Also which identity does he consider himself? Is Bruce Wayne dressing as Batman or vice versa? Finally "Purpose", what is the burning fire that drives Bruce Wayne to become Batman other than the death of his parents; why he feels he must protect the city which has taken so much from him; caused him immense suffering and to what end, amongst other things. My analysis will be based on the general idea of Batman, information I have acquired through comics, movies, other outside sources and my own criteria. The aspect of "home" will be a vital part in this essay because through here we may comprehend Bruce's way of thinking and in some sense, walk his shoes.
When people think of a hero, a tall buff male with supernatural strength who beats up villains comes to mind. But not all heroes are like that. Superman, Mahatma Gandhi, Veronika Scott, and Ponyboy Curtis are all heroes. Superman is the only hero that fits that category. Superman is an archetypical hero, a hero in books and movies that fights villains with supernatural powers.
“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart” -Hercules. In the book The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins had to make many decisions, which could be considered to be heroic, but he isn’t necessarily considered to be a hero because of his physical strength. What does it mean to be a hero? In the book Beowulf, many considered Beowulf to be a hero because of his strong, and prideful personality, and his large, and mighty size. Bilbo on the other hand was quiet and generous, and he was also only three feet tall, which made people question his bravery, and strength.
In the end, the hero becomes a role model for society, as their stories are used to teach people how to overcome obstacles and succeed in life. First, heroes often face many challenges and dangerous situations which tests their perseverance, and their life depends on their decision during their journey. For example, in Lord of the Rings, Frodo, the hero, went on a journey to destroy The Ring. Frodo had many traits as a hero, one of them was perseverance. This was shown when he and the fellowship went on the journey to destroy The Ring.
A Comparison of Heroes’ Journeys The hero’s journey is a requirement for being a hero. This means that everyone must overcome some form of struggle (mental or physical) in order to become a hero, like Bilbo Baggins or King Arthur. The journeys of this hobbit and orphan are primarily external which caused them to have many similarities and differences in their tests, allies, and enemies; their supreme ordeals; and their returns and reputations. The many difficult tests that heroes face are what shape them; their allies being the ones who help them with their challenges; and their enemies, the ones who play a part in their obstacles. All of these components fit together to make the second stage of the hero’s journey.
Foreshadowing allows the reader to expect actions in a story before the actions occur. Specifically, Max puts extensive effort into planning his pranks on the Chaos Club. Throughout the novel, Max talks to himself about how his plans will work. When executing the plans, the reader then can compare the result to what originally envisioned. The reader believes and wants Max to successful carry out his pranks, since each successful prank to Max is a step closer to Max revealing the identities of the Chaos Club members.
My father is the strongest person I know because his body has been through too many injuries to even count; during those injuries, he never cried once. There are many of many other people in this world that I could have chosen to say that I admire the most, but these three people mean the most to me and stand out to me compared to all other people in the world. The first person that I admire the most is Helen Keller. I admire Helen Keller the most because during her childhood and adult life, she accomplished many many things. Helen Keller grew up deaf and blind from the age of six months old.
A classical hero is special because they are the ONLY PERSON who could complete their journey. They get a special summons specifically for them and then are put through a trial of tests to accomplish that task. However, the hero generally survives, and although they encounter some pretty scary and life-threatening experiences, there is normally an added object (rather it be living or not) to help the hero accomplish his or her goal. As put in the article, “Fantasy and the Classic Hero” by Natalie Babbitt, “If it weren’t for these protective figures or devices...the hero would never be able to survive the trials of his or hers to come.” Therefore, because they are given an extra boost of support and guidance, the hero is able to accomplish their individualized mission, designed to only make THEM suffer. Ultimately,
