Batman: the Riddler's gauntlet
Posted in the Entertainment Forum
#1 Nov 11, 2012
The Riddler is one of Batman's most insidious foes because he terrorizes society not with terroristic brutishness but with confounding riddles designed to trap human frailties regarding governance decision-making.
The Riddler could defeat the fictional avatar Wolverine by trapping him with the following riddle: "If I was invisible, your wrath towards me would be...senseless."
The Riddler could defeat the fictional avatar Poison Ivy by using the following riddle: "If no one has tried my recipe, I have a secret wealth that is immune to your social poisons."
The Riddler could defeat the fictional avatar the Joker by using the following riddle: "If I do not hear your joke, I will not be amused, and hence your joke is dependent on a sensitive audience!"
In other words, the Riddler represents intellectual word-play that perhaps figuratively reflects the species comforts symbolized in infotainment-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Quiz Show" (1994).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
