I am looking to mainly edit the classical hereos section, but also the modern heroes, images and introduction. I will be discussing the main greek heroes of Achilles, odysseus, and hector and The concepts of classical heroes, like their close relation to god and often character flaws (where the term Achilles Heel comes from).
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. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 23:04, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
