Second, where are the women? Seriously! I'll blog about that on that on Friday.
I pulled five heros from here and posted them below.
1. Indiana Jones
2. Han Solo
3. Robin Hood
4. Obi-Wan Kenobi
Now, think about it. All of these guys can really kick some butt. And half of them, we don't know if they're good or bad... they're kind of in between (Robin Hood robs, Batman lives in a secret cave and attacks people in dark alleys, Han Solo's only helping for money).
So what makes them heros? Is it the fact that they choose to use their dark talents for good? The fact that they kick butt? The fact that they risk their lives for others? What is it?
What heros do you love? Love to hate?
What makes your hero better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual?
