The Hero Saga, Episode 2

Posted on

Heroes are distinct people that stand out from the rest of society.  They are held high for the deeds they have done, deeds that usually everyone, in general, knows about, and can appreciate those deeds.  On a public scale, we may view many people as heroes, but if we looked into their personal lives, would their heroic actions really be a reflection of those personal lives?  What if our heroes live immoral lives but still defeat the bad guy.  Does the conditional work like this?

If bad guy defeated, therefore hero?

On today’s episode of “The Hero Saga” we’ll explore some of the most renowned, famous heroes of the United States: the Marvel Superheroes!

Captain America

We might as well start out with the best of them!  Steve Rodgers was literally the “little guy” until he underwent an amazing scientific transformation!  Fighting for the good of the innocent and for what’s right, Captain America battles against the forces of the evil organization Hydra, the aliens under the command of Loki, and the mysterious Winter Soldier.  Steve Rodgers always is ready to concern himself with the needs of others and to put a stop to “bullying” wherever it appears.  Not only does he protect the world from evil as the First Avenger, he also advertises a hairstyle that is impossible to distort!    Let’s check his score:

  • Heroic attitude (kind, generous, patient courageous) 🙂
  • Protector 🙂
  • Good cause 🙂
  • Personal flaws :/

That’s a total of three smiles and one “iffy” face!  Incredible!  In all honesty folks, personal flaws are generally unavoidable, but Captain Perfect-Hair still came away with only an “iffy” face.  Give it up for the Captain!

Thor

Watch out for this guy, folks.  Our next contestant is Thor of Asgard, son of Odin.  Don’t be fooled and think that he can’t be dangerous with a foot-long hammer; that hunk of metal can really wreak havoc in his hands!  And unless you want a mess on your floor, I suggest that you don’t give him coffee.  Thor originally started out as a show-off and disrespectful young…demigod.  In spite of his foolishness, he learned his lesson and figured out what it means to be a real hero.  Thor will do anything to keep his friends and family safe, and especially his most beloved Jane.   Bold and headstrong, Thor is one of those tough-guy superheroes that doesn’t like it when somebody gets in his way…especially bad guys.  Let’s check out his score, shall we?

  • Heroic attitude (kind, generous, patient, courageous) :/
  • Protector 🙂
  • Good cause 🙂
  • Personal flaws :/

Although Thor scores a smile on the two most important characteristics, his pride and stubbornness can get him into real trouble.  But if you forget that what a hero Thor really his!!!!  Put your hands together, folks!

Iron Man

Tony Starks is a man of many…talents.  He can build robots, impenetrable armor, quote Shakespeare, and fix giant flying ships!  One might think he is seemingly a lazy, stuck-up, but super-smart guy….and you might be right!  But Iron Man has a way of dealing with those that do evil.  Although he supports many of the negative themes of our culture, let’s look at the bright side!  When fighting against Loki and his aliens, Iron Man valiantly carried a nuclear missile into the portal of the enemy…risking his life to save the world from imminent destruction!  And how could we forget his most sacrificial actions in regards to giving up his role as Iron Man for his girlfriend?  With so many clashing opinions of him, I can’t wait to see his score:

  • Heroic attitude (kind, generous, patient, courageous) 😦
  • Protector 🙂
  • Good cause 🙂
  • Personal flaws :/

Once again we have a contestant scoring on the major two characteristics.   I’m afraid we can’t give him anything for “Heroic attitude”, however.  Better luck next time, Mr. Starks!

The Hulk

Dr. Banner is a very unique man; he can turn into a giant green monster.  He really is a nice man.  You just have to avoid getting on his green–I mean bad side.  Dealing with bad guys with a roar and a huge fist or two, please stay out of the way of this hero.  Always angry, always ready to fight, the Hulk can end a battle quickly and therefore destroy the threat before more innocent lives are lost.  Hah, look at my positiveness!  Now for his score:

 

  • Heroic attitude (kind, generous, patient, courageous) 😦
  • Protector :/
  • Good cause 🙂
  • Personal flaws 🙂

It would appear that as a person Dr. Banner is a pretty good guy.  He also fights for a good cause.  But unfortunately, due to being a giant green monster that destroys everything in its path, he cannot categorize as a protector, or having a heroic attitude.  Put your hands together for the Hulk before he gets angry!

That’s all the time we have for today folks!  We aren’t sure when the next episode of “The  Hero Saga” will air, but we look forward to seeing you all again!

        I forgot to mention that I totally agree with what you said about Stark. I was positive that he’d be the worst one of them all. 😉

        He lacks a lot of the heroic attitude, and as Rogers said: “You’re not the type to lay down on a wire and let the other guy walk across… you may not be a threat but you’d better stop pretending to be a hero.”

        Aul responded:
        July 29, 2014 at 10:30 AM

        Yeah, Rodgers saw right through him 🙂
