Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens? Is it a life form that doesn’t live on earth or is it a “little green man”(dictionary.com). The media has totally changed the perspective of what foreign life forms are. Making them almost unbelievable. The term alien no longer has the mystery and excitement and possibility behind it, rather it has become a more colloquial term in regards to disbelieve.
Batman vs Superman For my compare and contrast paragraph I chose Batman vs Superman. Batman and Superman are alike in a lot of ways but there some differences. There are both alike because they are both super heroes, both from DC, and both are good at what they do. Batman in different from Superman is that Batman can’t fly and Superman can fly because his powers. Another thing is that Batman fights in Gotham the most crime ridden city.
There is a new movie out in theaters. An action-packed movie where a young African American and his city block of misfits take on rapid dinosaurs in the driveways of their own homes. Sounds like a normal movie but this movie is not focused on the “color” of the boy but on the actions of the neighborhood.The stereotypes of colored men and women in the film industry are beautifully destroyed in the free verse poem “Dinosaurs in the Hood” as Danez Smith makes a trailer of words for this movie, just waiting to be released. Smith is a colored queer poet who is known for his fiery political poems that took Youtube by storm. (cite) Smith starts the poem with a communal invitation to make a new movie.
Throughout the history of comic books in North America, there have been several iconic comics that have stood to create a literary canon for the medium, despite its low culture signification. One of these comics was Batman: The Killing Joke, in which writer Alan Moore and illustrator Brian Bolland delve into the psychology of the iconic supervillain the Joker. Despite its reputation as one of the best comics of all time, it is also one of the most controversial because of the violence enacted on Barbara Gordon, the civilian identity of Batgirl, by the Joker. Batgirl Volume 3: Death of the Family, written by Gail Simone and drawn by Daniel Sampere (with one issue written by Ray Fawkes and drawn by Ed Benes), details the harrowing reunion of
This shows that fear compels us to agree to things we wouldn't normally agree to. That last example of fear compelling us to agree to something we normally wouldn’t agree to is back to the show Supergirl. In this part of the story, the aliens have mind controlled everyone in the city except Supergirl, Max Lord, the smartest man in the city, and Cat Grant, the most powerful person in the city. They are of course afraid for the world and humanity. Max explains his plan, “ I was working on a weapon to use against the Kryptonians...all kryptonians….a bomb.Filled with Kryptonite dust.
THE SENTINEL AND 2001:A SPACE ODYSSEY Have you ever wondered the existence of qualified creatures from outer space? If your answer is “Exactly!”, here are the masterpieces of the science fiction stories referring to genius aliens: “The Sentinel” and “2001: A Space Odyssey”. “The Sentinel” is a story written by British writer Arthur C. Clarke in 1948. The story is about an astrogeologist’ s discovery of a construction beyond mankind on the surface of the moon. The other piece of art, “2001: A Space Odyssey” is the science fiction movie by Stanley Kubrick.
From the characterization, to comical descriptions, to the things the characters say, nothing that Kurt Vonnegut wrote in this story can be taken seriously. By Vonnegut presenting his story in this manner, it almost creates Harrison to look more like a supervillain than a superhero, like intended. However, in 2081, the moment Chandler Tuttle had Harrison escape from prison and barge into the auditorium, the tone switched and became extremely heroic and inspirational, creating his very own version of what today’s society would consider a superhero. The speech
ideal male figure through Batman - rigid physique and an absurd amount of intellectual capability without the beneficial attributes that are given to superheroes. In contrast, superhero graphic novels such as Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s “Superman” show an extraterrestrial being with superhero attributes who is idolized as the ideal male figure. Scholars believe that Clark Kent serves as an inspiration for the “American” man as well because of his ability to step out of the superhero world into reality and disguises himself as a comparatively simple news reporter (Aro M). Superman’s values are similar to that of Batman; he wants justice for all and for criminals to pay a price. This assists in fortifying his appearance of being a man because
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.
In conclusion, the plot is unrealistic and this story is a sci-fi story, but I recommend you read it or watch it. “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” Boom! “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” is about an ordinary street that turns from peaceful to chaos, and how easily people can turn on each other. The plot is not realistic in “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” because Les Goodman’s car started on its own in the 1950s, they blamed the power outage on aliens, and Charlie shot Pete Van
