    Beowulf A Hero

    • 1429 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Beowulf more than likely had to prove and work to gain such an honorable title. He’s shown to be worthy of that title, as he uses his power to help people rather than use it for his own selfish gain. Daredevil is very similar in this regard as well. There are many upon many adaptations of this character, but in almost all aspects of his character his job as a lawyer plays a vital part in his character. Matt Murdock, the man behind the Daredevil mask, is a defense lawyer who defends the innocent. He is not a lawyer for the money, in fact in the Netflix show Matt Murdock turns down working at a law firm because he disagrees with the grey morals of the company, instead he creates an independent law firm with his friend and law partner, Foggy Nelson. Matt Murdock is a lawyer because he believes in the justice system. In a society where movements like Black Lives Matter exist there is a huge importance placed upon justice, and what better represents justice than a lawyer? Being a lawyer is highly respected in society due to the nature of the job. In the Anglo-Saxon and American society being in a position of high importance is greatly prized as that position is not acquired through doing the bare minimum. One has to prove themselves and work to be important to society like Beowulf and Daredevil are. This proves both of these characters to be worthy heroes for the society they are…

    If you've been living under a rock, you may have missed last Friday's release of the new Marvel Comics series Jessica Jones on Netflix. Starring Krysten Ritter in the titular role, this series lives up to last year's hit Netflix/Marvel series, Daredevil, and then some. Jessica isn't your average superhero, especially because of the lack of costume and codename, but mostly because she isn't much of a hero at all. Running a crappy private investigation firm aptly named 'Alias,' Jessica is an…

    women as soft and men as powerful. Religion is truly seen as sublime, gothic structures reaching an infinity, fires of hell calling forth the sinners, striking fear. To illustrate these ideals, there must be a focus on historical details and the present. Matthew Lewis’ “The Monk” and season two of Netflix’s production of Daredevil showcase connected portrayals of the beautiful and the sublime, both holding a foundation in these beliefs, especially with the ideas of sublime aspects in femininity…

    I think daredevils definitely have fear. Anytime you embark on an activity that can claim your life, you will have some level of fear. However, the difference between daredevils and the rest of us, is that they have harnessed a way to continue to take action despite their fears. You can scour the internet and found probably hundreds of hacks for overcoming fear. But the truth is, the only thing that daredevils do that many of us don't, is make the choice to accept the fear and do the…

    The line of people stretched out as far as I could see, all dripping sweat in the sweltering Georgia heat. I was unsuccessfully trying to find a patch of shade and simantamously doubting my rather reckless decision to go on one of the most scary roller coasters in the whole amusement park. As if on a cue, a chorus of screams could be heard coming from above, although whether they were from joy or pure terror I couldn't tell. Either way, the exit gate suddenly looked very appealing. I leaned…

    Kevin Smith, Joe Quesada, and Jimmy Palmiotti. The part of the story I would like to focus on is Matt Murdock’s anger. In the comic, Daredevil seems to snap and become aggressive against allies. He is shown as depressed and enraged and using this part of the character is useful to show that he is a tragic hero. I am using this as a primary source because the comics are the original sources for Daredevil’s heroic traits and character development. The comics from Marvel can all be considered…
