Even though they are human they both are very wise in decision making. Both of them are also protectors to their home town and are basically held responsible for things, in my opinion I believe everyone looks up to them in their stories. Their actions aren’t human like, for example Odysseus was the only one who was able to return home safely from his journey. And Batman in the end survived the huge explosion that Bane (the villain) had set up in the city of Gotham. In conclusion Odysseus and Batman are both epic heroes.
Bourne, on the other hand, used to be an emotionless and fearless killer but in the end he turned out to be good man. While struggling with their life and professions, Ross and Bourne both arrived at a time wherein they started a rebellious stage against their superiors that brought them obstacles that freed them in the end. As trained soldier and perfect hit man, both Ross and Bourne always do what they are told until they became their own side. At the warfront, Robert Ross was controlled by his commander and all he could do was follow every instruction that was told. It is evident when he and his men were instructed by Captain Leather to go to the crater.
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.
Either way both of these Superheroes have super powers and no matter if they wake up with them or come to them during the day they change who they are. For years the American culture gravitated towards super heroes like Superman, Green Lantern,
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.
That hero is Atticus, who fights for racial justice. Atticus seems like a sort of “Superman” in the county of Maycomb, as he does many things that other people don’t want to do or can’t do. For instance he is the one who has to take care of a mad dog who is loose on the streets, and he guns it down in one shot. People call Atticus names because he is not racist, and his daughter Scout retaliates against them. “Atticus had promised me he would wear me out if he ever heard of me fighting any more.” (99) Scout thinks.
Okonkwo’s “whole life was dominated by […] fear of failure and of weakness” (Achebe 13), and while this initially aids him in his success, it is also the precise reason for all his immoral actions. Okonkwo is also driven by the need to conform and live up to the expectations of males in Igbo culture. Igbo culture closely associates masculinity with strength and courage, and this gender role is stressed upon boys from a very young age. Due to this,
As a consequence of his condition, Christopher cannot be as independent as most teens his age. However, Christopher still has the run-of-the-mill desire to do what he wants without anyone telling him otherwise. As a result Christopher disobeys his fathers orders by “telling white lies” and continuing his investigation. “I decided that I was going to find out who killed Wellington even though father had told me to stay out of other people’s business. This is because I do not always do what I am told” (page 29) Christopher’s daring decision to leave behind the life he had always known and travel to London, was his greatest step toward independence.
For example “and down he fell, but staggered up immediately” and “he would stand Hindley's blows without winking or shedding a tear”, reflects how much stronger and tougher Heathcliff is in comparison to Hindley who has led a sheltered life. Although Hindley’s treatment of Heathcliff is horrible, it can be understood why, as a child, he behaved this way, because Heathcliff came in as a threat to his legacy, and his rude behaviour was a way of self-preservation and a natural instinct as a child, not liking a new arrival, especially of such a different class. Heathcliff’s appearance is also said to reflect that of a Roma or gypsy, described as a “dirty, ragged, black haired child” perhaps relating to his solitary, reserved nature, as he feels he doesn’t belong. The difference between the behaviour of Catherine and Hindley in comparison to that of Heathcliff is always evident. For example when the children all have measles Nelly says “Cathy and her brother harassed me terribly, he was as uncomplaining as a lamb; though hardness, not gentleness, made him give little trouble.” .This could
Siegel and Shuster, the creators of Superman, were each making $800 a week. The upside of making a successful comic hero was very apparent. This is not a knock against Kane and his creative genius, just a portrayal of facts from the time. The motivation for Batman was based on a common American concept of greed. Kane and writer Bill
