STAR WARS!

I hope it is not just me, but I find Reagan's "Star Wars" defense plan to be quite idiotic. It is extremely difficult for me to believe that a mass group of people seriously thought that the government was going to place some sort of missile mechanism in space that would shoot bombs out of the air. Yet people did! And this leads me to question our intelligence as a human race. We are so quick and eager to accept anything told to us by some "authority," and so rarely do we appear to hold the same analytical nature that distinguished us from the rest of the primate order. I believe the moment we allowed it to become common law to merely accept and not question is the moment we may have failed as a species. We freely allowed the Secret Invasion to occur and the Skrulls presence in our world is our own punishment. Long live the Skrull Empire!!!

Wonder Woman

The struggle to produce a Wonder Woman film says much about the challenge represented by the Amazon Warrior/Princess who does not need to be rescued. Despite the growth of women’s role in society, we still assume a paternal and maternal model for men and women's in society. While Wonder Woman is not barred from motherhood, she is not seeking to place herself within the familial framework in an obvious way.

Wonder Woman is one of the key characters from DC, yet she has not had the iconic stories similar to Batman (The Dark Knight Returns, The Killing Joke, or Year One) or Superman ( Greatest Stories or Red Son) in print. Instead, many people know abo…

why blame comics for societal failure

Comic books are often blamed for societal failure. Comics are the perfect excuse for a child's bad behavior. Comic books are often violent and very influential. Kids these days look for role models and some of the role models they find happen to be in comics. Parents also hate to place blame on themselves for their children acting out. This is why they look towards comics to blame. It seems like no one ever fesses up to any of their mistakes and people look for a reason to cover them up. Comics cannot be continued to cover up or mistakes. We need to start getting our acts together and realize we are the ones who need to take responsibility for our actions. If society is that influenced by comics we definitely have a major problem.
