Life

Life is about learning, preparing and training, experiencing, maintaining, holding up, and getting through. One is never all grown up, just seasoned.

Women

Women see a man and want him. When they get him, and then spend all of their time trying to change him. Wants he is changed, he is not interesting anymore because he is not the man you sought out in the first place. A relationship is a promise, so adapt to each other and try your best to keep your promise.

The Scarecrow

Many people, especially kids have been reading comics and they have picked a favorite character. Superheroes are being adored by many people because of their super amazing powers and special talents that surprise many. Although, when there are superheroes then there are villains; they are the rebels in society by making things bad in their own selfish ways.

One of the known villains is the Scarecrow. He is one of the villains in Gotham City from where the superhero Batman fought him in Batman comic book. His first appearance was in the year 1941 comic of the Batman series. The real name of Scarecrow is Jonathan Crane, which was in his early life found himself as the target of bullies that calls him Scarecrow because of his looks. In the present life, he studied psychology and biology because of his amazing intelligence; he went to Gotham University as a professor. His teachings were unsafe which caused him to be dismissed, so he took a revenge by wearing Scarecrow mask and frighten several University’s regents to death by spraying his specialize gas that made them see scary faces.

In the fight against Batman during the Scarecrow reign of terror, where in the end, he was a psychopath that only fear was the Dark Knight himself.

Scarlet Pimpernel

Scarlet Pimpernel is an enigmatic leader of a secret league composed of 20 English aristocrats.  He is, taking away the disguise, a baronet in England, named Sir Percy Blakeney, married to a beautiful Frenchwoman named Marguerite St. Just.  He spearheaded the “League of the Scarlet Pimpernel” while disguised as an obtuse-minded yet wealthy man who has an extreme interest in his personal appearance and clothing.  He is a hero of the oppressed French aristocrats whose lives were constantly threatened and subjected to execution by being sent to the guillotine.  His main enemy is Citizen Chauvelin, a new French envoy to England, who deviously blackmailed the hero’s wife for help in uncovering the true identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel in exchange for the life of his wife’s brother Armand. 

Plot-wise, the hero created his own character in this adventure novel.  Noone coerced him to be such or cunningly created him (like in several comic hero stories), save for the pervading tyranny in his time.  Authorship-wise, he was created by Baroness Emma Magdolna Rozália Mária Jozefa Borbála “Emmuska” Orczy de Orczi, who was not only a British novelist but a notable playwright and visual artist (painter) as well.  This novel entitled with the same name as the hero is set in 1792, at the onset of the French Revolution.

The character’s weakness as a baronet is his natural flair for being a dandy, as his wife early noticed.  His weakness as a hero is his disability to reveal his other, real self to his beloved wife, which led to the twist in the story.

If we may call charisma to bring staunch Englishmen to be daring in their advocacy to stop the French tyranny, and the bold commitment to two largely different characters while keeping mum about it from his wife and yet triumphing to keep their marriage, as powers, then those are the Scarlet Pimpernel’s powers.

SPRING-HEELED JACK

Not all Superheroes have good and handsome faces at all times. They can be ugly, but in good nature to help the needy. This is what Spring-heeled Jack is; one of the most curious and persistence in all paranormal creatures back in 19th century in Sheffield, England.

He is also known in United States in 1995 and has a similarity in Chile called “La Vuida” or “The Widow” in 1940s up to 1950s. Although, Spring-heeled Jack seems like motivated as a theft more like a mischief and nothing more than a cruel hoaxes. His story was change from source to source like trying to identify the entire part of the story that can briefly describes its ability that can take to an enormous leaps and frighten people. In fact Spring-heeled Jack is no good on women. People would say that he’s a “devil-like” that goes on the top of the roof. Children would describe him as “all dark with red eyes with white suit badges on it. He is also known as the ‘Terror of London” because of this.

Spring-heeled Jack is just a supernatural character who lives in England that was created with some pranksters and/ or others would say adopted on some old religious zealot who dances on the top of the roof. They way he gets on the roofs (jumping) is how he got named.

PENNY DREADFUL

 Many of us already knew about superheroes especially as kids who use to do what their favorite character does; wearing costumes, create some action scene and saying their famous line. These are proven that they love superheroes and even collecting some action figures. Many superhero characters can be seen right now and most of it are in the movies that are in live characters. People love superheroes because of their amazing abilities that no one has.

The first sign of a superhero character was one of the known superhero characters “Penny Dreadful” in 18th century series fiction book in British time. It’s a horror, romantic, an adventure and full of mystery of stories and this name was given to a Victorian age, which was produced in a book that is contained of bloodthirsty narrative crime. This story line was published on cheap paper geared to the for working class adults, but by the 1850s the serial stories were aimed exclusively at teenagers. This was created in the United States and renewed in the Dime Novels, which has filled in American stories in Wild West scenes and stories about famous criminals. In fact, these fiction stories were absorbed in magazines, radio dramas and even movies too before it ends out.

As of today, penny dreadful is back in its next evolution of series fiction; the internet provided a kind of media for creating this series in a short fiction and an ongoing type so that the readers can come back for more to read.

Imagine

Being around people who will talk about you behind your back and smile in your face or act like they care about you when you feel down or are hurt makes you not want to befriend another.
