[Possible 1984 spoilers ahead]
With Clark Kent, his glasses keep his identity icognito. With Bruce Wayne, Batman wears his cowl. But Diana wears nothing more than a crown. How is it that no one notices the similarity there? I've found an article going over how Wonder Woman kept herself incognito between 1984 and the Dawn of Justice (apparently used the Lasso of Truth to keep herself hidden even when she used the camera array to broadcast her face) and the fact that she knocks out cameras before taking out the baddies, but there are historical pictures of Diana as Wonder Woman as well. I'm sure that someone somewhere must've caught her on camera between 1916 and 2016.
For some reason, I’ve been craving this type of game. The only games I know of are Freedom Force and South Park Shattered But Whole.
I know DC Universe Online. Champions Online and City of Heroes private servers exist but all of these other than CoH look like a micro transaction nightmare and I’m mostly interested in single player games.
Absolute crap-shoot of a film. Pedro Pascal and Gal Gadot's acting were the only two enjoyable things this piece of trash had to offer. As a huge DC AND Marvel fan, this was on the same level as Birds of Prey and Justice League... just horrid. Failed style with no substance.
Cheesy effects didn't reflect the title's budget and came off as a direct to DVD film, the writing was insanely underwhelming and made me feel personally insulted, (The scene where Wonder Woman lasso's onto a missile to fly through the air and rescue two children playing soccer on an abandoned road in the middle of a car chase was hilariously awful in the same vein of an SNL script,) and the scenes where Wonder Woman lasso's around like Spider-Man didn't help. Not to mention this movie completely ruins continuity in the already established universe, (Oh, she can fly 30 years before Batman Vs. Superman/Justice League where she can't?) Awesome, phenomenal work, Patty Jenkins.
I'm in my MSW advanced practicum. It is my last semester. There's a light at the end of the tunnel. But one of the hoops I must jump through to get there is really pissing me off.
For practicum seminar, We are asked to write "superhero reports" in a "superhero journal." I was asked to give myself a superhero name. Describe what super powers/ professional skills I want. All of the writing prompts were about career development, setting boundaries, thinking about what setting we want to practice in. But all with a superhero themed twist. I hate it. I'm a 40 year old adult learner not an 8 year old. I feel this is condescending. I don't mind writing about career development, but why in a superhero context. It seems this activity perpetuates a dangerous attitude that social workers should be superheros, rescuers, and it's our job to fix people.
Am I over reacting here? Am I just taking this the wrong way? Not sure if I should say something or if I should just keep my head down, finish up my practicum and leave it as an anonymous comment on my course eval.
Edit: Thanks to everyone for your support. I'm of course going to do the darn assignment to the best of my ability. I appreciate some of the humorous suggestions. I appreciate those of you who thought about the instructors likely positive intentions. I won't rage quit today. I'm going to just do me, reflecting on my skills and careers goals. Focus on the intent of this assignment and not the metaphor.
At the same time, I think the superhero metaphor should really be examined at a later time. I too cringe and get angry when I see the "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" sign pasted to the front of nursing homes where residents are dropping like flys and there no enough PPE. This is a broke ass system we live and work in. Our clients deserve more than platitudes and so do we.
I can only seem to find the discontinued 80’s system, but it seems kind of outdated and hard to find resources for... any ideas?
