Campbell divides the Heroes Journey into three different phases; Departure, Initiation, and Return. Each phase has certain stages where the hero is faced with unique challenges that test him or her.

His story was so devastating but inspiring, that it had to be told the right way. As Michael grew up in the rough part of Memphis, he struggled until Leigh Ann came into the picture.

Throughout the history of literature, it is clear that some storylines occur more than others. An example of this is the classic hero’s tale; which in western literature has evolved from Greek epics such as the story of the warrior, Odysseus, to American comic-book superheroes like Superman. As a childhood fanatic of these specific style of stories, I am typically inclined to watch any superhero movie that is released. Over the years I have begun to spot out patterns within these movies. After watching Fyodor Bondarchuk’s two part film, the Inhabited Island, and using my past knowledge of one of my favorite genre, I became convinced that this is another instantiation of the typical western superhero journey due to its character development of the main protagonist, Maxim, and its use of special effects.
In Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, the themes of free will and free fate are explored through the experiences and relations of Ishmael, Queequeg, and Ahab. Melville uses subtle details within the novel to make readers question whether his characters could have prevented their own doom. Melville makes clear that the passengers upon the Pequod are in charge of their destiny such as Ishmael choosing to go on voyage, yet he also notes that there may be an outside force that is in control, such as using Ahab’s inability to explain what drives him to go after the whale. Melville uses examples in the text to acknowledge the recurring presence of both themes in the novel without explicitly choosing either sides. He focuses on the relationships between Ishmael and Queequeg and Ahab and the whale throughout the book to highlight the complexities of free will and fate and how they play an important role in Moby-Dick.
The famous hero of Greek mythology, Achilles, is said to be invincible since his mother dipped him in the River of Styx, but he still failed to survive when the Trojan prince shot him in his heel. It goes to show that no matter how strong, wise and powerful a hero is, he or she cannot escape the inevitable knocking of death. But in order to get the desired immortal life, a hero must first prove that he or she is worthy to gain such privilege. According to Joseph Campbell, a person should undergo a quest away from his or her comfort zone to unleash one’s capability through challenges and temptations. If a person becomes successful in the given quest, it goes to show that the intending hero
The majority of authors or movie writers have one common factor; they have a hero somewhere in the plot. Ask a friend to summarize a favorite movie or book. They could easily point out who the hero or villain is. However, heroes do not only exist in movies or in books, but they exist in real life. Despite our culture’s fascination with Marvel Comics and DC Comics, we most commonly hear about war heroes.While the definition of a hero varies, I personally deem a hero as a person who is selfless, noble, or outstandingly courageous.
