    Superman Hero

    or the best-fitting mental picture of a criminal? What comes to mind is due to the coding in a culture, or a rule-governed system of signs which are shared and used to generate and circulate meanings in and for that culture. Codes are used in order to convey meanings that constitute our cultural world, many of which are seen through television, films and other forms of media. In Season 1, Episode 7 of Superman: The Animated Series, the hero and villain relationship is clearly seen throughout the film. John Corben, a criminal that escaped from prison with the help from a doctor, turned to Luthor to help him with his deadly illness. The only way to ensure that he would survive was to implant Metallo into Corben’s body. Metallo contained kryptonite, one of Superman’s true weaknesses, and allowed him to have superhuman strength and agility. Luthor ordered Corben to destroy Superman, and report back to him when the task was accomplished. In order to draw distinction between heroes (Superman) and villains (Corben), film producers use many different elements such as lighting, appearance, and behavior. All in all, I argue that these subtleties allow individuals in a society to clearly define the differences between hero and villain within the film based on cultural norms. In John Fiske’s book, Television Culture (1987), he asserts that producers (and writers) use these techniques in order to provoke certain meanings and pleasures within that particular society. Fiske claims that…

    A hero can be classified by many things. A hero can be superman, a police officer, and even your mom, but what makes a hero? Is it someone who can fly or shoot laser beams from their eyes or someone who saves a baby from a burning building? I’ll admit some of these characteristics are far-fetched since I don’t know anyone who can fly or randomly saves babies on a normal day. All heroes, including super ones, all have something in common, they're admired for their courage or an outstanding thing…

    Luthor agrees only to release Superman's mother if he brings him Batmans head. Superman then storms in, underestimating Batman, not knowing that he has the weaponized kryptonite. After they throw each other against walls for an unsatisfying 5 minutes, Batman pulls out a staff tipped with a lethal amount of weaponized kryptonite. Right before Batman is about to finish off Superman, Superman pleads to “save martha”. Batman becomes very confused by this because Martha is the name of Batman’s Mother…

    battle Superman, a superhero whose powers include superhuman strength, vision, speed, and flight? That’s highly unlikely to happen! Looking from the other side how come Batman still remains to be such a fascinating superhero whose fame isn’t fading regardless not possessing the superhuman powers? So, naturally :-), I decided to compare these two superheroes in several categories and then to decide which one is better. 1. Round 1-The Technology; Every true fan of Batman knows that this…
