Character vs. Character

Batman vs. the Joker
One of the most common literary conflicts is that of Character vs. Character. This is often referred to as "Man vs. Man." In this most basic of conflicts, one person, or like being, is in conflict with another person or like being. In the example in our photo, we have the hero, Batman, in conflict with the villain, The Joker.  This conflict may play a large role and contribute to the development of both characters. There are usually several arguments/disagreements before the climax is reached. The conflict is external.

On a separate sheet of paper, with your group members, come up with three examples of either films or novels that contain this conflict. Be ready to share these in class.
