Tom Robinson was a black man convicted of rape at a time when the Jim Crow laws were at their most potent, thus there was a large power divide between the white population and the black one. Since the jury was composed of all white men the odds facing Atticus’s success in this case where astronomical. However, Atticus chooses to take the case. In taking the case alone Atticus demonstrates great social courage, for social courage is when you persevere to the end of a task despite social adversity and pushback. This pushback is shown by multiple instances in which Jem and Scout are made fun of for their father is a “n****r lover”.
He lost all his powers but got them back after realising his flaws, his ego and pride. He showed us that heroism is in stepping forward for someone else and not being selfish.

It taught us the value of loyalty and the importance of our responsibilities. Thor also taught us the value of the most important thing which is ‘hope’, we learnt another thing from this movie which is “we never realise our mistakes till we are punished and then when we realise we are able to stand again”.
The evidence such as Brother Armstrong being a young boy and his brain not being fully developed it would be hard to say that he had clearly thought when he stated he wanted to kill Doodle although Brother said that before he met him.

"Character is doing the right thing when nobody 's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that 's right is to get by, and the only thing that 's wrong is to get caught", said JC Watts, an American politician. Yet many people seek opportunities to do what is right only when they think that someone else will view them favorably because of it; others conform to ideals they do not believe just so they can fit in with the group. A true hero is someone who always follows their morals, no matter what. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus is unusual in Maycomb because he works hard to act the same in private as he is when others are watching.
Atticus is portrayed as an exceptional father in Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mocking Bird. An exemplary father is someone who is a role model. Being a paternal figure is important because as a parent, you should guide your children to live a healthy life. During Tom Robinson’s trial, people expressed hatred towards African Americans because he was accused of raping a white young lady named Mayella. Due to this event, Scout was surrounded by people using the n word.
“He also is willing to stand up against the odds-he knows he’s ‘licked’ before he even begins” (Text 2). Atticus knows he will not be able to win this case even if Tom Robinson is innocent. Unfortunately the town and the jury are corrupt and will not give Tom a fair trial. Almost anyone can see that Atticus Finch defends Tom Robinson to show compassion through the “Golden Rule” and set an example for his children. Atticus is an idealist and knows what is right and what is wrong.
Atticus, a distinguished lawyer, raised his two kids, Scout and Jem, to be disciplined youth, practicing honest morals. Everyone in Maycomb admired Atticus for his respectable character, just as they all abhorred the Ewell family, for their cheating and lying ways. However, Atticus’ prominent role in town was suddenly challenged when he was chosen to defend in court Tom Robinson, a black man whom Mayella Ewell accused him of taking advantage of her. Eyes that once looked up to Atticus with deep admiration, now glared at him in disgust. In this town, the prejudiced jury refused to accept the obvious facts revealing Tom’s innocence.
Doing so showed a strong act of kindness because he didn't want Helen to hear about it after everyone else. Lastly, Atticus shows kindness after Bob Ewell, the main antagonist in the book besides racism itself, spits in his face. Although spitting in Atticus’s face was boorish and disrespectful, Atticus shows benevolence for Bob Ewell by defending him. Rather than saying horrible things about Bob Ewell, he tries to understand his point of view; he acts more superior than Bob will ever be. Not to mention, he is also protecting the Ewell children because he would rather be spat at in the face than
He guides the Boy throughout their journey together and shows morality in many ways. He believes has been entrusted by God to keep the Boy safe and to protect him from harm and the horrible evils in the world even if that means killing him before the bad guys can get to him. The Man wonders if he has it in him to do harm to his own son but if he has to do it he will. He has a strong love for his son and always wants to do the right thing.

If it hadn't been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are" (Hinton 12). While Johnny's parents detest him, the gang, though not his family by blood, defend him and each other, like they are.
