After a long and perilous quest, Gilgamesh secures an herb that will, if not make him immortal, restore his youth. He hasn’t yet used it when the snake steals it. Some interpreters suggest that he wanted to “test” the herb on the elders of Uruk first, while others, giving him the benefit of the doubt, say that he was being a good king by wanting to share it with his subjects before enjoying it himself.

In the movie, the main character, Jim, towards the end of the movie, gets infected by the rage virus but learns to control it. For example, in the movie, “Jim kills a man aggressively as he rips another man's eyes out and then runs over towards his friend selena. Selena is scared to die because he is infected and would most likely kill her, but Jim controls the virus with his ego that balances the sides of him out and doesn't let the virus and infection take control of him” (Boyle). 28 Days Later also connects to the book Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde because Jim is a very similar character to Dr. Jekyll. Both characters have two sides to them, but the only difference is that Jim can control and balance between his good and evil side, while Jekyll fails to control his transformation between the two sides of
In The Watchmen, The Comedian rapes Sally, but is not punished for his crime and only murdered for being in the way of Ozymandias’ plans to prevent World War III. Identity Crisis is almost more flipped in the rape situation. The rapist lives, and Dr. Light’s story is covered up with lies from any person outside of the Justice League. the Justice League sought that when Batman disagreed with their cover-up for a hero that extreme ties come for extreme measures, so they attempted to wipe his memory.

Shakespeare then juxtaposes blood and rain, in order to create a contrast between redemption and sin, “What if this cursed hand were thicker than itself with brother’s blood, is it here not rain enough in the sweet heavens to wash it white as snow?” Shakespeare uses hyperbole in Claudius’ speech in order for Claudius to exaggerate his brother’s death as a more noteworthy feat for the crown and almost begs for pity for his consumption into power. The blood is juxtaposed with rain, where water is symbolic of spiritual and physical cleansing.
