One of the main issues in this movie is an ethical issue of itself. Do you kill a man because his power is so great he could possibly destroy the world? Or is that unethical. Then there is the battle of Superman and Batman. Their battle wasn’t all that destructive but it was dangerous.
Bruce Wayne swore vengeance on all criminals. He created this bat persona to hunt down all of Gotham’s cruelest criminals. Odysseus isn’t the real hero. Even though everyone believes Odysseus is the ideal hero, but the real optimal hero is Batman. Many people are misguided with the perception that Odysseus is a model hero.
One of the perfect examples that shows the violence in the “Legends of the Dark Knight” is when Batman brutally kills the beast by cutting his extremities off. The author states “Batman kills the dreadful beast and hears a loud beast’s scream about his spare. However, it is too late; Batman cuts his head and arms with a light ray and only beast’s blood left on the Batman’s light ray gun.” (Dixon 17). This description of the brutal killing scene gives a child a very bad example of how the people can treat each other which is absolutely unacceptable in our society. The fact that one person can easily kill another is inappropriate and prohibited by every law.
Also, the classical heroes are courageous. Oliver Queen is courageous and he has determination to combat crime. However, Oliver Queen doesn’t have supernatural powers and help of the gods like the classical heroes have. This hero fits to the idea of the ‘’Heroes Journey’’, because of a number of reasons. In every battle against the crime, at the crisis he learns a lesson and improve his quality to fight crime.
Beowulf the mightiest hero, he kills demons, fights dragons, and does everything he can for the people, but how does he stack up against today's heroes like Spider Man. Beowulf can kill monsters, demons, and demons mothers, but what about if the circumstances were swapped. What if Beowulf had to fight some of the villains that a hero like Spider Man fights? Would he still be able to boast about taking them on bare handed? Comparing Beowulf to some of the villains of the comics may not make him seem as strong or have as much battle prowess.
Batman vs Superman For my compare and contrast paragraph I chose Batman vs Superman. Batman and Superman are alike in a lot of ways but there some differences. There are both alike because they are both super heroes, both from DC, and both are good at what they do. Batman in different from Superman is that Batman can’t fly and Superman can fly because his powers. Another thing is that Batman fights in Gotham the most crime ridden city.
Burton’s films also focus around the corruption of high authoritative people, including Max Shreck, the president of Gotham city in Batman and also the corruption of the Judge in Sweeney Todd. Furthermore, the high authoritative people who have already attained success and acceptance from society, tend to be the corrupt and evil characters, the real monsters, whereas the physical monsters and anti-heroes that are neglected from society, are the ones who deserve recognition from the public, these misunderstood characters include Penguin from Batman Returns who fights to gain acceptance and love from society, something Max has already gained. This could also be interpreted in Edward Scissorhands whereas the misunderstood monster, Edward, is kind and wants acceptance and love from society, however the public pose as the real monsters, who stereotype him and are quick to point the finger, leading to the public actually posing as a threat and becoming the true villains, where at the end, they hunt down Edward and lead to the kidnap, attack and death of civilians.
In the 2008 film The Dark Knight directed by Christopher Nolan, it can be argued that the main character Batman is considered morally ambiguous, because even though he is a vigilante the way in which he does things does not always correspond with the law. Batman’s alter-ego Bruce Wayne is a billionaire who dedicates himself to protecting Gotham City from its criminal underworld and from his archenemy, The Joker. One of the reasons Batman can be considered ambiguous is because he does immoral things such as hacking peoples cellphones and using the signals as a map of the city, even though he commits this unethical act, it is all done to protect the city from The Joker. The vigilante Batman is always dressed in black and only comes out at night, hence The Dark Knight, this is ironic because Batman is actually a hero, but he is dressed like a villain. Camera angles and music help the audience understand the Batman is actually the good guy, for example Batman is always shown from a low angle which makes the audience look up to him, making him superior.
