Odysseus is not parallel to any set of villains or even a single villain. He just winds up in complicated circumstances where he suffers the wrath of Poseidon for killing his son, Cyclops in the attempt to escape. He uses one of his similarities with Batman; ingenuity, by telling Cyclops his name is Nobody. By doing so, when Cyclops calls for help, everyone in the surrounding area would ridicule him, for instance on page 224 line 455 when Cyclops yelled, ‘Nobody’s killing me now by fraud and not by force!’ Batman is faced with numerous trials, but still persists in his goal of fairness for all. Similarly, Odysseus just wants to return to his island home, but still treats his obstacles with as much as respect as possible.
However, emphasis on the male body is only given in scenes which highlight the body in (violent) action. Shots of Wayne’s body in the trilogy and Bane’s body in The Dark Knight Rises always highlight scars and bruises as proof of the active role of men in patriarchal ideology. Moreover, The Dark Knight Rises provides an example of gender as “a performance with clearly punitive consequences” (Butler 522). In the cinematic world of Nolan’s Batman, soon-to-be Commissioner Foley tries to avoid fighting to stop anarchy in Gotham after Bane has declared martial law. When he finally joins the re-established police forces, his character gets killed by the anarchist
Superheros are Lit/Superheros Characteristics When I was 10 years old I really got into superheros when I saw Batman begins for the first time I loved the fact that Batman went through so much training to become a hero to find who killed his parents and Batman was a billionaire who wanted to help his city come back to the way it was before his parents died.

Flash is a superhero who has the ability to run as fast as the speed of light this makes him a great superhero because he has to learn to live with his powers and keep his powers out of his real life and not let anyone know he's the Flash. Deadpool has the ability to regrow body parts this makes him a great hero because he does not care for his powers he wants to get rid of them, but he acts like a villain, but is a hero so he adds comedy to his character which allows people to connect with him more.
Thus, he has the same pain threshold with the ordinary humans and he could sustain a lot of wounds the same way we can. What Batman has is dedication and hard work. Before he is born as the hero of the city of Gotham, he spent a substantial portion of his life training with the League of the Shadows (Johnson).

In one iconic and powerful exchange in the movie The Dark Knight, Two-Face, a heroic district attorney turned villain said to one of the protagonists, Jim Gordon, “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain.” This quote eloquently describes the ideology of characters who are neither a hero nor truly a villain, but fall somewhere between. For many, morally grey characters are fascinatingly terrifying since their actions are understandable, but also condemnable. Often, morally grey character have good intentions but have extreme viewpoints or methods that go too far and disregard collateral damage. This type of character is developed in both the fantasy novel Vicious by V.E. Schwab and the fantasy novel The Song
