Everyone has their own heroes, from fiction characters such as Batman, and Superman to people that actually lived and breathe such as Ghandi. Either way heroes have created peace in us some way or for some reason.
My personal favourite superhero would have to be Superman. Yes he is fictional but he is the 'man of steel!' He brings hope to the people of metropolis and in many ways brings hope to little children who read the comics or watch the cartoons. For a lot of people Batman is there favourite superhero. Now I am not judging.....well maybe I am, but Batman really isn't a superhero. After reading a lot of Batman comics in the past couple months I have come to the conclusion that Batman is just a spoiled rich kid who is angry at the world and decided to become a man wearing a Bat suit. He has no strength or super power. He just has fancy toys and money. To add to the fact is he is just plan cocky! What do people see in him? Hes a jerk. Superman yes has a weakness as every superhero does. Its Kryptonite, but at least he has super powers. Fire out of his eyes, super speed, strength and hearing, not to mention flying and the fact that bullets bounce off of him!
The Hulk just has anger management problems, he's big, menacing and has strength. Spider man is a weak kid, who just so happens to get bit by a radioactive spider. Why does everyone scream when the see a little spider.....(including myself) but when 'Spider man' comes its all praise? There is no difference! He's just a giant spider! Kind of gross if you think about it.
As for all the rest of the heroes. Well they are not that great to begin with, that's why they don't have a movie out about them. I mean yes there is the Green Lantern, the Green Arrow, Aqua man, Superwomen, Flash, Captain America, etc. How often do you hear about them? Not very much, because the world would rather hear about the 'Man of Steel,' the freak in the bat suit, or the disgusting flying insect.
As for people that actually exist. Well I would have to say my heroes would be my family. They are awesome all around, and I personally look up to them all. They have been a great influence in my life and continue to be there for me no matter what.
This is what I think about in my free time. Interesting isn't it!
