A romantic hero is a larger-than-life figure, usually of mysterious origins, who performs extraordinary deeds with the aid of magic.

  1. My favorite hero in history is Achilles because he was basically unbeatable and in the movie he fought very well in action. In modern times it would probably be Violet or Dash from The Incredibles because being able to run really fast or be invisible pretty cool. You wouldn't need a car to get anywhere and you would never be late to class and if you were you could sneak in with your invisible powers.

  2. Who cares about romantic heros, its all about the true heros like BATMAN. My favorite history hero is batman, my favorite modern hero is also batman. Why because batman is the only hero that don't need superpowers because we all know that superpowers are FAKE. Someone like batman he takes risk he have skills he is wise, smart. That all. Batman> of all the other heros.

    (Hey Ms.Cestone leave a comment saying "good job" or something)

  4. My personal faviorate romantic hero in history is Captain Underpants. That guy is awesome, really. Around 8-12 years old i had a little extra pudge and a bald head so i felt i could relate to the physical appearance of captain underpants. I got so into his books. Also, in modern times i would say Captain America is the best hero because hey, this is america. If you dont like it leave it.

  5. My favorite hero in history is Superman. He is a larger than life figure and many people look up to him as a hero and an inspiration. He has a mysterious past and he forgot his past because of an accident. We also know he is the last of his people. He is super strong, fast, and can fly. It is easy for many people to admire these amazing powers. My favorite modern hero is time is Hiro from Heroes because the power to control time would be amazing. He doesn't look like a hero but he acts like it so that is what counts. These are honorable traits.

  6. My favorite character is Hellboy. He is like Satan but instead him causing chaos he helps out the world and gets rid of the villains. My favorite character in modern time is Beowulf, he is a human that can conquer or kill anyone in his way. He has no limits when it comes to life and will do any mission and be successful.

  7. My favorite historical hero would have to be the story of Achilles. He was a warrior during the Trojan war. As a newborn, his mother dipped him into the River Styx in attempt to make him immortal. However, she forgot to dip his achilles which was his one fatal flaw/weakness.

    In modern times, Spiderman is my favorite superhero. A bite from a radioactive spider causes him to develop supernatural powers. I'm sure everyone is envious of the ability to climb up walls and fly threw New York City. While this was a fun and new experience, Spiderman had to realize that he had a lot of responsibilities with his newly acquired powers.

  8. I would have to say that my all time favorite hero character would be Captain America. Captain America is a hero that appeared in order to help citizens to feel better about there country. He came out during a hard time in history and brought inspiration to join the army. He showed bravery and strength both physically and mentally.

  9. My favorite super hero is spider. I like Spiderman because he doesn't mind risking his life and putting his safety in jeopardy for others. who wouldn't want to be like spiderman? He has super strength , the ability to cling to most surfaces, shoot spider-webs and is able to react to danger quickly with his "spider-sense".

  10. My favorite historical "superhero" is easily Odysseus, of Homer's "The Odyssey". He is an inherently flawed man, but despite his imperfections he challenges his fate, and restores his kingdom.

    My favorite modern hero is likely Allan Quatermain from "King Solomon's Mines". He represents courage and steadfastness in the face of adversity, and fearlessly explores the far-reaches of Africa in the 19th century.

  11. My favorite hero is iron man. I love the movie because it's so full of action and iron man is like the typical romantic hero. He's rich and good looking and he also saves lives. He made his own "magic" suit of armor that helps him save lives and fly.

    My favorite hero throughout history is Achilles from "The Illiad". I like this story because I can really relate to it. Achilles is a great fighter but he also lets his tallent get to his head..

  12. My favorite super hero would be violet from the incredibles because who wouldnt want to be invisible? Another favorite super hero would be spider man as well because he basically can do anything. These are my 2 favorite super heroes because they both risk their life regardless the situation and have powers.

  13. My favorite hero from history would have to be Achilles. This is because he is extremely powerful and honorable at the same time. Also I can kind of relate to him because we both have bad achilles. My favorite hero from modern times would have to be spiderman. One reason for this is because he only uses his magical powers to help people and then when they're not needed he won't use them and acts like a regular guy. Also the stuff he can do is pretty unique which is cool.

  14. My favorite hero of all time is Batman because he is pretty much just a normal citizen/person with a bunch of gadgets and technology. The only thing special about him to set him apart from the normal person is that he is very wealthy and very strong. I tend to like heroes that are almost normal people because it makes the stories more believable and realistic. Batman seems like he can actually be a real person in real life unlike other super heroes.

  15. My favorite super hero of all time is Batman because he does not have super powers but changes his city because of his ability to invent and create weapons to protect the city and concealing his identity at the same time. Even though he does not have magic capabilities he performs as well or better than those with magic powers.
