It’s one of the ultimate comic book debates: should a hero be willing to kill the bad guys for the greater good, or simply thwart their plans as many times as necessary? Many heroes, such as Batman, adhere to a code in which they nobly refuse to kill anyone, no matter how evil. And yet some villains, such as Joker (going back to Batman), have killed numerous innocent people, and continue to do so after escaping the capture of our so very noble hero again and again and again. Should the Dark Knight make an exception in this case, or should he stay true? There will never be a right answer; it will always be disputed.
Another noble hero is the title character in Netflix’s Daredevil, as he proved many times in season one of the series. But in season two of the series, he meets someone more than willing to end the lives of those he deems worthy of deletion from existence, The Punisher, who puts it bluntly: “I do the one thing that you can’t. You hit ’em and they get back up. I hit ’em and they stay down.”
