In an unpredictable world where so many people often feel powerless, companies such as Marvel and DC comics provide a much needed escape from reality through the use of extraordinary fictional characters, such as the Green Arrow and the Flash. These two DC characters differ greatly from each other, and in their own way they each represent opposite sides of the superhuman realm. The Flash (A.K.A Barry Allen) represents a more familiar part of what has become defined as a hero.

When a boating accident stranded him on a chinese prison island and killed his father, Oliver spent five years fighting for survival until he returned home hell bent on revenge and saving his city.

To take a case in point, if the individual becomes emotionally invested in a character, then the character’s actions seem more credible, ethical, and logical. This…
