Although he may prevent a reasonable amount of crime, he destroys cities and is unable to control his own anger. The hulk is considered a superhero within the story line of the comics and films because of the role he plays but morally speaking, thee hulk has several faults that should prevent him from being classified a hero. Batman falls right in between these two examples. He is most known for consistently protecting the city of Gotham but he also has a dark side to him, hence the name “The Dark Knight.” He takes the fall for something he did not do, which establishes him as a criminal within the law, which in turn forces him to break the law by avoiding the police force. Batman meets enough of the criteria to be classified as a respectable superhero because he saves the people of Gotham constantly and he does not fight crime for personal gain but for the betterment of the community.
In The Watchmen, The Comedian rapes Sally, but is not punished for his crime and only murdered for being in the way of Ozymandias’ plans to prevent World War III. Identity Crisis is almost more flipped in the rape situation. The rapist lives, and Dr. Light’s story is covered up with lies from any person outside of the Justice League. the Justice League sought that when Batman disagreed with their cover-up for a hero that extreme ties come for extreme measures, so they attempted to wipe his memory. However different it may seem, in the Watchmen, like Identity Crisis, where they protected the hero who committed an immoral act, Rorschach was displeased with Adrian Veidt, otherwise known as Ozymandias.
The psychological principle (or disorder) that best applies to Joker 's merciless behavior is antisocial personality disorder. Antisocial personality disorder, according to Myers (2011), "is a personality disorder in which the person (usually a man) exhibits a lack of conscience for wrongdoing, even toward friends and family members." Those with antisocial personality disorder tend to lie, break laws, act impulsively, and lack regard for their own safety or the safety of others. In addition, those with antisocial personality disorder may be aggressive and ruthless or even an astute con artist. However, not all criminals have antisocial personality disorder; if a criminal exhibits a sense of responsibility or a moral compass in other areas of their life (areas of their life other than crime), then that criminal does not have antisocial personality disorder.
“As a man, I 'm flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed; but as a symbol ... as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting” (Batman Begins). Batman is one of the most popular superheroes of all time. Although he has no superpowers, his willpower and intelligence combined with his physical prowess, and ingenuity make him an incredibly dangerous opponent. In his secret identity he puts on the mask of Bruce Wayne, billionaire, playboy. In Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, Batman combats crime and faces several villains and their plots to wreak havoc and cause chaos.
Being ruthless, he is also insane. In the movie The Dark Knight, Joker says, “ Come nightfall, this city is mine, and anyone left plays by my rules. If you don 't want to be in the game, get out now,” (The Dark Knight). This shows that Joker is insane because he claims a whole city his and doesn 't just simply rob banks and get rich, no, he just plunges it into anarchy, which makes him a better villain than Poseidon. While being both ruthless and insane, he also hates his hero, Batman.
Even when the Joker works with someone or he hires someone to work for him he dose'nt care at all for that person, he would be willing to kill them one second and tell a joke to them the next. The Joker's nemisis however, the Batman loves his sidekicks and would be willing to die for anyone of them. One of Joker's special qualities that he also has is that no one really knows why he is joker. Joker is just Joker because of something that happened in his past. So what i am trying to say is that we don't know what happened to the Joker so there is a cloud of mystery around him.
That even though the robbers were criminals, leaving them behind to die would make him no better than murders. Huck Finn was able to make ethical choices through his conscience instead of through God’s guide. Another example of making moral decisions without religion is shown through Jim’s actions. Jim ,an uneducated runaway slave, relies on his superstitions rather than religion to make judgements. When Huck and Jim came across a flooded house with a dead man laying on the floor, Jim was quick to “throw some old rags over him to prevent Huck from seeing the “gashly” looking dead man (50).
The additional problem is that although Soapy breaks the law, he does not act like a criminal. Moreover, although he tries to be a “crook,” he keeps running into real criminals who thwart him, such as the umbrella thief, from whom he cannot steal what is already stolen, and the streetwalker, whom he cannot offend because she considers him a potential customer. Thus, Soapy seems “doomed to liberty.” “The hibernatorial ambitions of Soapy were not of the highest… Three months on the island was what his soul craved… the island loomed big and timely in Soapy’s mind.” It is clear that Soapy is more than desperate of becoming incarcerated, as he has tried six times, but each time, ending in failure. A story with an ironic, mocking tone such as this one, in which a bum who talks like a gentleman despicably tries to get himself thrown into jail but continually fails, can only end one way. As can be seen, the basic irony of this story is that as long as Soapy is “free”, that is, loose in the city, he is not free at all, because of the coming winter.
The neurotic criminal driven by equally irresistible but unconscious forces, the nature of which is unknown to the criminal. Most of these criminals are seen to regard his criminal tendencies as foreign to his personality and tries fruitlessly to struggle with them. Neurotic delinquents are often misconstrued as having a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality or “double personality” which is scorned by judges and others who wish to maintain the age old mentality that divides mankind into black and white spectrums as well as the belief that we are responsible for our own impulses and control our own destinies. The author also implies that a large proportion of offenses often happen in reaction to sudden excruciating mental stress. The author also believes that a combination of psychological and practical consequences of the offense then combine and compelling the individual deeper into
What makes someone a crook or more specifically, a wanted felon, is someone who acknowledges the laws emplaced for the better good, but instead, chooses to ignore them for their own selfish benefit. In the same fashion, The Usual Suspects’ portrayal of the five main criminals illustrates they don’t care for anyone but themselves. For example, Verbal voiced after their interrogations, “what the cops never figured out, and what I know now, was that these men would never break, never lie down, never bend over for anybody.” This explains how Verbal, also known as, Keyser Soze, could look his partners in the face, specifically his so-called best friend Keaton, and shoot them without hesitation. Of course, all criminals are humans and all humans have weaknesses, especially when it concerns love. Keaton, for instance, declared himself a “businessman” multiple times in the film, thus signifying his retirement in the crime industry of New York City.
Because Wes had no boundaries for what he could do this led him down a criminal path of dealing drugs. He knew how the drug game worked “…the streets would get him that money back, and more”(page 74). Wes without any expectations, but to make money gets himself into trouble, and “getting arrested was starting to feel routine”(page 114). Since Wes has no expectations for him, he doesn’t fulfill his true potential, while the author was pushed to his limits and beyond allowing him to exceed everyone’s
Thomas wakes up from the surgery and realizes that the procedure was not completed. He finds a note from the Chancellor of WICKED, saying that they already have enough resources to complete the cure, but there is a disagreement on how to continue. She states that WICKED has fallen, and the location of a “safe place” where Thomas can bring all of the Immunes that WICKED used in their trials. Once he locates the others, they find that the Right Arm does not intend to take over the WICKED’s research; they intend to destroy it. As the facility explodes and crumbles, Thomas and the Immunes escape the
