From the characterization, to comical descriptions, to the things the characters say, nothing that Kurt Vonnegut wrote in this story can be taken seriously. By Vonnegut presenting his story in this manner, it almost creates Harrison to look more like a supervillain than a superhero, like intended. However, in 2081, the moment Chandler Tuttle had Harrison escape from prison and barge into the auditorium, the tone switched and became extremely heroic and inspirational, creating his very own version of what today’s society would consider a superhero.

Throughout history, humans have crafted countless stories of heroes, from the ancient journeys of Beowulf and Odysseus, to the modern ones of Harry Potter and Meredith Grey. At first glance, these stories are diverse in the extreme, coming from all different cultures and about all manner of heroes. One might think such different tales have nothing in common, but upon a closer examination, one notices a single plot template that is featured in almost every good story ever written. This idea, that heroic stories usually follow the same sequence of action, was realized by a mythologist named Joseph Campbell. Campbell calls this template the ‘Hero’s Journey’ or ‘Monomyth’, which has three major parts: separation, initiation, and return.

Beowulf certainly qualifies to be an epic hero underneath this category and plenty more too. Not only did he defeat supernatural foes but he had supernatural assistance on his journeys. Beowulf had fate or the “Wyrd” on his side practically calling him to be the hero that was needed in these situations.
Heroism is defined in many ways, some people 's definition is a description of some type of superman; the ability to fly, very muscular, and a long red cape that follows their every move, but a true act of heroism is someone who is not only strong, but also brave and willing to make a sacrifice.

In the song, “Be a Man” in the movie Mulan, Mulan is faced with a series of trials that show to us that she is trying her best and not giving up, revealing she is mentally strong. This leads on to the idea that heroism is someone who does not concede quickly.

When we think of heroes we often think of a masked vigilanty or a cape crusader swooping down from the heavens and saving the day. Although heroes come in many shapes and sizes, they also tend to come from different backgrounds. The people of the United States pride themselves with freedom and equality. However, still to this day there is a struggle with discrimination. Matt Zoller Seitz’s article “The Offensive Movie Cliché That Won’t Die” definitely sparked some interest and was definitely right when it came to the offensive issue most people do not see.
What is a Hero? When you think about a hero you think about the strong and corageous people that you see in a movie or T.V. show. Most of the time fictional heroes are flying or have other super hero powers but, we all know that people can’t just be born with those powers. So how do we know what a hero is?
