Judge Dredd comes from a future world of devastation, the result of World War III. Majority of the planet is a radioactive wasteland while the remaining human population resides in Mega Cities. Lack of resources creates desperation, ultimately leading to increased crime and civil war. To combat the chaos, Governments deploy Street Judges to enforce the law, even granting the power to convict or even execute offenders at the scene of crime.
What if our police force became a force like Street Judges? We have lived in the days of terrorism, cities under martial law and even been through two World Wars. Over the years, law enforcement has used excessive force to show dominance of the law to citizens whether innocent or not. Would our world change for the better with Street Judges or will the public feel a sense of oppression and lash out in a rebellious nature?
Comic fans love crossovers and battles! The three characters that fans who love to see against Judge Dredd is Batman, RoboCop and The Punisher. Each character operating within or outside the law to bring justice for the innocent, mainly for the reason for having a corrupt judicial or executive system. Do you think Judge Dredd can take down each of these characters one on one? Or would it be a better that these characters band together, defeat The Predator on a game reserve planet or stop an infestation of Xenomorphs from plaguing Earth, as suggested through many crossovers?
Judge Dredd transitioned from the comic book to movie screen like many comic characters. Dredd’s two feature films is the 1995 Judge Dredd and Dredd of 2012. Which do you think was the better version of Judge Dredd and will his story continue in cinema?
