According to Gould, the 1960s television show Batman was an unexpected cultural revolution because for children watching television in the 60s, the Batman TV series was a joyfully relaxing exercise for them. Also, this became a comedy classic and it was a cultural phenomenon in the 1960s. The Batman TV series was famous because this series has humor and a colorful cast of villains. As well, Batman have some aspect of popular culture, that he represents the reflection of society making him a superhero. In addition, Batman in the society wants to do justice on a bad attitude committed. He saw justice like fight a war on crime, and the goal was that the city does not belong to do criminal things and corruption. In fact, Batman has the ability
[NEED APPROVE FOR GM AND BATMAN CHARACTER TO BE OFFICIAL] When Catwoman goes to confront Jefferson, Batman appears out of the darkness to stop Catwoman. He knows that Jefferson was also behind the kidnapping of Holly and tells her that he deserves a jury of his peers. Catwoman doubts this, but Batman offers that Lt. Gordon will help and listen with an unbiased ear. But, she still doubts him as it 's 'corrupted with men of money '.
Terrorism is a huge problem in the United States and all around the world. It is a federal offense that ends with the death penalty--or at least it should. In fact, the exact definition of terrorism is, “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” From a worldly perspective, Batman represents the government, and the Joker represents terrorists. Since the government should put terrorists to death, Batman should do the same to the Joker. It’s crazy how society takes more action on Batman and the Joker rather than real-life threats, like terrorism. The government is so scared of what the outcome of its decision will be that it does not act in the most efficient ways. This is why the government isn’t always the best with following through with these executions. The Batman must kill the Joker, or else the rest of society will pay for it. The government is showing society that unlawful acts are acceptable and will be tolerated and that is ridiculously disgusting.
Bob Kane’s fictional vigilante, Batman, is Gotham City’s greatest hero, capable of overcoming difficult challenges and defeating intimidating opponents. However, does the resilient hero have what it takes to face the struggle of love? In “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Night”, Travis Langley, the author, delves into the mind of Batman to offer readers his professional opinion regarding Batman’s mental health after experiencing the most unfortunate event of his life, the death of his parents. Dr. Langley carefully analyzed every appearance Batman has made, whether it be comic or film, and studied Batman’s behavior to decode his hidden mental processes. He covers a wide range of mental illnesses such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, obsession, etc. However, the most intriguing topic concerning Batman’s mental stability was the evaluation of Batman’s love life. Batman has fallen in love but he lives a life of mystery and interacts with a false identity. To keep Gotham citizens unaware that Batman is Bruce Wayne, Bruce wears a bat-suit which is a dark outfit that includes a night bat-like mask while fighting crime. To further conceal his identity from the world, Bruce gave his real name an alter-ego that has the personality of a wealthy playboy while he acts out his true identity as Batman. Thus, Batman is unable to maintain a romantic relationship with anyone due to intimacy and his alter-ego, regardless if Batman wants a love life or not.
Throughout the decades men have dominated the comic-book industry. They played a very important role in perpetuating stereotypes. The male writers, publishers, editors, and creators wrote for the their target audience, which was primarily young boys. The 90s was a period of time where society obsessed over male strength, which in turn led the idea of how fragile a woman is compared to a man. Batman and Batgirl are both human superheroes; they do not have any special healing factor or any other kind of superpowers. All his enemies constantly give Batman brutal beatings, but he always walks away from the fight (see appendix 1). He suffers no long-term effects because men must have strength; suffering is a sign of weakness, and men can never be weak—society demands that. Complementary to this, in Batman: The Killing Joke, Batgirl is shot by the Joker and is paralyzed for life (see appendix 2). The juxtaposition of Batman’s invincibility
This paper describes three particular scenes throughout The Dark Knight and elaborates on those scenes in terms of three specific psychological principles. The psychological principles discussed in this paper is Kohlberg 's theory of postconventional morality, the social trap theory, and antisocial personality disorder.
Have you ever done something good and something bad happened as a result or done something bad and something good happen as a result? This happens many times throughout life as well as in movies and books. Two epitomes of this occurring are in Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” and in the movie The Dark Knight. In “Julius Caesar” Caesar says and does things for the good of Rome yet is taken the wrong way and seen as a villain, resulting in his tragic death of being stabbed numerous by his closest friends. In The Dark Knight, the Joker is wicked and vile to the city of Gotham killing lots of people and can be seen as a hero because he exposed all the corruption in the government. Although they have similar experiences in adulthood Caesar and the Joker are opposites because of how they grew up, as a result Caesar is a hero and the Joker
In Scott Bukatman’s essay, “Boys in The Hood” he talks about how superheroes represent cities, how they hold their own as they move through them, and how their masks and costumes identify them. I would like to focus more on Batman’s Gotham City, his mask, and his movement along with the comic panels.
'''Level-headedness:''' Jane's ability to remain objective during crisis has made her a respected voice of reason, and an asset in discussions of tactics. It also makes her one of the few people who can influence Kenny when he behaves irrationally (albeit very little).
The Joker lives for chaos. There is a perfect example of this in the movie. The scene where he is talking to Harvey Dent in the hospital. He describes his actions as that of a dog chasing a car. Also the ferry dilemma is a perfect example of the Jokers chaos. The Joker is equally brutal. The joker has no problem killing. Actually he seems to enjoy it. The more brutal the better. In one story line the Joker murders Gordon's wife in cold blood. He shoots here in the face for the sole fact that she was trying to protect a group of infants. The Joker also brutally beat Robin to death with a
What makes someone a hero? Most people would say someone who saves the day or has super powers or even characters in books are heroes. Antigone is a young woman in the play Antigone by Sophocles, Antigone is considered a hero by many for giving up her life for her brother and going against the law in 44 B.C. While Terry Malloy is considered a hero in the movie On the Waterfront for also going against rules. Malloy would be considered a rough kid who got into a bad situation with a group of mugs while working on the dock, not only does he save the day for himself but for others that are working on the docks as well. Antigone and Terry both go against rules for what they believe is right and become heroes.
The three movies – Platoon, Full Metal Jacket, and The Green Berets – are all movies based on the same historical event – the Vietnam war and US’s involvement in it. Yet, they all presented us with different and narrative point of view and authority figures in order to paint their individual values.
Jasper Dent is different from a lot of people. Jasper is 17 years old with sandy blonde hair, like his father, and deep hazel eyes, like his mother. Jasper describes these eyes as “sane eyes” in the story. Jasper’s father, Billy Dent, is a serial killer who was arrested 4 years ago for over 120 murders. Jasper’s mother disappeared when he was young and Jasper had assumed his father had killed her. Jasper has serious mental issues because of this. He has a fear of becoming like his father and is also paranoid that he will kill like his father did. Jasper has to remind himself “People matter.” and “People are real.” on a daily basis. Despite this, Jasper has a unique gift of reading people. Jasper has the ability to notice distinct things that
Even when comparing him with another run-of-the-mill hero like Batman, his shortcomings are still fairly obvious. Beowulf and Batman are both archetypal characters that embody the quintessential aspects of the epic hero. They both execute a great deal of strength. Beowulf swims for seven days and nights while simultaneously fighting sea monsters. He also displays robustness fighting Grendel when he rips off Grendel’s arm barehanded. Batman, also regularly and single-handedly, fights gangs of criminals, showing not only strength but endurance. They also have a similar codes of ethics. Batman’s moral code forbids murder unless absolutely necessary. In the comic Hush, he says “They say that when you kill a man you not only take away what he was,
The poem “Fade” bring to the light the pain of Jackson after Stuart’s death. Unconsciously Jackson can’t let go his friend. He stared to have dreams about Stuart. He really miss Stuart. As Jackson describe Stuart in his dreams, he says, “Wanted to say good-bye” (11s. 75-76). Implying that Stuart wants to say good bye to him but, what he really is saying is that he would like to have a chance to say farewell to his friend. He never had a change to do it. Trust and love define friendship. The book of poems ‘Missing you, Metropolis’ by Gary Jackson expose truths about life with poems in a united way. Whereas he used superheroes from comic books to get his point across. Showing the reader uncomfortable realities
