled the Emerald City benevolently and treated its people well, and does his best for Dorothy and her friends.

    Baum scholar Evan I. Superman and Batman, both do-gooders with secret identities, gained pop cultural prominence in the s, which is reflected in The Wizard of Oz through the addition of implied alter egos. This journalist would later create a series of books from Dorothy's only adventure in Oz. In many respects, Baum's creation is similar to the actual frontier save for the fact that the West was still undeveloped at the time. Time notes the similarity of the characters to superheroes.

    Dighe wrote that for 60 years after the book's publication, "virtually nobody" had such an interpretation until Henry Littlefielda high-school teacher. Notably, Dorothy is named after Baum's deceased niece, which seems like a literary reincarnation. Farmer's premise is that Dorothy only visited Oz once and told her story to a journalist called Frank Baum. So you have helped me to fulfill my life's ambition, and I am more grateful to you, my dears, than I can express in words.
