Two of the most incredible television shows in the DC Comics universe are Arrow and The Flash. Both are heart-warming, gut-retching action shows that feature superheroes, love-lives and awesome costumes. Despite those similarities both characters and their shows are very different. The Flash is a meta-human with super speed named Barry Allen and The Arrow is just a regular person who never misses a shot with a bow named Oliver Queen. Both The Flash and The Arrow have super smart teams and secondary heroes to help them through their crusades.
In fact, most of these characters, regardless of the time and place they were created in, shared similar characteristics to the two kings. A huge number possessed skills that mere mortals didn 't have, which helped them defeat their "infamous" enemies. These
Out of anger she slices her sons head off and seduces Beowulf, she tells him to give her a son since he killed her only son. Grendel’s mother tells Beowulf as long as the horn stays in her lair she will not attack his Hrothgar’s people again. Beowulf brings Grendel’s head back to show the Danes and lies about killing Grendel’s mother. In the poem, Beowulf swims to the bottom of the lake knowing Grendel’s mother would follow him. She meets him at the bottom of the lake, they begin fighting at some point she gets the best of him, but Beowulf gets back up and starts winning.
For Superman, it is how he realises his identity and purpose on Earth before he takes on his mantle on Earth as Superman. Both Superman and Perseus are model heroes, with noble values which are not too complex. Their enemies are always on the side of evil where their actions rendered them inhuman, and the heroes always fought for the side of the good. By comparing both stories, they are similar with identical themes which can make superheroes our modern
In addition, pushing the ship until the engine blows up now Quint, Matt Harper and Chief Brody are stuck on a boat in the middle of the ocean. The realism of that scene was great we finally see the teeth of the shark and how massive the shark actually is. In Australia two known shark videographers Ron and Valerie Taylor filmed all of the extra footage for the film. Uniquely, bringing another layer of Authenticity to the film. For example, another great scene was when they used the Jaws theme to build suspense, when Matt Harper decides to build the cage and decides to stick poison into the shark to finally end this and the shark attacks the cage.
But what really is a hero? Does a hero always need to be someone with the physical strength like Superman, or are there other important qualities that really make hero? That would mean that people with qualities that stand out and who motivate others and change the world can be considered a hero. It would also mean that a hero is anyone someone looks up to. A hero can be fictional or real, it could be someone you see everyday or someone you’ve never even met.
Superman. Batman. Spider Man. When younger kids think of the word "hero", these are the words that come to mind. However, my definition of hero is much broader than a few superheroes- my definition of a hero is anyone who makes a large, positive impact on one's life, or is an exemplar to others.
The Webster's definition of a hero is “A person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities”, this also happens to be one of the qualifications of being an epic hero. There are many things that can be used to compare and contrast Beowulf as an epic hero and a modern day hero, but you’ll find that the human idea of a hero was primarily the same in 700 CE as it is now although the job descriptions of hero’s have changed. In today’s time a person is usually considered a hero if they help the public good, like a police officer, soldier, firefighter and so on. In Beowulf’s time a person was considered a hero if they were a great warrior. When looking at the characteristics of what makes Beowulf an epic hero and the characteristics
The willingness to fight evil was evident in both of them even though they came from different eras they had the same warrior like values. Batman didn't have the same superhuman strength as Beowulf but that didn't stop him from saving Gotham from evil as Beowulf had superhuman strength to save Danish from the demons and his own village from the dragon. Batman and Beowulf differed in a lot but they both were similar in courage, smartness, and a willingness to fight
