However, the most intriguing topic concerning Batman’s mental stability was the evaluation of Batman’s love life. Batman has fallen in love but he lives a life of mystery and interacts with a false identity. To keep Gotham citizens unaware that Batman is Bruce Wayne, Bruce wears a bat-suit which is a dark outfit that includes a night bat-like mask while fighting crime. To further conceal his identity from the world, Bruce gave his real name an alter-ego that has the personality of a wealthy playboy while he acts out his true identity as Batman. Thus, Batman is unable to maintain a romantic relationship with anyone due to intimacy and his alter-ego, regardless if Batman wants a love life or not.
Dystopian fiction, is a very popular genre, which depicts worlds where society has broken down and generally devalues human beings. There is always a reason to write a dystopian novel. In the modern day world, there are a lot of dystopian fiction writers, for example Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Lois Lowry and etc., but one of the best dystopian fiction writers is Ray Douglas Bradbury. He wrote Fahrenheit 451, one of the most popular dystopian novels ever written. Bradbury was afraid of the technology and was against the mass-media propaganda in the USA, but it all started from the time period he lived in.

The theory claims more people conspired than just Oswald, and the “magic bullet” government investigators used to explain the strike on Kennedy and Governor Connally is impossible. According to a poll conducted by FiveThirtyEight.com, 61% of 5,130 Americans
In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families. As modern audience, we cannot afford but to remark that in a modern world where Mario Puzo’s masterpiece is chronicled revenge by murder is unacceptable by law, it is the concern of the police forces. However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience. This reminds us of the epic atmosphere, where man battles against man, and where stable institutions that are supposed to regulate their actions are absent.
What Scorsese did differently was that he made male protagonists vulnerable again, just like they were in the old mobster movie days, but in a bit more realistic way Scorsese produces movies in a way that, according to Kolker, he „Determines our point of view and our emotional and intellectual attachment to the film. We are therefore, scarcely allowed any separation from what the central character is seeing. “ (218). He even does this directly by breaking the fourth wall twice in Goodfellas, and therefore making us feel as though we are the acomplices in all the things that were happening in the film. And we all know that it is very hard to judge ourselves effectively.
The new Marvel Movie, Black Panther, just hit the market and everyone is raving about it already. This movie hero from modern times shares the same qualities as a hero from ancient Greece; the stories of heroes use the same concepts, just with different names and settings. For example, Odysseus from Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey, shares multiple characteristics with the Black Panther. The major difference between the two is that Odysseus is struggling to go back home while Black Panther is struggling to save his home, but both concern the battle against injustice.
Christopher Columbus is a man who is known in society simultaneously as a hero and a villain of his time. What if the world had to pick only one, what would it be? Many new studies and scholars believe that Columbus was the villain of his story not a hero as past information would lead us to believe. Past documents were all written from the Europe’s point of view, this would lead to extremely biased documents because Europe was the side to profit unlike the Native
In the essay, “Superman and Me” by Sherman Alexie, the author uses an extended metaphor to compare himself to the comic book superhero,Superman. The extended metaphor develops in a way that is similar to Alexie developing. Alexie does not have literal, “alien” qualities but, he demonstrates strange actions in the eyes of his society and peers, just like Superman.
The film “Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch 's War on Journalism” was about having one person in control of the media corporation on freedom of the press. I found this film interesting because it was exposure how the behind the scene of media work. Since it was exposing how Fox News asked journalists to lie, and when they refused, they were fired. How Bill O 'Reilly and Sean Hannity attempt to intimidate guests with whom they disagree and who the company disagree with. In addition, how controlling the network 's content, and editorial control ensuring which stories and issues are covered and the strongly conservative perspective of such coverage.
Attributes of a hero have remained the same over time, which is shown through Greek heroes like Hercules demonstrating the same traits as modern heroes like Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman. One of the traits Hercules and Batman share is their passion for becoming a hero. The audience can see this characteristic during the “I Can Go The Distance” song when Hercules proclaims, “Somehow I'll be strong, I know every mile will be worth my while, I would go most anywhere to find where I belong.” Similarly, the audience can see Batman's passion each time he drops whatever he is doing, changes into his elaborate costume, and risks his life to save the city of Gotham from villains like The Joker and Bane. Another trait that Hercules shares with a
"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself" (Joseph Campbell). What makes a true hero? Heroes are individuals who care about the well-being of others, and put others before themselves. Every day everyone encounters a hero, whether that is a parent, friend, neighbor, or sibling. Heroic acts are not always saving a crowd of individuals or the world; sometimes a heroic act can even be making time for family.
I believe that a hero should possess the skills to fight for a what they believe in whether their belief is good or bad. They should be recognized at some point in time and praised for their actions even if their actions were just speaking up. They should possess courage and bravery to do what they think is right. People think that a hero is someone who has superpowers or fights crime but that isn't fully true, anyone can turn any qualities they have into qualities a hero has as long as they know the risks of what they are trying to do because some people may consider someone to be a hero while other people think they aren't a hero. I believe that Odysseus is a hero based on opinion.
Heroes in our society are revered and respected as Joseph Campbell reminds us: “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself” (Joseph Campbell). Heroes exist in all societies and throughout history. Maybe they are not always on the news or from the movies, but their words and their actions never fail to resonate across their feats. A hero gives of himself and dedicates himself to causes which better others and their society unlike individuals who are self serving, greedy, and cruel.
