Batman has been one of the world’s most beloved superheroes since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Clad in his dark cowl and cape, he has captured the imagination of millions with his single-minded mission to create a better world for the people of Gotham City by fighting crime, making use of expert detective skills, high-tech crime-fighting gadgets, and an extensive network of sidekicks and partners. But why has this self-made hero enjoyed such enduring popularity? And why are his choices so often the subject of intense debate among his fans and philosophers alike? Batman and Ethics goes behind the mask to shed new light on the complexities and contradictions of the Dark Knight’s moral code. From the logic behind his aversion to killing to the moral status of vigilantism and his use of torture in pursuit of justice (or perhaps revenge), Batman’s ethical precepts are compelling but often inconsistent and controversial. Philosopher and pop culture expert Mark D. White uses the tools of moral philosophy to track Batman’s most striking ethical dilemmas and decisions across his most prominent storylines from the early 1970s through the launch of the New 52, and suggests how understanding the mercurial moral character of the caped crusader might help us reconcile our own. A thought-provoking and entertaining journey through four decades of Batman’s struggles and triumphs in time for the franchise’s 80th anniversary, Batman and Ethics is a perfect gateway into the complex questions of moral philosophy through a focused character study of this most famous of fictional superheroes.

Exzalander: a forbidden name, chosen by the gods themselves to signify their warrior, the person who will reunite Anarkhane's stone to return balance to Maldahl and conquer the dark of Katahl's reign. But where is she? Having been banished centuries before, many have given up hope of her ever returning or even having existed to begin with. The CODM prophecy becomes a nice tale told to make people appreciate the good times. However, war is coming. The lord Katahl is no bedtime story; he has dwelt for years uncounted in the north kingdom, behind the safety of an impenetrable barrier that prevents even time from entering, building an army intent on destroying them all. Kirsten Vai: Average teenager, obnoxious, outspoken, though not as rude as some. When Kirsten receives P.E. detention, it feels as though life can't get any worse, when in reality, that's just the beginning of her troubles when it becomes apparent that the murderer, who has been all over the news, is killing his way across half of Europe in order to find her. Despite her insistence that she doesn't know the man or why he has shown such an interest in her, Inspector Stevenson remains convinced that they are connected and seems determined to prove that the recent deaths are somehow her fault. The strange thing is, she feels that she is to blame. From the moment she hears about the killer, she becomes fixated with him. The Police think she's crazy, the killer thinks she's some missing princess from another world and she'd rather crawl in a hole and pretend none of it's happening; unfortunately for her, that isn't an option. Destined since before birth to restore the gem of creation and return power to the ancient gods, she sets out on the quest to find the lost shards of Anarkhane's stone. With unlikely help from fairies, dragons, a priest and a police inspector, she seeks to fulfil her destiny, not because she really wants to, but because she has no choice. She can neither go home to earth nor exist on Maldahl, because once Katahl discovers who she is, he will stop at nothing to blot her out of existence.
