We are both light and dark, being our dark, often, the result of our response in dealing with a particular trauma or a set of really hard circumstances in our lives. Unlike the worlds in many books, movies, TV shows and comics, the real world isn’t so black and white, being good and evil dictated far more by perspectives than by absolutes.
Of course, entertainment will many times exaggerate these opposite notions in order to, well, entertain, rather than provide answers on an ideal moral compass. Still, even within these exaggerated characters, we can all find redeeming aspects, which, in turn, leads itself to thought provoking discussions with regards to what can be seen as ‘absolute good’ and what can be considered as ‘born evil’.
It’s amidst these discussions that we can sometimes find ourselves relating, more than we initially were led to believe we would, to a particular hardship/emotional response from a character accused of being plain evil.
