Ruzicka pointed out that although many heroes may have their differences, the one thing that they all have in common is “they always fight in the name of good, in the name of honest citizens, and they are always victorious” (Ruzicka 46). This is what makes them different that the supervillains we’ve come to know over the years. They also help create the superheroes mission, since they are often on the other side of the spectrum. We mentioned in class that heroes often had a reactive state of mind compared to a supervillain’s proactive mindset. Duncan and Smith touch on the supervillains of the superhero world, calling them a “rogues gallery” that would often come back and try to mess with the hero, all while having their own agenda (Duncan and Smith 229). Superheroes are known for not wanting to change the status quo, but supervillains play the role of trying to change it. Although I am a gigantic Batman fan, I still to this day have no idea what Joker’s mission is in Gotham, other than to oppress Batman and create chaos. This is true for some villains, but others want to rule the world, like Darkseid. The villains also help move the plot of the story, helping the superhero define the qualities inside him that makes him super and wanting to battle evil. We can’t talk about superheroes…

    the story of a boy turned hero by a moment of senseless trauma, grown into a man lost between identities, facing off against a villain with a mirrored backstory and a terrible plan to make the whole world orphans. Now one of the most recognized heroes in the world with his own branded video game, Dynamo can spout catchphrases brainstormed by his PR guy, Marco, and take selfies with the tourists—but he can’t put together a résumé or make friends as the quieter, humble, sweet Jerry Craig.

    It’s just another day for me. Another day to be slayed by the knight and watch in envy as he carries the princess to ‘safety’. My life is only a fairytale. A fairytale in which I am the villain and the knight is the hero. I never wanted to be born like this and I mostly certainly don’t want it to continue happening. However, it cannot come to a halt.

    However, this conception of the superhero myth is stereotyped towards the great stories we read in comic books, where heroes are inspirations and the pillar of hope for society.

The blue flash of lighting, coming from Thor’s hammer, stands out from the overall darker scene. After the lighting snags the viewers’ attention, his eyes are averted directly into the glowing red eyes of the robotic supervillain. The glowing eyes of the robotic supervillain immediately…
