An Overall View Of Jervis Tetch

Here is the Jervis Tech secret Arkham file!

WARNING!!! Triggers: pedophilia | incest | abuse | OCD | PTSD | Schizophrenia | Incarceraphobia.

Here we go! Jervis Tetch is a fictional supervillain, often either a filler or used in the background. He is part of the Batman rogue gallery or Batmanverse. It’s quite apparent that the inspiration came from Lewis Carroll‘s Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland.

However, Jervis is a scientist with a passion for controlling the mind of people. He likes to try and invent the perfect gadgets that would allow him to take over people’s minds. While often put aside, the Mad Hatter is, in fact, one of Batman’s most enduring villains.

Confession Of A Misanthrope Artist

Anxiety Disorder - Mental Disorder

It took me years to understand myself. People rejected me at a very young age. Sure I have scars like any other my age, but I’m also differently wired.

When People Disgust Me

Confession of a misanthrope artist, are you ready for it? Let’s dive in! At a young age, I couldn’t stand how people close to me, except for my grandpa, would remove a stain from my face or simply wash my hands. I did not like the contact. As I grew older, I thought it was merely a case of germaphobia.

But, I understood that it wasn’t just the passing of germs and bacteria but the unnecessary touch. I couldn’t process why someone would do that as I would prefer learning and mimicking, so I could do it myself.

The Harvey Dent Secret Mental File

DC Comics - Arkham City - Harvey Dent Two-Face

Have you ever wonder about the psychological state of Batman’s villains? I do. So, let’s dive in and learn more!

The Beginning Of Harvey Dent

Here it goes for the Harvey Dent secret mental file! In the #66 of the Detective Comics titles, Harvey “Apollo” Kent appeared first. It was only sometime later that his name changed to Dent. This was to avoid confusion with Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent.

In the 40s, Harvey made only a few appearances and fewer in the 50s. The goal was to make Batman a more joyful superhero along with his villain gallery, and Harvey Dent dropped out. However, in the 70s, Dennis O’Neil decided it was time for Two-Face to make a comeback and made sure he would become a villain worthy of Batman’s rogue gallery.

When Blood Is Thinner Than Water

Anxiety

A year or so ago, I wrote an article about people that can reveal themselves as toxic in one’s life. It is hard to draw a line between ourselves and others we consider friends. Then this happened to me.

*** UPDATES: After the results of 23andMe I am only 2.9% Native American on my paternal side. Meaning my grandfather’s lineage is solely French and Spaniard resulting in an error that occurred fifty years ago having his family believe they were Mohawk. But, this doesn’t change any of my views on the matter of defending Native American rights. ***

Circles of Hell

I do not enjoy talking about myself or my life. I like to keep my privacy within my house walls and a relatively tight circle of people. It is hard for me to accept what my life became and where I am heading. When blood is thinner than water it hurts my very life.

With that said, and this is where it gets trickier for me. I do not believe in a “higher purpose” or that “everything happens for a reason.” I do not think we are born with a predestined path to follow.

Futuristic Friendship

Social Media

Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. It is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association. — Wikipedia

Roughly Ten Years Ago

Futuristic friendship comes from the web now.

Not so long ago, we would meet our new friends on the school ground. We would meet some at our work or bookstore, at a coffee shop, and it would be something physical. Now, it changed. Something in us shifted. It’s like reversing, and we must adapt to new types of friendships…or maybe that’s just me?

For introverts, the introduction to chats on the Internet or forums made it easier to express themselves. Don’t get me wrong. I’m one of those! I am not comfortable speaking to people or elaborating vocally on subjects. Social gatherings for me are of minimal importance.

An Attack On The Indie Community

Social Media

Recently, many social media exercised a purge of their respective platforms. Nobody seems to understand their doing or their reasoning. However, the most significant audience it affects seems to remain the same: the independent and freelance creatives.

The Big Boys

For years now, Facebook went through many facelifts and changes. So many times, I remember going, “What the frack?” and “Okey-dokey.” On my journey to become an author, I created a network of fellow creatives from various fields, as well as editors and small publishers. It stuck with me that often they would say Facebook hurt their business.

We all know that Instagram belongs to Facebook. It is their application to share pictures and videos. An excellent platform for authors, or at least, it was. Then again, they went full-purged on their users. Going through a multiple of “Follow Loop,” I must say that I dropped out from the Instagram wagon. I heard of this purge way too often.
