Flash Gordon vs. Freddy Krueger

Abingdon, VA

Flash Gordon is the hero of a science fiction adventure comic strip originally drawn by Alex Raymond. First published January 7, 1934, the strip was inspired by and created to compete with the already established "Buck Rogers" science-fiction adventure strip (source: Wikipedia).

Freddy Krueger is a fictional character and the primary antagonist of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (1984-2010) film series. He appears in Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street" (1984) as a disfigured serial killer who uses a glove armed with razors to kill his victims in their dreams, causing their deaths in the waking world as well (source: Wikipedia).

Flash Gordon represents humanity's fascination with dreamlike speed and finesse, a hero that tackles villains with agility, laser-like tactics, and valiant leadership.

Freddy Krueger represents humanity's fascination with wrath, neglect, and cruelty, a villain that terrorizes society with nightmarish violence, stealth, and fear.

Both Flash Gordon and Freddy Krueger are larger-than-life imagination avatars, though Flash Gordon is more stylish.

The recent trendy appeal of avatar rivalry Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Freddy vs. Jason" (2003) suggests that stylistic comparisons between courage avatars such as Flash Gordon and Freddy Krueger represent human body imagery idealization.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
