abstract
  • Marcus Aurelius Commodus, also known as Emperor Commodus or simply Commodus, is the primary antagonist of the 2000 Oscar winner historic action film Gladiator. The only male son of Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor. He lived in the shadow of his father, hoping one day to become the Emperor, but all his dreams were crushed after knowing that his own father would choose Maximus instead of him. Commodus was a psychotic and unpredictable man who abused his power, lusted after his own sister and thought of himself as a god. Commodus always threatened to kill those who he thought of as a threat to himself or didn't give into his whims. He was portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix and is loosely based on a real Roman emperor of the same name. The real life Commodus was also mentally unstable, dressing up as Hercules and fighting in the coliseum himself.
