Talk:Portal:Recurring Themes

From Heroes Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

We need lead images and a standard size (I'm guessing 450x350, since that's the same as most other pics) before we can set up the portal. Unrelated: I cut my index finger cooking dinner and am typing with my middle finger on my right hand. This has taught me that "Heroes" is perilously close to "Herpes".--Hardvice (talk) 21:54, 4 January 2007 (EST)

  • Well, now, I wouldn't call that "perilous" at all! :)

Okay, ideas for lead pics...

  • Fate vs. free will — Maybe Hiro kissing Charlie?
  • Family - either the Petrellis or the Sanderses (my vote is the Sanderses in the Utah woods)
  • Heroism — How about this pic? Pretty heroic!
  • Loyalty vs. treachery — Jessica and DL fighting?
  • Moral ambiguity — Lots of choices: Sylar and Brian? Or a split Niki/Jessica picture? How about Bennet with Claire at Primatech? Or the Haitian silencing Claire?
  • Pressure of responsiblity — Nathan doing something campaign-y? Or Niki at Micah's school.
  • Sacrifice — Eden's suicide seems pretty representative.
  • Secrets and deception - The Haitian and Claire? Claire confessing to her dad?

They're not all ideas of pictures, sorry. (This is not an easy subject.) Other ideas? - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:14, 4 January 2007 (EST)

New Pic for Logic/Emotion

I changed the pic of for logic vs. emotion from Jessica to Peter and Nathan. I think they're much more representative of the struggle between following your mind/heart. Also, it's the right size. - RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:27, 25 January 2007 (EST)

Correct Category?

I think that the "Women in Refrigerators" and "One Punch Knockout" articles aren't actually themes. I would say that they are both more of a "Reference" than a "Recurring Theme" and should be moved into the appropriate category. --The Mysterious Major Despard 18:59, 27 October 2007 (EDT)

  • What are they references to?--Hardvice (talk) 19:02, 27 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Okay, maybe not a reference - that just came to mind because the WiR article referred to the Green Lantern incident. But they aren't themes. Recurring 'motifs' maybe... Perhaps, then, the portal should be renamed to "Recurring Themes, Symbols and Motifs" or something like that? --The Mysterious Major Despard 19:07, 27 October 2007 (EDT)
      • I agree that one punch knockout seems a bit out of place, though it doesn't bother me personally. I think of Women in Refrigerators as a code name of sorts for the recurring theme of female (and I suppose male) victimization. I still see it as a theme, despite it not having "vs." in the title, or having a traditional name. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:59, 27 October 2007 (EDT)
        • Okay. I just set up a redirect page from Victimization to WiR. That way, on the Themes portal, it reads as Victimization, but links to the page on WiR. Is that okay? --The Mysterious Major Despard 21:40, 27 October 2007 (EDT)
          • I don't mind a redirect, but I prefer the "Women in Refrigerators" name since it refers to the original list created by Gail Simone. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:12, 27 October 2007 (EDT)

Catagory for Promises?

I've noticed a lot of promises flying around in the series, so I think that there should be a page specifically for promises and whether or not they are kept

One of us, One of Them

Can we make a page for this as a theme? It happens frequently in the show, even apart from the Company.--Laudo 13:05, 11 May 2009 (EDT)
