Therefore, both of the articles are expressing and showing that heroic isn’t just something that they do for good. Heroic is something that they have to sacrifice themselves for others. Beowulf isn’t just someone who does good but has a purpose to sacrifice everything to keep his people together. Overall, being a hero can be defined in many different ways. A hero can be someone who is selfless, honest, confident, caring, and courageous.
Throughout all of his life, everything Equality did was ruled over by a controlling government, until he managed to escape. Once Equality enters the forbidden forest, his motivations are clearly revealed to the reader. Once Equality enters the forest, he truly begins to discover parts of himself he never knew existed, “We could also rise, or run, or leap, or fall down again. We were thinking that these were thoughts without sense, but before we knew it our body had risen in one leap”(78). There are many moments similar to this once Equality enters the forest, and once he is reunited with Liberty, he is the happiest he had ever been before.
“What is a hero? Is a hero someone who has a super power? Is a hero a fictional character who fights battles against the evil? Or is a hero an ordinary person who continuously cares for the well-being of others and is always finding a way to help others. In my opinion, a hero is someone that takes risks when faced with a problem and helps others in the goodness of their hearts.
For a reason that is unknown to us at the time, the steward, who goes by the name of John Aycliffe, deems Asta's son a wolf's head, this means that he is no longer human and any man can kill him. Crispin flees, after following the instructions of the priest, he stumbles across a town where he is captured and made slave to Bear, a bulky activist. They go on a mission to make money and reach Great Bexley, along the way dear taught Crispin how to sing, play and dance, all the ways he made money. when they get to Great Bexley, Crispin is compromised by the queen's men.

They had “heard plenty of” young boys flaunting their choice but they were empty threats. After Finny fell out of the tree during his time in the Super Suicide Society of the Summer Session he would never be able to go to war, no matter how badly he wanted to: “‘I’ve been writing to the Army and the Navy and the Marines and the Canadians and everybody else all winter… They all gave me the same answer after they saw the medical report on me. The answer was no soap. We can’t use you. I also wrote the Coast Guard, the Merchant Marine, I wrote to General de Gaulle personally, I also wrote Chiang Kai- shek, and I was about ready to write somebody in Russia’” (103).
One does not need to possess supernatural powers to be a superhero. Sometimes all it takes is a good motive and will power. A tragic past, a strong sense of justice, or anything of the such can inspire any fair being to take that path. A person described as a ‘hero’ must have certain characteristics which usually include; modesty, commitment, and mostly courage. It is the nature of epic poems to include a single or many characters that are the said ‘hero’ of the story; such is true in Homer’s The Odyssey.
Have you ever heard of the story Beowulf? If not, then I will be telling you the different scenarios that occurred in the movie and the book. Beowulf is about a heroic fellow who saves a kingdom from a magical named Grendel. He went through numerous of battles between Grendel, Grendel’s mother and the Dragon. In this essay I will be discussing the different event that happened in the story and the movie.
It is rising up and above in rough situations, not the urge to exceed others, but to know how to serve and protect them at any cost and speaking up when no one else will. These are signs of heroism, qualities found in the people around us and ourselves. Being a hero is an ability anyone can
It does not have to just be someone who fights crimes on a daily basis or put bad people away. Yes, those are heroes and I for one greatly appreciate all of the people who risk their lives everyday fighting for our country or just for our well-being and safety. But a hero does not have to be all of that. “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself,” (Cambell, Moyers and Flowers). A hero could be anyone who stands out to you.
Lastly, Beowulf fights the dragon because not only does he want to protect his people but he also wants to gain the treasure the dragon so fiercely guards. Perhaps the most compelling difference might be the fact that Beowulf fights the last battle with Wiglaf, instead of by himself. Unlike the rest of Beowulf’s men, Wiglaf stays with Beowulf as he remembers the loyalty, trust, and generosity that Beowulf constantly shows to his men. In this battle, Beowulf does fight the dragon but towards the end Wiglaf step in and aids Beowulf. Each of these reasons shows the differences between the battles.
At the start of the story, Ender is visited by colonel Graff to go participate in Battle School. Ender then goes and is faced with challenges everyday to test who he is. Ender finally destroys the buggers, but finds out that they weren 't trying to hurt the humans.

They go to Mirkwood and became lost easily. Thorin does not have any plans of getting out, and eventually gets captured by the wood elves.

He uses the ring to avoid his capture and saves his crew, except for Thorin who dies during the battle. After Bilbo and his crew escape, they finally return to Hobbiton. “it gave him more sorrow than joy, and he was now weary of his adventure.
I say it’s strange because I would not think of history being a theme in any way, but for this epic it works well. I was moved by Sundiata’s respect for what came before him, whether it is his admiration of Alexander the Great or his honouring of his father’s alliances. This epic survives solely because of how highly Mali values its past. How awesome is that? An important characteristic of Sundiata that I found most compelling was his heroism.
