Well known heroes do not kill people with no sympathy or mercy. So is Odysseus really a hero? There is a lot of reasonings to both sides, he could be a hero because he was loyal to his homeland and men. He was also clever and dedicated to all his plans and ideas to conquer creatures and return home. On the other hand, he does not seem much like a hero because he was unloyal by having affairs on Penelope.
When people think of a hero they would instantly think of someone who is strong, bright, attractive, and brave. According to earlier analysis, various different qualities and potentials than these become obvious. Bravery, trustworthiness, courageousness, unselfishness, and the drive to try and put effort in something are just a few of the several overlooked and unnoticed qualities of a hero. The definition of heroism changes according to the situation and time. Heroes of the past are not necessarily considered heroes of present time and the same goes around.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a Marvel team super hero film. Nonetheless, it is controversial to the audience whether it fits the sub-genre of a team-up film such as The Avengers. Due to the characters, none of them have their individual movie like Iron Man. However, James Gunn uses points of view and actor’s acting to enhance the intimacy among the characters that makes this movie fits into the team super hero film genre. In addition, Gunn uses makeups to not make any of the roles too standout because they all have unique appearances that balance out on screen.
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.
Odysseus must either let his fate fall in the hands of death or prove himself to be a true hero. By persevering and not quitting, Odysseus eventually proves himself to be a true hero, by showing bravery, leadership, and intelligence. A true hero exults bravery and courageousness. Sometimes just by the way he or she stands, it can
Heroes are often portrayed as being perfect and not similar to humans. This is not actually the case in which every hero has some kind of weakness or flaw. This is the reason that one feels connected to heros. In Robert Nye's Beowulf: A New Telling, the theme is that even heroes are not perfect. This applies to Beowulf because although he saves the Danes from Grendel, he still has imperfections.
In the novel Beowulf, it gives me a good idea of what a real hero would look like. A real hero is a noble person brave enough that is willing to risk their lives to help others in danger. Also, a selfless, courageous person that only wants the feeling of goodness they did for someone. A person that takes time to listen for cries of help. Those are characteristics of a real hero.
For example, fireman can easily be deemed as heroes for saving lives, but they do not necessarily have internal problems or growth of their character. Thus, Shahrazad should be considered a hero because her strengths of her nobility, wealth, identifiability, selflessness, bravery, and intelligence all out weight her weaknesses of lacking an internal problem, character grow, and progressing through a
In fact, her inability to teach at a University is probably the main cause of her anger because she never complains about her heart problems or her artificial leg, in fact she does not hesitate to prove to people that she can function as well as anyone else; as demonstrated when she climbed up the latter ahead of the Bible salesman. However she constantly speaks philosophical statements to her mother, which suggests that she has a bruised ego, because she is unable to teach despite the fact that she earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy. These are the reasons she expresses her annoyance by making unnecessarily loud noise with her wooden leg whenever she moves around and she directs random outbursts toward her mother for no specific
Heroics in Megamind: Villian to Hero In Megamind the storyteller uses the plot archetype of good vs evil to reveal that we as humans will always have a good to face the evil in the world. This happens because there is always someone brave enough to fight for everyone no matter their past or if they were a hero or a villain. As the movie states there must be a balance in the battle between good and evil. In the beginning of Megamind, Megamind is a alien kid that looks way different than the other kids and got bullied because of it. This combined with the fact that he was raised in jail made his view skewed and he saw the world from an evil perspective wanting revenge on the ones who did him wrong.
