Secondly, Judge Danforth’s irrationality and ignorance brings about poor decisions on his part. One of the instances where Danforth reveals his following attitude is when he denies to even look at a deposition presented by John Proctor as described by his words “ No, no, I accept no depositions” (Miller 88). John Proctor hands him a deposition signed by Mary warren, stating that the accusations made by Abigail and the girls are false. In this regard Judge Danforth replies to John Proctor by repetitively says “No” thereby emphasizing his adamant view on this subject. He has irrationally made up his mind that the John Proctor is trying to overthrow the court and this mind set leads him to take a poor decision of ignoring a potentially eye-opening
However, Creon’s inability to compromise with Antigone shows how narrow-minded he is. Despite the fact that Eteocles is their brother, he will not listen or hear Antigone’s request for a private burial. Creon will not let anyone make a fool out of him, which is why he doesn’t listen to any

This notion shows to the readers that no one should be locked into one role and can display traits traditionally for specific genders. Which can be seen in Nimona, as she for the most part, displays that of a non-traditional female role as she is the only one in the graphic novel willing to be calm and cool headed while nonchalantly murdering people.
