Transcript of Batman Prezi
Who is Batman
History Of Batman
Batman is a comic book hero who, after witnessing the murder of his parents, swore vengence by becoming a masked vigilante. He helps the city of Gotham clean up the streets dressed as Batman
Batman's first appearence was in 'Detective Comics #27'. The original story of Batman was that as a young boy he witnesses the murder of his parents and swears revenge on the man who did it and on all criminals in the city. Batman has no powers but instead makes use of his intellect, detective skills, wealth, his physical prowess and intimadation to solve his crimes.
Short Story Structure
The Ten Commandments of Detective Fiction
#1- The criminal must be someone mentioned in the early part of the story. ( Thoughts un-known)
Intro: The intro for the 80s Batman was the same for about every episode. An unnamed criminal, like a bank robber, or a classic criminal, like the Joker, would do something and then Batman would swoop in and send the criminal to jail.
Inciting Incident: The inciting incident also usually followed a trend. If the criminal was a classic one then he/she broke out of prison and go into hiding. Commissioner Gorden would use the Bat signal and tell Batman that the criminal broke out and then tell him one of the clues that the criminal left behind.
Rising Action: The rising action was the series of events that followed Batman searching for either more clues or people that were/are connected to that criminal. This part of the story usually took the longest and made the structure of the episode.
Climax: The climax of the episode was the section where Batman has found out the criminal's plan, hideout and the final fight of the episode with the criminal has begun.
Falling Action: The falling action in the episode generally is when Batman has won the battle with one of the many criminals and villians in the Batman universe and and has brought him into custody.
#2 The detective must not himself commit the crime.
Conclusion: The conclusion usually leaves Batman victorious in his fight and has him flee the scene as the police arive. Then just before the end of the episode he is either in the Batcave where a possible cliff hanger may happen or he is in his mansion discussing the nights events with his butler Alfred
Batman helps solve a crime, He does not participate in the dirty work.
#3 The stupid friend of the detective, the watson, must not conceal any thoughts which pass through his mind; his intelligence must be slightly, but very slightly, below that of the average reader.
Most of the Batman episodes in the 80s cartoon followed this commandment, there were a few odd ones that did not have this where the criminal in the beginning was just a typical robber or mugger. But for the most part it was always a villain that would be seen later in the episode.
Batman has Robin as his Watson
The Theme of Batman
The main theme in the Batman cartoon is 'Evil Never Triumphs.' This theme is prominent in every Batman series to date. For example, in one of the original comics and one of the episodes depicted from that comic, batman must face the super steroid injected Bane and actually gets his spine snapped. But even without Batman Bane is stopped some how by regular police officers, against all odds the bad guy came out the loser and good the winner.
Batman's costume is the one of the biggest and most prominent cases of symbolism in the series. This is because as a child Bruce Wayne was always afraid of bats, and after falling into an actual batcave he was put into shock. Years later, when he finally decides to become Batman, he uses the symbol of a bat to strike fear into hearts of criminals. The bat symbolizes pure fear and what it can do to a person.
Like Batman many of his rivals have also chosen objects as their costume design to symbolize something. The Joker for example uses a clown as his costume which, in his case, symbolizes his non-stop, and phycotic, smile which like Batman's bat also strikes fear into his victims.
Detective Fiction Genre
Batman falls under Action/Adventure, Mystery, Supernatural, Fantasy, and Thriller
The different conflicts in Batman are internal and external.
Batman has internal conflict usually when he is battling The Joker or Ra's al Ghul. When fighting The Joker Batman usually must decided whether or not to either save a women who he is intimate with or his adopted son and side kick Robin. This cause Batman conflict because he has to choose who will die and who will live. Battling wiht Ra's al Ghul ccauses conflict with Batman because Ra's has supernatural powers that can give Batman his true dream of being reunited with his parents at the cost of giving up being a superhero and letting crime rule.
External Conflict in Batman is pretty much in every episode whether he has to fight a villain or, in the case of Poison Ivy, he has to fight nature majority of Batman is him battling some kind of external conflict.
Irony is present in Batman mostly when he has to fight The Joker, because The Joker is always being silly and joyful when he fights. The Joker uses Verbal irony and Situational irony.
The Joker uses verbal irony usually when he is trying to give a sarcastic response to what ever is going on.
When The Joker uses situational irony it is for the most when he ha a gun to Batman's head and when he pulls the trigger a litttle flag comes out that says 'BANG!'
In the 80s Batman series most of the characters are very well developed and have their own personalities that are not close to any other character's. All of the main characters (ex-good guys & bad guys) are indirectly characterized. For example, no one in the show has every flat out said that The Joker is completely insane, however the audience can infer he is based upon the fact he gets joy out of other peoples misfortune and that he can not tell the difference between right and wrong.
Is Batman a Hard-boiled detective?
I think Batman is a hard-boiled detective because Bruce Wayne lives in Gotham City which is crawling with criminals and illegal activities. I also think this becasue Batman breaks many laws to solve the case he is on and he is very tough and intimidating.
