Antiheroes have, of course, been around for a long time, including in, of all places, superheroes. The phrase "superhero anti-hero" may sound like an oxymoron but, in books, television, and movies, the merging of these types work entertainment wonders. <b>Which of the following superheroes, do you think best personifies the anti-hero?</b><br /><br />(According to the Oxford dictionary, an anti-hero is "a central character in a story, film, or drama who lacks conventional heroic attributes.") praise 72 12 1 comment 19638515 Dibyayan Chakravorty responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-14T08:45:44Z 2018-07-14T08:45:44Z Dibyayan Chakravorty dibyayan_chakravorty How about:<br /><br /><b><i>Super Anti-Heroes</i></b> 1 19638551 Nikolay Yeriomin responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-14T09:53:50Z 2018-07-14T09:53:50Z Nikolay Yeriomin nikolay_yeriomin FYC:<br /><a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">Darkman</a><br />1989 Version of the Batman, especially <a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">from Batman Returns</a> (which is far more murderous then that from Nolan's movies)<br />The Punisher: <a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">1989 version</a>, <a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">2004 version</a>, <a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">2008 version</a>, <a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">2016-2017 version</a>.&nbsp;<br /><a href="" rel="nofollow" title="Link:">Jessica Jones</a><br /><a href="" rel="nofollow">Oliver Queen/The Hood/Arrow/Green Arrow</a> 2 19638562 rubyfruit76 responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-14T10:27:04Z 2018-07-14T10:27:04Z rubyfruit76 rubyfruit76 Wow, this was really helpful.

Yours has a certain ring to and I like the subtle irony it so I'll definitely consider it.&nbsp;I like the original title because I love repetition and I'm thinking it might be more precise. I'm not sure, though. I'll sit with both for a while to decide which one I like better and which one I think fits better.

Also, I actually did see Tim Burton's 'Batman' a few times, saw 'The Dark Knight' films, and my ex-boyfriend was a huge Dark Knight fan from the time he was a child, long before the movies came out, and I remember, from what I learned from him, thinking that both Batmans were anti-heroes because they had dark moods and worldview and, like Nikolay said, both were traumatized and somewhat unstable. I see Superman as a typical hero. Batman has a moral code but he has none of the patriotic veneer, optimistic worldview, or happy demeanor, and often relishes moments of revenge, not only justice. He's a dark character in many ways, in many of his personifications, which is the opposite of a key conventionally heroic trait.&nbsp; 3 19639659 rubyfruit76 responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-15T02:27:27Z 2018-07-15T02:27:27Z rubyfruit76 rubyfruit76 Thank you so much!

I've not seen "Dark Knight Returns", but I've bee meaning to see it. I guess I'm used to the the Batman of the animated series, Arkham video games, Nolan movie trio, Burton movie duo, Schumacher movie duo and the campy 1960s television series. Now that I think about it, the Batman of DCEU is kind of shitty in the sense of that he brands criminals, and he actually tried to end Superman's life. I don't know what to express about the Heller show, because everybody is "crazy" in <i>Gotham</i> (except for Lucius Fox), and Mazouz's character is just sort of caught up in it all. It's like an eclectic, post-apocalyptic, over-the-top gift that keeps on giving. 2 19641185 Jeorj Euler responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-16T05:28:42Z 2018-07-16T05:28:42Z Jeorj Euler jeorj_euler The Mask is a smooth criminal.

It suffers from some of the same things that lots of television series do, such as character resurrections, plot holes and loose ends; elements to compensate for the lack of a fully-formed geared-up Batman occupational presence. The word to describe its draw would be "guilty pleasure". Maybe that is part of what is preventing it from being cancelled or quick-wrapped too. 2 19641623 NDbportmanfan 1 responded to "Live Poll: Superhero Anti-Heroes?" 2018-07-16T13:03:43Z 2018-07-16T13:03:43Z NDbportmanfan 1 ndbportmanfan_1 I said we can switch the option from Red Hood to Jason Todd to single in on one character.
