In the poem of “Touchscreen,” by Marshall Davis Jones, he is explaining how our feelings towards technology are crucial and where we do not want to live in a world without internet or media.

Adam Shepard and Chris McCandless are marvelous people who journey out to figure out if the American Dream was still alive and from both of their perspective both did achieve it, but one did not make it back. Both had a different objective of achieving the American Dream, McCandless went into the wilderness with only 10 pounds of rice, and a camera, while Shepard went into the city of Charleston with only $25, the clothes on his back, a sleeping bag, and a duffle bag. McCandless went into the wilderness because he said that his parents do not really love, he gets everything from them, and he wants to be more self-reliance. Shepard went into Charleston because he wanted to prove that the American Dream can be achieved anywhere only if you have the commitment to do it.

Gifted with incredible endurance and super strength, the ability of flight, and an impeccable moral compass, Superman is the quintessential superhero that Americans of all ages have admired and looked up to since his conception in 1938. In Brad Bird’s 1999 feature animation The Iron Giant, the fifty-foot metal protagonist is no exception. Hiding out in a barn, he peers at an issue of the Superman comic book like an amused child with his eyes wide and mouth agape.

Crash landed on Earth…he only uses his powers for good, never for evil.” As Hogarth places the comic book down among the others spread across the ground, the Iron Giant’s eyes dart to the cover of Atomo—a giant “metal menace. The cover depicts a fifty-foot tall metal monster with lasers beaming from its eyes, vaporizing an entire village and killing all its people. The Iron Giant looks at the cover with horror, recognizing his physical resemblance to Atomo as if he were looking into a broken mirror. Hogarth tries to
