Media (Eco-Terrorism): Comics/Controversy

The fictional American comic book anti-heroine Poison Ivy (DC Comics) is a 'seductive eco-terrorist' who corrupts a place called Gotham City with her unique brand of 'anti-industrialization rhetoric' designed to compel voters to consider the devastating effects of eco-pollution (e.g., toxic-waste, global-warming, acid-rain, etc.).

Poison Ivy has been presented in Batman comics, cartoons, TV shows, and even movies!

Uma Thurman (the popular Hollywood actress) portrayed Poison Ivy in the George Clooney starring film "Batman and Robin" [1997].

The media therefore 'welcomes' Poison Ivy imagery, and we have to wonder how the circulation of reform-minded 'literary/cinematic avatars' affects voters' opinions about manmade anathemas such as mishandled toxic-waste and global-warming(!).

The more controversy there is in the media regarding what is politically 'acceptable/permissible/approp riate,' the more social dialogue is generated about general terrorism-negotiation related free-speech.

We always want Poison Ivy to be considered an anti-heroine, after all, and not a 'diplomat' of peaceful political change(!).

Do fundamentalist-Muslims who frown upon America's brand of 'liberal social dialogue' frown upon, for example, spiritually-controversial/libe ral films such as Martin Scorsese's "The Last Temptation of Christ" [1988]?

TrumpUSA might be much about media-related IQ (e.g., Al Jazeera).
