sDr. Maxis and his scientist team, Group 935, were tasked with creating an army of super soldiers and new technology for the government project christened "Der Riese" or "The Giant". In his experiments, Maxis used Element 115 to create the zombies. The zombies, however, couldn't be controlled and would always be killed when they went berserk. While this was going on, Richtofen was testing 115 on living test subjects to create his super soldiers at a Siberian facility.
Here he was named a two-time All-American NJCAA wrestler and in his second year he won the championship. While wrestling at Bismarck State he was being watched by the University of Minnesota. They gave him a scholarship as well. (Cohen 2) In his first year he lost the championship match by a 3-2 decision over Stephen Neal. By next season already he was just throwing guys across the mat like rag dolls.
Iron Man wanted to avenge people like Yinsen (referring to the character in Iron Man the movie). Spiderman was born to avenge his uncle. Villians are the failed products of a flawed society, while heroes overcome the flaws. Heroes, though having flaws themselves, have ambitions not twisted as in the mindset of villains. Rather than taking anger out on society itself, heroes overcome obstacles to try to fix the flaws.
The Heroic Journey of the Incredible Hercules Hercules was the son of Zeus and Alcmene. He was born hated by the goddess Hera because of Zeus’ relationship with Alcmene. From an early age Hercules got his first taste of near death experinces when two snakes were placed in his cradle but he grabbed both of those snakes with his shockingly strong hands for an infant and killed them. Hercules life proved already to be a dangerous one, but little did he know that his Hero’s Journey was ahead of him. Hercules life was already a champion wrestler, an excellent marksman with a bow and arrow, and having the ability of superhuman strength just added to his heroic charisma.
A true hero does not take all the pride in a heroic act instead a hero should be humble not cocky. A modern audience would consider him a monster because of all the attention he seeks, but a medieval audience considers this heroic because he puts his own life at risk to save everyone. The responsibility Beowulf had for killing Grendel became pushy and too far and taken in a gruesome way. The battle between Beowulf and Grendel’s mother was even more monstrous than the battle between Beowulf and Grendel. Beowulf took a sword to the water cave where Grendel’s mother lived.
A hero is a person who is brave, does great, and is admired for doing so. Stereotypically, a hero is a vigilante who fights crime daily and may even have a costume. Nevertheless, a hero does not have to be a man in spandex, nor does he have to save lives but rather, he must be willing to sacrifice in an act of selflessness. Heroism can be found in the novel ‘The Outsiders’ by S.E Hinton. These heroes are known as the Greasers.
Princess Bride Battle of Skill, Strength, and Wit The protagonist, Wesley, is on a mission to save his one true love Buttercup. In order to do so, he must catch up with and defeat her three captors in three epic battles. Her kidnapper’s names are Inigo Montoya, Fezzik, and Vizzini. Vizzini is the evil brain of the kidnappers and he is also the group leader. Inigo is the likeable drunk and the entertaining sidekick who has been trained as a swordsman in order to avenge his father.
The author uses characterization to support the quotes interpretation. The inventor was a quiet hardworking guy, but at the end his mixed emotions of love and anger caused him to be brave and outspoken. Evidently, Lincoln’s quote “I claim not to have controlled events, but confess plainly that events have controlled me” interpretations can be demonstrated
HERMAN WEBSTER MUDGETT Deric Smith Herman Webster Mudgett, a man of great intelligence used his brains to burn, mutate, gas, perform surgery, dissect and suffocate hundreds of people. Mudgett lived a sketchy and hard childhood, even though he was born into a wealthy family. He was teased by the other kids in the neighbor hood. “One day, some of the older boys waited until the doctor was gone, then carried the screaming Herman to the doctor’s door and pushed him toward the terrible skeleton.” (Allison Lassieur, 20) Mudgett became very interested in anatomy after this incident. Mudgett didn’t only murder people he also was involved in fraud, forgery, real estate, insurance scams and bigamy.
