Heroes have always been a part of the human caricature. Although, these heroes have not always been categorized in a similar way.

Demonstrated in lines 197-203, Beowulf (the hero of the Anglo-Saxon period) is described as the “mightiest” man on Earth; he is also considered “highborn” and “powerful.” These are some of the necessary traits a hero needs to the Anglo-Saxons.

While it is impossible to be him, he still represents the ideal, and perhaps that is why he speaks to both genders. Bond embodies a set of specific attributes that are associated with masculinity and with being a man” (Ceccoli, 1)One of the justifications that this belief is incorrect is that this idea of masculinity is impossible.
