|摘要: ||從超級英雄電影的歷史來說，Richard Donner所執導的《超人》一直被認為是現代超級英雄電影的始祖，然而此時期的超級英雄電影大部份為低成本的作品，《超人》的成功並不足以使超級英雄電影在觀眾心中建立穩固的地位。|
本研究以《刀鋒戰士》及《地獄怪客》兩個風格相近的系列電影作為分析對象，理論架構使用Joseph Campbell神話學的敘事分析，且Christopher Vogler依據Campbell的「英雄旅程」（Hero''s Journey）理論，將英雄旅程細分為十二個步驟，也將此十二個步驟帶入本研究的分析中，雖然是說Campbell的「英雄旅程」是適用於超級英雄電影的，不過以現有的文獻來說，還沒看到是以「英雄旅程」來分析超級英雄電影的論文，大多數論文是將「英雄旅程」的步驟套進文本分析以解釋其運用，本研究認為使用神話學的敘事分析與英雄旅程能分析出此兩部系列電影的敘事和角色的特質，在分析文本的過程中也使用意識形態理論，以解析暗藏電影中的當代社會的意識形態。
Historically speaking superhero movie, Richard Donner directed by "Superman" has been considered the ancestor of the modern superhero movie, but the most of superhero movies of this period are low-cost work, the success of "Superman" is not enough to make a superhero movie establish a solid position in the hearts of the audience.
Superhero movie is considered to be the impression of low-cost production, in 1989, "Batman" release was able to break. But in 1997, "Batman" release the Episode IV, its failure at the box office and artistic evaluation, which works to draw the series rests and superhero movie phenomenon has been cooled.
There was release a special theme movie in 1998: "Blade". The film successfully combines martial arts and horror elements to create a new style, accidentally medium-shot cost, to get more than one hundred thirty million at the box office to global access, and this story can said to be very innovative at the time, but also to make Blade this role is full of charm. "Blade" saved low superhero movie, and open up a new generation: New Golden Age. Although the New Golden Age was from the "X-Men", and in the "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" peaked, but dealt marked the beginning of the era, "Blade" was the leader.
This research take Blade and Hellboy these two similar style series of films as the as example, the theoretical framework use mythology of Joseph Campbell and Christopher Vogler according to "Hero''s Journey" theory of Campbell, the hero journey was divided into twelve steps, also take these twelve step into this research, although it is said that Campbell''s "Hero''s Journey" is applied to the superhero movie, but based on existing documents, it is not seen any thesis use "Hero''s Journey" to analyze the superhero movie, most of them are take "Hero''s Journey" into the text analysis to explain how its use, this research suggests that use mythology and hero''s journey can analyze these two series film''s narrative and character traits, in analyzing the process of text is also used theory of ideology, to resolve the hidden ideology of contemporary society in movies.
