In recent weeks, as calls went mainstream defund police, pop culture rethink critics and fans as Hollywood heroizes policemen. Legal procedurals and shoot-em-up action movies have long been a distorted perception of justice in America presented, in which the police have almost always positioned itself as the good guys. This stories “good cop” are rarely balanced with stories of systemic racism in the criminal justice system. The “bad guys” they pursue are often people of color, their characters undeveloped about their crime. In this time to calculate the long running show cops and PD live widely watched canceled. Actors and writers who have contributed to the police novel to criticize their work and money for the donation NAACP Legal Defense Fund. The parents speak gentle descriptions of canine cops in the children’s television show Paw Patrol. And film Ava DuVernay ARRAY Collective Law Enforcement Accountability Project (LEAP) begins to highlight stories of police brutality and against a part of the narrative. But, as we engage in this conversation-overdue about the application of the law, it is high time that we talk about beliebtestenen characters in the film, who decides the parameters of justice and often prescribe with superhero strength. The cops superhero capes dominated popular culture over the last ten years, the films have grossed the highest fixtures and symbols for more than just our children. They are beacons of inspiration: protesters dressed as Spider-Man and Batman have emerged in recent demonstrations Black Lives Matter. Yet, what are superheroes, but policemen with capes that justice Enact with their power? With a few notable exceptions (more on that later), Stella broke most of the stories of American superhero straight, white men who either function as an extension of a justice system or as vigilantes with no control of their forces. They usually have some kind of relationship with the Provisional Government The Avengers work for the secret agency S.H.I.E.L.D .; Batman takes orders from Gotham Police Commissioner Gordon; even the wicked members of the Suicide Squad perform government contracts in exchange for prison sentences commuted. And even if the superheroes work outside of the justice system, sometimes they are idolized by the police because they are able to bypass the law “to get the job done.” In fact, the police officers in real time, the symbolism of this Rogue Anti heroes take over. The Punisher, a vigilante brutal introduced in a comic Spider-Man 1974, who played the series in 2017 Netflix, an emblem for a while ‘police and soldiers was to-point, felt the need in Marvel, this idolatry in the pages of his comic book address. In a story in 2019, a group of police Fanboys leads to the Punisher and says: “We believe in you” It ‘a sport Punisher skull sticker on his car. The Punisher tearing the label off and says: “We are not the same thing. You took an oath to uphold the law. Helping people. I have a long time ago. Do not do what I do. No one does,” says another police officer “…. like it or not, people have started something that showed us how to” the representative Punisher If Batman ignored commands to a bigger problem than superhero stories and goes rogue, are there to judge any organ control, both the influence of Bruce Wayne bias he brings to court and how. heroes like Iron Man occasionally feel guilt for the victims they cause, but in the end still strengthen once again and draw the moral lines. In the real world, now eroded tolerance for the act with impunity law. Those who demand the dismantling of modern police station, on the opposite side for the lack of officials impact that killed black people like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain and many others without firing before any action was taken or pursued, or at least substantially delayed and public pressure. While these talks penetrated ends dominate the news, it is increasingly clear that both the “Arm of the Law” or vigilantes can survive without serious revision narrative. Who is to define justice, for which the most successful films Marvel and DC Comics rock the question. Captain America: Civil War and Batman vs. Superman :. But Dawn of Justice briefly floated the idea of superhero supervision both devolve into fights Quip CGI-filled fist. (In all fairness, the story explores the civil war in the Marvel Comics more reflective of the depth of this socio-political debate.) What’s more, since the creators and stars of these films were in the past, the white men , it’s amazing, hard to believe that so few expect the issues of systemic racism much, because embedded sexism, homophobia, transphobia and other forms of intolerance in the justice system or the inherent distortion could wear this superhero with themselves as patrolling the streets, or the universe. A new kind of hero There’s a little ‘history of settlements in black superhero movies with police work. Blade, Wesley Snipes superhero film of 1998, launched the movie superhero boom that we are today what his first Marvel blockbuster. The film, written and directed by white men, references tensions between the black community and the police. In one scene, two policemen struggling to walk on the blade, which is clearly a monstrous vampire and instead leave the Blade shooting. Lama turns and asks, “Are you out of fucking mind?” It plays as a moment disposable, but based on decades rings true. (Marvel announced last year that the two-time Oscar award Mahershala Ali in the restart of the blade does not matter.) More recently, racial injustice was the focus for some superhero movies. The most obvious example of this change is the Black Panther, Ryan Coogler 2018 superhero film that takes the suppression of BIPOC people around the world as an important subject. In this film, Black Panther, also known as T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) governs the Wakanda, independent, scientifically advanced African country freed from colonialism. Now it is against a would-be usurper named Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), who argues that Wakanda should abandon their policy of isolationism and help reduce the systematic oppression around the world. T’Challa finally discovered that his father and his father Killmonger in 1990 had a similar debate. If Killmonger father came to America as a spy for use, he was radicalized by racism seen there. She suffered from Wakanda smuggling of weapons to help blacks people in America. If T’Challa father Killmonger faced father, he says, “their leader. Community flooded with drugs and weapons have been killed. They are overly monitored and imprisoned. Worldwide, our people are suffering because they do not fight back the tools . “Killmonger father eventually loses his life for his political position. T’Challa Bow his nemesis can be recognized correctly: While Killmonger and his father broke the laws and put in place for their cause, their belief that black people historically the tools to fight the systematic oppression really was’ve disappeared. T’Challa finally reaches a compromise between these two points of view to represent: He uses his privilege with respect to Empower people who were detained by colonialism and racism, but finding non-violent way to do this. At the end of the film, T’Challa open a community center in Oakland Killmonger hometown. He asks his girlfriend a social awareness program to drive for the black community and its sister tech-savvy an educational program that performs the same kind of investment in the Community what activists call the police budget in social support systems to distribute now request. A Black Panther sequel is in the works of Coogler, and the public can look forward to a further deepening of this tension between the police and community support. If superheroes and police clash is not just that superheroes like the members of the law enforcement authorities act; sometimes they interact directly with them. Spider-Man has long been a complicated relationship with the police in New York. Last year, Spider-Man video game again received unanimous thrust upon what many critics as “copaganda.” In this game Peter Parker is fantasizing a fan of the police, even to be “Spider-cop.” He spends a lot of New York of fixing the match surveillance towers for police. But the introduction of Miles Morales, who made his debut in comics in 2011, could offer opportunities the conflictual relationship between New York and the police to explore. Miles which is half black, half Puerto Rican, the son is a police officer. secret identity not in Spidervers, Father Miles’ knows his son: In 2018, the animated film Spider-Man. Miles spend a lot of efforts for the love of his father for him and his dislike of Spider-Man as a vigilante in line from the movie. One Spidervers sequel is hope in the works, and many fans that focus more on Miles (and less of Peter) and immediately with this race. Before that, a video game Miles Morales come, hopefully with a more sophisticated take on the NYPD as the game went on. With a single, Spider Man is a city with a young black man disproportionately inflict a recent painful history of trauma political stop-and-Frisk on young blacks and brown men, it will be a surprising lapse if it is not the case. But the superhero property that most directly with corruption is involved in Watchmen police. In 1986 graphic novel by Alan Moore, vigilantes who believe they have the right to fight for their own moral code and often lived despicable bigot or megalomaniacs prove. addressed a special table of so-called heroes of a very similar appearance turned the last video, we saw police firing rubber bullets and tear gas against the demonstrators. However, the comic was a product of his time and his stories, all is not aged well. Damon Lindelof of the 2019 HBO series adapted from the “remix” comic of the original story and serves as a spiritual sequel. (In recognition of their importance for the present moment, HBO all episodes come in little free on the holiday weekend Juneteenth to see.) In contrast to the story of Moore, a history of white men in the final analysis, the struggle for power, Lindelof show begins with the 1921 Tulsa race Massacre. When Victor Luckerson in New York, writes that event was “the most significant event of the terrorist events in the country where the Stadt, Black Wall Street’von aircraft was hit and burned by white racists on the ground, made from feed National Guard . it is a true story that is left of the school, one, race riot ‘mislabelled and deliberately forgotten. “This misremembering of history is a theme of the show. After this preface, show fast forward relative to Tulsa today and mainly centers on Angela (Regina King), a cop, a white nationalist terrorist group pursue with the KKK. To combat them, the police officers started their faces and takes superhero alter ego to cover. The presentation of the police is complicated: Angela, a black woman, who is a police officer and hero of the show. She makes some shocking things, like providing the crap out of a suspect in an interrogation room and the FBI. But as you unravel the secrets, it is clear that the real purpose of Watchmen is to control one of the acclaimed stories in the world of comics and re-evaluate from the perspective of historically excluded Black Legend. so the show is the connective tissue that binds damages committed against people of color from Tulsa massacre of racism that Angela is interested to do with the present. blacks heroes to rise to the darkest force to meet, one of most superhero stories is ignored: racism. The way forward, if Hollywood is to do better to tell these stories, the creators of color need the reins are given to tell them. It is worth mentioning that used a variety of writer’s room during Lindelof, it took probably get on a story so ambitious Greenlit his name and cache as the creator of Lost and remains. Similarly, while the director of Spidervers, Peter Ramsay, was the first black man to win an Oscar for animation, before the two white men approached Sony (the film produced ended), Lego directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller to make the man Spider with animated possibilities. Authors must also consider the idea of going in that they are required to respect the intellectual property constraints obsolete. These days, some big-budget projects to go ahead, if they are not based on existing IP. But the success of Watchmen suggests that developers can grab these famous people, and also weave a new story with a new policy and a new perspective, with only fragments of what it was before. Just like the Watchmen series is a radical departure from a dusty Reagan era graphic novel is Black Panther and Spidervers borrowed names and back stories of their main characters in comics, but it has taken these characters in new directions and ambitious. Only when these creative freedom and promoted Hollywood offers more opportunities to BIPOC Creator and white creators use the support creativity in the capital that are overlooked too often we get more superhero stories, adequately address the complexity of justice in America.
