the heroes we need

What determines a hero? Character? Personality? Behavior? All of the above?

Many of us use fiction to escape from the despair of reality, to venture into a world where heroes are alive and well, kicking evil’s butt. Whether its through movies, books, comics, TV shows, or what-have-you, we all long to live in a world with heroes we can look up to and emulate.

I want to highlight some of the heroes of the fictional realm that I admire.

#1 – Katniss Everdeen – The people she loves mean everything to her. She sacrificed herself to save her sister and was unwilling to kill the man she loved even if it meant she might die.Hunger Games... Another movie I didnt think Id care for but all in all ima fan really good movie!!:

#2 – Daryl Dixon – Most people might not consider Daryl a hero, but he has shown time and time again that he would do anything to protect the people he cares about. And to him, family is more than just blood.

When Daryl slings a crossbow over his shoulder, the heavens part and a blinding white light of sexual heat appears. True statement. (28 Reasons Why Daryl Dixon Is The Sexiest Man On “Walking Dead”):

#3 – Steve Rogers/Captain America – Good ol’ Cap. Justice, loyalty, honor, and the defense of the innocent and those he loves are all that matter to him. Repeatedly, he puts the good of others before his own well-being.

Which Superhero Should You Hook Up With? You got: Captain America. (Steve Rogers is the ultimate boy scout, but if you’re into an old-fashioned guy who happens to be a perfect human specimen and a legendary war hero, this is the jackpot. He’ll treat you very well.):

#4 – Samwise Gamgee – Even when the One Ring drove Frodo mad – to the point of cursing the loyalty of his best friend, Sam stood by him and never gave up on him. Sam saw past the darkness in the world. He saw the good.

March 2013 - Sean Astin - Toronto (Goonies & since the age of 7!):

#5 – Owen Grady – He saved people from dinosaurs at the (almost) expense of his own life. Plus he’s epic and played by Christ Pratt. What more needs to be said?

Daenarys - Mother of Dragons OWEN - FATHER OF RAPTORS that is all:

The world needs heroes. And unfortunately they can’t always be found in real life. Sometimes we have to turn to fiction to find peace for our souls. And what’s wrong with that?
