    inhabitants. Governments are putting their trust superheroes that when the time comes God forbid that they can save the day. Source of Hope I recently watched an episode of the CW’s Arrow which is a live action personification of DC comics character the Green Arrow, in 4x19 after criminal Brie Larvan was stopped and apprehended, when character Thea Queen exclaims “We have to be the beacon of hope (Sokolowski and Sullivan, 2016) This quote sums up why superheroes are as prominent as they are. They are a beacon of hope, what kind of hope? Hope for tomorrow, hope that for when the days are the darkest and body is at our side there is hope for brighter days. Superheroes also are a way for some people to feel safer. The idea of someone you do not personally know who is looking out for your safety during trying times is very comforting.

    believe that kick-butt female characters are all we need, but there are still many stereotypes that need to be addressed. Take a simple yet powerful, comic book trope affectionately called Women In Refrigerators. (WiR) This cliche is used when a female love interest or otherwise strong female character is killed, sexually assaulted, depowered or otherwise injured beyond repair by the villain. For no other reason besides angering our main character. Also, the woman's death provides vengeful…

There is one thing that connects both to them - is the desire to fight against evil. It is not a rare case that two contrasting characters from separate texts share similar traits.

In this situation, this quote does apply; however, the picture does not explain a story, but picture explains is body type.
