Bit of a busy day today, so in short of any meaningful original content, here is relatively meaningless unoriginal content.
(All this post needs is a Battlestar Galactica reference and it would be the nerdiest post ever.)
@Fluffy: Deathstroke is a meticulous contract assassin. I would call him NE.
John Constantine is a perfect CN. He bows to no one, flits in and out of people’s lives on a whim, and has battled against both Heaven and Hell (even at the same time, on more than one occasion).
@CJ: No to both Two Face & Batman. Chaotics often have quirky codes of conduct that they follow religiously. Lawfulness generally means respect for SOCIETY’s laws, not just your own.
I agree with (and applaud) all 9 of MGK’s choices.
These are fantastic. Superman one is my fave…
I don’t understand why some people refer to Batman as Lawful Good. He’s a vigilante and as such doesn’t obey all laws and shouldn’t be considered Lawful. (I understand he has his own code, but it doesn’t line up with society.)
maybe not original but still good non the less
Set nerd engines to nerd factor 8.
Not to troll or anything, but you missed Neutral Evil.
Disregard that, my browser didn’t load it.
[…] It’s a stupid alignment. Most of the alignments are stupid. That’s why they’re fun. FLAPJACKS: You’re ruining this. ME: Wait, so lemme get this straight. First they made […]
A proposal. Wonder Woman was Neutral Good, following a strict code of ethics but (traditionally) trying to change the male-dominated order, while fundamentally trying to protect life, etc etc.
But her intentionally snapping the neck of Maxwell Lord, even though it was apparently her only option, was such a shock specifically *because* it was against her alignment.
As I remember the D&D alignments, a character could do something outside of their alignment (free will) but only with a significant impact (psychic/emotional, and maybe changing alignment).
I would propose that act shifted her toward True Neutral (somehow, I feel like Superman would have found another option)… but I don’t feel like traditional Wonder Woman could stay at True Neutral at all. She cares. She has a strict credo, even though she broke it in that extreme situation. So either she needs to atone for her action (e.g. by finding a way to limit superpowers – accepting Lord’s case! – or by finding a way to ensure they can’t be subverted as Maxwell Lord did), or she needs to fundamentally change her character, becoming more anarchic and less Good.
A proposal. Do alignment chart motivational posters where all of the pictures are of really well-known famous people from history, and the quotations are all from comic book characters.
[…] Rich Tweet The Mighty Godking has a bunch of superhero/supervillain alignments over on a post on their site. The post is a couple of months old but I missed it at the time (thanks, […]
I’m sure everyone has realized this…. but it was Louis XIV not XVI that said “L’etat, c’est moi” or “I am the state.”
Awesome, titles and fabulous defined.. 🙂
So who wants to come up with one with anime characters?
This is so Chaotic, Neutral and Lawful! 😀
