After hesitating, he murders King Duncan and this starts transforming him into a paranoid person. His paranoia causes him to order the deaths of close friends and allies. This transformation demonstrates how evil takes over good compared to Beowulf where there is already an evil creature present. Beowulf is a story about an evil creature named Grendel who terrorizes the castle of Hrothgar, killing many. Hrothgar calls Beowulf to kill Grendel and other villains which shows the distinct line between good and evil.

Any attempt to leave the city will result in the detonation of a nuclear bomb, that was once the Wayne Enterprises fusion reactor.

After an attempt to sneak Special Forces soldiers into the city fails, the government blockades Gotham and the city further regresses into a state of
The plot is very identical to each other. In the mythology, Theseus volunteers to kill the Minotaur, a monster that devoured many young maidens and youths. Collin 's told that "Katniss is a futuristic Theseus" (A killer story: An interview with Suzanne Collins, author of 'The Hunger Games ', Slj.com). The government was highly totalitarian and went as far to use their citizens for their entertainment by throwing them into the arena, while the Capitol citizens watched the tributes slowly and painfully die while doing their activities. The Capitol used their power to do something despicable and used the words "Treaty of Treason" to cover up their idea of preventing another rebellion.
Where the drill instructor, Hartman, breaks the recruits spirit and “strips them of their freedom, their pride, (and) their names”(Corliss 66). In doing so, Hartman breaks all the recruits down, so they can rise up in the brotherhood of the Marine Corp together. At basic training, a cleansing of femininity is done to refine the masculine killers within. One of the ways Joker shows his masculinity is by killing the female sniper, which also symbolizes killing the femininity in Joker himself. Though it is impossible to remove all femininity from a man, it is the goal of the Marine Corp to suppress
One of the perfect examples that shows the violence in the “Legends of the Dark Knight” is when Batman brutally kills the beast by cutting his extremities off. The author states “Batman kills the dreadful beast and hears a loud beast’s scream about his spare. However, it is too late; Batman cuts his head and arms with a light ray and only beast’s blood left on the Batman’s light ray gun.” (Dixon 17). This description of the brutal killing scene gives a child a very bad example of how the people can treat each other which is absolutely unacceptable in our society. The fact that one person can easily kill another is inappropriate and prohibited by every law.
The novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury takes place in the future where everyone is brainwashed by technology thanks to the government and where books are illegal and whoever is found with books will get their house burned down with the books in them by the firemen who now are in charge of starting fires not putting them out, and the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee takes place sometime during the great depression, narrated by scout the daughter of atticus.In fahrenheit 451 and to kill a mockingbird being an upstander means defying what society thinks is acceptable, However In Fahrenheit 451 the upstanders take a more violent approach to the problem and in To Kill a Mockingbird they try to solve things civilly.

Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
We also see noteworthy example in the hospital, when The Joker hands over his gun to Harvey Dent then points it to his head, betting his life on the chance that Dent would take up his philosophy of anarchy. And IT only forces its victims to break their spiritual or religious morals. The Joker is a psychotic radical mastermind who is indicating himself as an agent of chaos, and who came to command the wicked underworld by driving Gotham into anarchy and moving Batman ever closer to go beyond the fine line between courageousness and vigilantism. People can also describe the joker as a psycho with a hint of schizo clown with zero empathy. He is dynamic in both mental combat and strategic planning, and his physical type is distinct by his clown makeup and grim smile to add sick comedy to all his crimes and
Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games are both ruled by an oppressive government in a futuristic society. In Fahrenheit 451 the government keeps the people in check by using the power of ignorance. They purposely make sure the people’s only source of outside knowledge is through technology they control, TV. They take extreme measures when the people are not compliant and burn their house down along with property. The Hunger Games government on the other hand take a more direct approach in their attempts to make the people ignorant.
