Funny man movie bad: Why the Joker movie is problematic. Rachel Miller nails it. 18 PM Okay I've pinpointed exactly what it is that bothers me about a Joker movie I don't want to watch a movie that shows us the trauma that drove the Joker insane I don't want to watch a well-intentioned but unstable man get bullied until he turns into a mass murderer. I don't want to watch a man get rejected by women as an excuse for his future of domestic abuse. I don't want to be shown what a poor, unfortunate underdog this man was who was sadly forced by circumstances and that nasty Batman to take up a life of crime I don't want to have sympathy for a man best known for his robbery, murder and arguable rape shoved down my throat for two hours. I don't want this to be sold as a relatable story that can happen to anyone with a bad enough day, and I don't want to be around any of the lonely white boys who relate to it Do you see what I'm getting at? I don't know if there ever is a good time for a movie that paints mass murder as the logical conclusion of a socially isolated, debateably neurodivergent white man being failed by the system, but I feel as though this is not fucking it. I don't want to see a movie that idolizes the Joker when there are plenty of easily armed fuckboys who already think he has the right idea, without adding a tragic backstory to elicit sympathy I ALSO don't want the narrative line to be drawn between mental illness and mass murder, as is so often done in modern eras to Batman villains, and as is so common with the Joker in particular I don't want it to get highlighted and underlined in Sharpie as well. God I'm sick of the Joker. 6:09 AM Sep 6, 2019 Twitter Web App Funny man movie bad

"You know it never stops.": 6 points 5 hours ago I have explained very basic concepts to my family before in a video game. Problem is the context. In the context of a video game their brains shut down and they wouldn't understand what a circle is permalink source embed save save-RES parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply hide child comments 10 points 4 hours ago Speaking of context, taken with the language as is, I could translate the sentence like this: "I have explained very basic concepts to my family, who only exists in a video game, before, in a video game." If you define context as a physical place and so take it more literally, the following also becomes more of a mindfuck to imagine; their brains shut down, trying to empathize with the idea of a brain shutting down is always going to produce some bizarre situations Better, in the context of Batman villains, the derangement of Mr. Pyg gives you the capacity to imagine that there are other insane people who really have been de-brained and placed in the prison of the video game A whole nightmarish fantasy by itself.

Evening Gothamites! This summer marks the 75th anniversary of the Batman villain Two-Face! Let's continue to learn more about the evolution of this character: After Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams brought Two-Face out of obscurity in the 1970s, overnight he became one of Batman's most favored and features rogues in his infamous gallery. As Crisis on Infinite Earths was published in the mid 1980s, many characters were due a revamp of their somewhat outdated origin and backgrounds. For Batman, that was the job of Frank Miller, who brought back the 'dark' in the Dark Knight in arcs such as 'Batman: The Dark Knight Returns' and 'Batman: Year One' in 1986-1987. Batman coming back to his original Gothic roots meant the same change in the figures in his mythos, including the now resurrected Two-Face. Andrew Helfer in 1990 wrote Harvey Dent a new origin story to align with the "modern" Batman mythos in Batman Annual (Vol 1) 14, giving this character a tragic origin story. As Commissioner Gordon, District Attorney Harvey Dent and the Batman agree to create a successful policing system, secretly the mental state of Dent is deteriorating ever since he visited his elderly father in a senior citizen home. Now when Harvey wants to visits his abusive drunken dad one last time, Christopher Dent gives his son Harvey a two headed coin, which brings to the surface in this story Harvey's bipolar disorder and intense paranoia. After Maroni splashes acid on Dent in court, his face being horridly disfigured, transforming Dent into the villain Two-Face. He makes good or evil decisions with the use of the now manually scarred coin his father gave him. But with the flip of his coin, he chooses to stay in Arkham Asylum to get well, has plastic surgery cure his face and begins a family with his wife Gilda. But the story ends when a voice in his head says he can never turn back to being one man; he violently destroys his face, clawing at his plastic surgery with his hands. Dent now knows he will forever be Two-Face, his mind can have it no other way. Throughout the summer we will look at other interpretations of Harvey Dent - Two-Face outside of comics in this spotlight, so stay tuned! โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ‡: Thees beholoer the by Steve all JohnCatanza AdrieneKy - writer- Peneiller Colorist Evening Gothamites!

The ORIGIN That Was: MADE FROM CLAY! * Queen Hippolyta longed for a child. Before she was murdered by her mate over 10,000 years ago, Hippolyta was a pregnant cavewoman. When the Goddesses resurrected her from the Well of Lost Souls and made her their new nation's Queen, she was without a child. * The Olympian Gods whispered to her to mold the mystical clay from the shores of her island paradise home of Themyscira into the form of a little baby girl. Six Greek Gods (Aphrodite, Hestia, Athena, Demeter, Artemis and Hermes) granted that clay form life and blessed her with wondrous powers; thus creating the perfect Amazon, as she was born of no man. *** THE ORIGIN THAT IS: As of 2011, with the New 52 and Rebirth, Diana is the daughter of Zeus, the King of the Gods. She was told the lie of her clay origin to protect her from the wrath of Hera. Wonder Woman is an immortal demi-goddess, half Olympian, half Amazon. The DCEU version of the character follows this origin. *** There is an eerie beautiful image @gal_gadot shared. Even under all of that, she shines through! I would imagine this was done for the life-size replica of her made for display at various conventions, or possibly used for detailed figures such as Hot Toys, or maybe she is getting a wax figure that will be displayed at Madame Tussaud's! *** And CLAYFACE is a Batman villain who possesses a clay-like body and has shape-shifting abilities. *** mywonderwoman girlpower women femaleempowerment MulherMaravilha MujerMaravilla galgadot unitetheleague princessdiana dianaprince: DE FROM CLAY ODWONDERVAUGHN GALAGADOT SHARED THIS THROWBACK OND R OMAN IMAGE!
