The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines morals as “the principles of right and wrong in behavior.” Since Huck is not particularly influenced by religious beliefs, his ideas of moral behavior are a tad different. In Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Twain shows Huck grow as a character from the start where he faked his own death, to the end where he decides to not turn in Jim. Huck considers Jim to be a friend, and the story reveals how Huck holds this friendship higher than other moral actions. Jim is a complicated subject for Huck because on one hand, he “steals” Jim from the widow, supports a runaway slave, and harbors a fugitive.
The second example of this was when Harrison Bergeron removed all of his handicaps on live television.

In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.

Many movies that we see in the movie theaters now are an adaptation of books from the past. We have many famous examples such as Spiderman comic to Spiderman Homecoming and Doom the video game was made into a Movie starring Dwayne Johnson. Linda Hutcheon defines adaptation in “Beginning to Theorize Adaptation” as " repetition, but repetition without replication" (7). What Hutcheon is stating is that all adaptation might be copied, but it will not be the same as the original. Many adaptations can exist from comic to movie, book to movie or game to movie, but not all adaptations are successful, since most of what is done in a book or game can require a huge budget to bring to reality.
