People can relate to Batman because all of us have faced challenges in our lives that we somehow overcome. Superman was sent off as a baby and is too little to remember the loss of his parents so he is not able to endure the pain that Batman has undergone. Our problems may not be as big as Batman’s problems were, but none the less we are still human and go through our own battles. Just as we overtime conquer our problems, Batman conquers his using his natural human ability. This makes Batman more realistic because Superman has supernatural powers that are un-relatable to humans.
In conclusion Odysseus and Batman are both epic heroes. They have their similarities and differences but all in all I believe they are both just as strong. Even thought Batman might have an advantage since he was born in more modern days and has advanced technology such as gadgets, cars, helicopters and etc. But being that Odysseus was born way before Batman I think they’re just as
An outlaw hero is the opposite, they know right from wrong, but don’t follow the law. Another opposition is that an outlaw hero has distrust within civilization. I want to analyze Spiderman and show examples of how he represents an outlaw hero. Spiderman is the epitome of every kid’s dream come true. He goes from being an average, everyday nerd, to a superhero who always saves the day.

Dean fears that he’ll become a child molester because he was molested, but Dean quickly gets over this phobia when he does research on molesters. Dean motivations for all this is wanting to be a better person. Even though Dean had various motivation’s for wanting to overcome his phobia there are two that standout the most to me. The first one is the fact that he was molested when he was a child.
He is born and then he is separated from his dear mother. Christopher is brought up by his father and is living his life without his mother, assuming she is dead (26). His life is very unusual because Christopher believes he can achieve many goals and tasks as well. However, the people around him seem to have no faith in him. When he wants to do ‘Level A’ exams, the principal thinks he is incapable of doing so (43-45).
Once on Earth, he was raised by a normal family, unaware of his origins or powers. Once he learned of his powers, he had the choice of how to use them. Therein lies the heart of the matter: While Batman chose to fight crime to avenge a personal wrong, Superman chose a life of sacrifice because he felt a moral duty to use his extraordinary powers for good. Superman could have chosen to
Batman as a Cultural Icon The superhero has permeated American culture for more than a century. Graphic novels depicting heroes like Superman, Green Lantern, and The Flash grab the imagination, tapping into both the reader’s deep seated longing for the ideal and his fantasies of titanic power. The exception to the god-in-tights trope that otherwise defines the genre is The Batman. Unlike his iconic foil, Superman, Batman fights to the best of his ability without powers. Ironically, it’s this that makes him more powerful as a character.
In order to protect the little ones from the beast, he makes an offering “for the beast.”(151), creating the basis of a religion. Similarly as to most religions which control its followers by fear, Jack uses the little one’s fear of the beast in order to accumulate power. Jack in a way becomes a religious leader when he offers “a gift”(151) to the beast. Jack knows that the little are terrified of the beast, and even though the little ones fear Jack as their leader, they entrust him because he keeps the beast away. Even though the beast does not exist, the fear in the little ones’ minds quickly leads them into believing “it’s real” (184).
In all fictional stories about superman he is considered a superhero because he can fly, he is extraordinarily strong, and he the only thing that can stop him is kryptonite. Reyes seems to be working as hard and fast as he is physically able, to send home such a large amount of money back home each week. He cannot
Batman, though a character, is a very realistic figure who has problems like anyone, bills, laundry even speeding tickets. Bruce Wayne faced huge issues early in his life when his parents died, and they continue every night he fights evil. We relate to Batman because we have all face challenges that we somehow overcome. Though our own problems may not be as big, we are all like the Dark Knight in some way. He was a normal man who faces problems and conquers them, while becoming an awesome hero.
