Self-Serving Bias & Stockholm Syndrome — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

SHere we are at S. I’m running out of clever things to say. Maybe I am not as clever of a writer as I thought. We are nearing the end for the challenge, with only 8 letters left.

Today we tackle Self-Serving Bias and Stockholm Syndrome. Words you may have heard often, but like many other words, never thought of implementing them as literary terms.

I will admit now that I am not a DC fan.  Most of the characters I don’t really like.  I am more of a Marvel fan.  I’m sure there are some fanboys out there that will not like me for saying that, but Marvel Universe makes more sense to me.  Of the DC Universe, I sort of like Green Lantern, but I did have a love for Batman.  I will go over my discussion of Batman in a separate article.
