After he successfully exits the cave by blinding the cyclopes, he and his surviving men board the ship. As a result of his pride, he calls out to the monster, "If anyone asks who put out your eye, tell them it was Odysseus of Ithaca!”(Hinds 109). Considering the fact Polyphemus is the son of Poseidon, the cyclops calls out to him and therefore starts the troublesome voyage for Odysseus back home. When he returns to Ithaca he learns to control his hubris by replacing it with patience. Athena, the goddess of war and strategy, disguises Odysseus as a beggar because it is wisest to arrive in Ithaca without anyone being able to recognize him.
First of all, Odysseus proves to be a hero because he shows certain character traits such as being brave like Bethany Hamilton. He showed that he's brave when he and his men “bored that great eye socket” of Poseidon's son, Polyphemus (Homer, “The Cyclops” 337). Odysseus demonstrates his bravery by making a sharp stick and sticking it in the cyclops' eye, fully knowing that Polyphemus could have woken up any minute and easily have killed Odysseus and his men. By being brave, Odysseus was able to help his men get out of the cave, thus being a hero. Likewise, Bethany Hamilton showed that she's brave like Odysseus by “jumping back into the shark-inhabited waters.
“Just so that eyeball hissed around the spike.” Odysseus shows rash behavior because of the Cyclops killing of his men. The conflict is resolved when Odysseus and his crew are able to escape the Cyclops. The result of the resolution was that no more of his men would be killed by the Cyclops. Odysseus ran into conflict but wisdom and cunning helped him resolve them.
Both Moana and The Maze Runner by James Dashner use characterization to show the key trait of a literary hero is bravery. Both of the movies have examples of the main characters being brave and stepping up to a chance of death to save their friends. Moana finale makes it to the where she has to restore the heart, but she comes across the monster Te Ka. She realizes that she has to restore the heart to Te Ka but Maui tries to stop her, she then tells Maui “Let her come to me” and states “I have crossed
Beowulf arrives and devises a plan to kill the beast at night when he comes to attack the soldiers while they are sleeping. When the devil spawn, Grendel, appears in the hall slaughtering warrioriors, Beowulf attacks him with surprise ripping the monster’s arm from his socket. The monster escapes and later dies. Soon after Grendel’s death, the warriors encounter his mother. Beowulf tracks her to her underwater cave and kills her with a magic sword.

Beowulf grabs Grendel by his arm with his bare hands and rips off the monster’s arm with ease.

He saved peoples lives, and he took risks for other people and he also showed his soldiers respect. These arguments are invalid though, because in the end Odysseus was the only survivor left out of his entire crew. He saved peoples lives yes, but they would be killed sooner or later. He didn't even care enough about his troops even to trust them. He didn't tell them what was in the bag that Aeolus gave them.
Many of the advantages are that we can now successfully avoid illness and diseases because we can take out the gene that engenders it. Frankenstein is an example of a disadvantage of using genetic engineering. Victor Frankenstein is the creator of a monster who learns that because he is ugly and everyone hates him, he can kill Victor’s friends and family for making him the way he is. Victor creates the monster in order to destroy the meaning of death but the actions he takes after creating the monster leads to many more deaths than expected. Victor’s thoughts after bringing the monster to life were, “A mummy again endued with animation could not be so hideous as that wretch.
Odysseus’ leadership qualities The journey of Odysseus attempting to return home, to Ithaca, after being being in Troy is recited in Homer's epic named the Odyssey. Greek gods are extremely impactful in the voyage of his crew and himself. Without challenges, leadership skills are not able to be identified as clearly.
