The Promethean Quest and James Cameron's Military Optimism in Metroid

This longread analyzes the role of the Promethean Quest and military optimism in the Metroid franchise. This includes Metroid Dread , which Nintendo just announced. Apart from an  introduction and conclusion, there are three main sections: Metroid Dread: Thoughts and Impressions Gothic Analysis, part 1: The Promethean Quest Gothic Analysis, part 2: Military Optimism Update, 7/13/2021:  I've been constantly revising and expanding on the Military Optimism section. As a result, it's considerably more lengthy than the other two sections. I may release it separately at a future date, but have held off doing so for now due to formatting issues. Update, 8/4/2021: I've started writing a book about heroes in popular media. Instead of a lone article, " The Promethean Quest and James Cameron's Military Optimism in Metroid" is going to be one of that book's chapters. Future chapters shall be released on my blog in preview-sized chunks. Stay tuned! (artist:  Nick van
