Coming back to clear the town from bad guys and risking his life for people that even don’t want his help is not foolishness, it’s heroism. It’s just different kind of hero than Wayne. Taking justice in his hands and killing the bad guys is still heroism (recall Odysseus). Wayne is an obvious hero during the entire movie. Cooper is a hero as well, but nobody sees that until he has finished shooting and the end of the movie.
An outlaw hero is the opposite, they know right from wrong, but don’t follow the law. Another opposition is that an outlaw hero has distrust within civilization. I want to analyze Spiderman and show examples of how he represents an outlaw hero. Spiderman is the epitome of every kid’s dream come true. He goes from being an average, everyday nerd, to a superhero who always saves the day.
In Sir Gawain and The Green Knight the debate is if Sir Gawain matches my definition of Heroism, after reading I have decided that he does not. There is a difference between being a hero and being honorable. A hero is honorable but an honorable person is not a hero. To be honorable one must contain integrity, in Sir Gawain’s case he displays chivalry, being a knight it is a part of his code. One might say he displays heroism by stepping up to accept the Green Knights challenge in the place of king Arthurs, this act is also displayed as courageous, a prerequisite to heroism.
Extra Credit: Batman an Epic Hero As you go on with life, you come across a vast amount of people who will ask the question “Who do you think is one of the best hero of all time?” With this, majority would give numerous responses to who they merely believe is the best out of the best hero. However, for me, Batman is a true hero because he fights vigorously to protect those that are in desperate help and danger. Batman has had an unbelievably strong taste for justice ever since his parents were murdered senselessly by a homeless man when he was just a young boy. During his entire life, he has trained himself both physically and mentally to make sure he would be able to protect others just like he had wished he could have done for his parents.
Taylor is a man with seemingly unlimited power to control the very minds of people. In addition to being a story of good v. evil, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is a David and Goliath story. In addition to being a good man, Jeff Smith is also a man with very little money and power. Jeff doesn't have the resources to fight Taylor. But he knows that he is right, and that's all he needs to keep on fighting.
Ricky was shot by a local rival gang, we, the audience don't know the name of the person who shot him, this tells us that the person who shot the gun isn't very important, which also tells us that anyone can murder anyone in this society. The director John Singleton uses camera, editing and soundtrack to emphasise the importance of this scene. The film “Boyz in the Hood” naturally shows this is the key scene as it also is the turning point of the film. Firstly, the way the director controls the camera is interesting. The camera helps build suspense when the main character Tre and Ricky start walking apart and Tre keeps on looking back to watchout for Ricky.
They are both doing something that no human would ever do, like taking a challenge for your king or being a superhero and fighting dangerous villains everyday. Even though these characters aren’t real, we can learn something from them. You don’t have to perfect to be a hero. The best heroes are the ones that most people wouldn’t expect to be. Gawain was the weakest knight who took up a challenge that no one else would, which makes him brave and courageous.

Batman had to bevery forceful when it came to either one of the villains until he beat both the Joker and theScarecrow. Beowulf had the same in mind, but with Grendel only who was known for beingmalicious and undefeatable to nearly everyone. Of course the hero always wins, so Beowulf andBatman came out on top in each of their battles.Once the goal is achieved, the hero can go back to living their normal life. Batman was aman of two lives, one he could show to the public and one he had to hide to keep him and hisloved ones safe. He learned to balance one with the other, so he did not have to worry aboutwhat Batman had to do when he was Bruce Wayne; for the most part.
He did not know how to deal with his fear and rage when his parents did not allow him to interact with pop culture and violent media. However, when he was exposed to Marvel Comics starting from the incredible Hulk; he was able to explore violence, express his rage internally in his fantasy, and overcome fear and rage. From this he soon became an action movie and comic book writer. Through this he was able to observe how violent stories helped people in many ways. He tested his theory whit his son when the boy was afraid to climb a tree.
