plain lo

“Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita.” — Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

“That Power Can Be Innocent:” Trauma in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

SPOILER WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE, PROCEED WITH CAUTION IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET.

As I mentioned in my last post about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the most compelling part of the film is its exploration of formative trauma.  Bruce Wayne’s loss of his mother is a central plot point, and Lex Luthor’s experience of child abuse is central to his hatred for Superman — which, of course, is the motivation for half of the plot of the film. 

The parallels between Lex and Bruce are pretty explicit, even though no one really talks about it.  Both of them can’t stand the idea of Superman — someone superhuman, someone who can create an incredible amount of destruction, but someone who is decidedly virtuous and good.
