Today we discussed a bit about the combat myth as it relates to Batman/Joker, Beowulf/monsters and God/Satan. Then, we started reading our first graphic novel, Kingdom Come.
For homework: finish chapter 1
Look back at this quote from the Batman/Joker Combat Myth article:
“In his discussion of sky and storm gods in Patterns in Comparative Religion, Mircea Eliade points out that, whether it is Zeus atop Mount Olympus or thousand-eyed Indra in his heavenly realm, such deities are often the watchful guardians of the moral order and the administers of retribution upon transgressors.”
In the comments of the blog, answer the following:
-Who is the Yahweh of the story? Use quotes from the book to establish why.
-Draw connections between this character and God/Jesus
-Why does Norman expect an Armageddon?
