Why hasn't someone added a section on the hero cycle? This would seem intergral to any discussion of a hero, especially the literary or film hero. I know that a link was crafted for Campbell, but I think this page needs more.
Why has my latest addition been reverted? Why aren't they heroes? All right, one of them is technically a heroine. PatGallacher 17:44, 2005 July 10 (UTC)
Might it make more sense to seperate the different definitions or types of heroes? This page just seems confusing since it's a conglomeration of so many different definitions (some quite different). It seems that there is a traditional mythological hero, Another type might someone who does outstanding deeds. Another might be roughly equivalent to the protagonist in a story. Glomming all the definitions together just makes for confusion. And then the hero list has all the different senses jumbled together as though they all mean the same thing.
Self-sacrifice for some greater good of all humanity
The introduction states that a hero is a character who display "the will for self-sacrifice" for "some greater good of all humanity". To me that just seems to be true for a subset of characters considered heroes. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:04, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
