Keeping in mind the ultimate goal of maintaining stability, the community’s passivity is essential to prevent the advent of change that would disrupt social order and endangers the dominant classes’ status. Reversely, an active community, helping individuals integrate, would be promoting change, which opposes the conservative ideology. The advocacy for passivity, ignoring the individual’s need for help, is opposed repeatedly in Superman Earth One, for instance in the second volume, after Clark’s second battle with the villain, a “Parasite” absorbing people’s energy. Right after the battle, Clark, still dressed as Superman, has to drag himself on the street, completely powerless, weak and unable to fly. Despite his injuries, he manages to change his clothes and walks back to his apartment, meeting many people on his way but never receiving any help.
Now, instead of fighting just for “truth and justice,” as he had been doing since his creation, Superman fought for “truth, justice, and the American Way” (Impact of Superman). This wasn’t really a noticeable change, considering the large amounts of patriotism that America felt (Impact of
Batman (a.k.a. Bruce Wayne) is one of the most iconic superheroes in the history of comics and the world. Although some may consider him a vigilante because of the way he takes justice into his own hands, he is an ally to the people of Gotham, bringing peace to the city in its darkest nights. The story of how Batman came to be can be quite complex and is seen in various versions but in most, Bruce is disgraced by the death of his parents: Thomas (owner of a massive Wayne company) and Martha Wayne. Therefore, as this essay progresses, I will like to analyze various aspects of Batman's biography and psychology such as "Home", how he was raised by his parents, their unexpected deaths, and all of the elements that made Bruce who he is today.
The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult. But it is clear the man’s logic is twisted; Abner Snopes provoked all incidents by himself to create a reason to excuse his desire for fires. The final scenes of the story suggest the justice was served, as the man was caught during his final crime. But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed. The story starts with the description of a trial, where Abner Snopes was accused in burning of his neighbor’s barn.
Also, Harry Potter was prepared to sacrifice himself in order to save the Wizarding World saying, “I open at the close” (Deathly Hallows, Rowling 698). Harry Potter was willing to give up his precious life so that other wizards would be able to live a happy, full life. Comparing Odysseus, who only sought revenge so that he might, “lay plans to kill our enemies” (Homer 1082). The only one Odysseus was fighting for was his family, which is somewhat selfless but mostly selfish as he could have fought harder for his men, instead of condemning them. On top of that all, Harry Potter had many loved ones dear to him die, yet he still persevered on and Voldemort uses it as an insult saying, “...You
One reason why is because jail would have killed them. Another reason, their criminal backgrounds are clean it was the first and last time they would commit a crime. Also, the harshness would drive them absolutely delirious in jail and would become psychopaths. Speaking of harshness the cells are wet, cold, dark, and the people would probably starve to death. In the second place, they might have
Whenever people think about hero, oftenly, they will think of soldiers, firefighters or some fictional character like superman and batman. Hero is someone who is noble, and worth people pay respect of. In other words, the word hero and victim are hardly mentioned together. However, in Stephen King’s novel, “Misery”, the character Paul is not only a victim but a truly hero to himself and also to many readers. He escapes from Annie Wilkes, the devil figure, fully based on himself as he is completely isolated from other people.
He had the “strength” to “smash through any bank,” but would not. His morals remained intact. Instead, he strove to help those around him and worked selflessly to fight against the evils. It would be almost impossible to find someone that selfless today. Everyone is so indulged in getting the best for themselves, and wanting to see themselves on the top, that they tend not be compassionate in the way Superman was.
The power of a man’s will The gods in The Iliad are superhuman beings or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes.
