What is a Hero? What is a hero? Is it a person that saves the world, like a leader, or a person who is caring and generous enough to help out with someone who needs help, like mowing a lawn for someone who is hurt or sick? The answer is a person who is loyal, inspiring, and fearless, for example, Mal from Return of the Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz. A hero is not a person who does evil or who stands by and watches.
Some people think that the only traits that a Hero has to have is that he is strong and looks good. But that is only part of the traits of a good hero or that a hero is supposed to have. Heroes have to be daring and willing to do things that other people may not want to do like in the Odyssey he choses to go to the cyclops house and know body else is willing to do it it. Also, they have to be smart and clever for example at the beginning Odysseus makes the Trojan horse to get into the city and also he puts bee’s wax into his crews ears so they won’t be lured to their death by the singing Sirens. Finally, he has to be strong in the heart because Calypso wanted him to stay with her and be immortal but he declined saying he wanted to go back to his homeland and back to his wife and son he has never seen.
What is a hero? That is a question that a lot of people have been asking each other. I think a hero is a person that does something honorable or even picks up something a person dropped on the ground or holds the door open for another person. There are many different kinds of heros in the world. To some people a hero is from a comic book.
A hero is someone who puts their life on the line for others expecting nothing in return. A hero has characteristics they show and three of these are bravery and courage, wisdom, and the ability to keep going no matter what challenges they face. The movies Jack Reacher and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol contain two main characters that are great examples of a hero. Jack Reacher and Ethan Hunt both portray heroic characteristics.
What makes a someone a hero? Is it heroic deeds and grand achievements? Or is it their kindness and humility? The war hero Alvin York is both brave, and humble, making him a definite hero.

As humans, we tend to idolize people from all over the world for their remarkable qualities, bravery, actions, skills, leadership or ways of life. These people are often referred to as heroes, whether it is a leader, Superman, or a local community hero, they all share something in common, and it’s not a cape. What makes each of these people heroes? Their extraordinary character traits set them apart from their less noteworthy peers. While there is a myriad of traits that heroes possess, the most significant ones are their bravery, their willingness to ask for help, and their strength to always do what is honorable.
Hero, what is a hero? Most people think a hero is someone in a fancy costume who can fly and goes around saving the world. Others may think a hero is someone who has gone through a traumatic experience and has an inspirational story to tell. But maybe a hero is something completely different. In S.E Hinton’s novel “The Outsiders”, it is said that there are many types of heroes.
What is a hero? Is it a being or idea classified by tights and capes or is it something more? A hero can be anything their society makes them out to be, which is the case in Etheridge Knight’s short story, “Hard Rock Returns to Prison.” A hero can also be a reassuring mother of a frightened child, as shown beautifully in John Hope Franklin’s short story, “The Train from Hate.” In both stories, the theme heroism plays important roles in their respective plots.
Raldo Waldo Emerson once said. “A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.” My personal definition of a hero is someone who does great things for their community or country without expecting anything in return. My personal hero is my dad because he works in construction outside every day in the heat or cold and he comes home exhausted from work to make dinner for me, my mom, and himself. He even deals with all of my craziness and silliness.
