  1. I think our presentation will turn out good, I enjoyed reading more about Batman considering I have never seen the movies or read the comics before. It was a nice introduction into Batman I guess you could say. I would probably say he is my favorite superhero just because he does not have powers like all the others.

    I'm excited to see the direction your project goes. There are many philosophical questions that arise from vigilantism.

    (16-1) I would also recommend "THE PHILOSOPHICAL FOUNDATIONS OF HEROISM" by Dr. Andrew Bernstein.

  10. Taylore (16-2)11:43 AM CDT

    Reading your groups report summary, makes me more anxious to see how it turns out. It seems like an interesting report topic!

  15. 16-2
    I wish your presentation was more opinion based rather than informative. But overall, I really enjoyed it!

  16. I also enjoyed philosophizing about batman's way of thinking.

  17. I really enjoyed your guys' presentation! It was awesome. I do agree with the person above me, though, that I wish you all would've shared your own personal opinions too!

    Great job on your presentation! I was really excited to hear you were doing philosophy and a pop culture! It was very well done.
