The Hero

The Herohe·ro/ˈhirō/nouna person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities."a war hero"synonyms:brave man, champion, man of courage, great man, man of the hour, conquering hero, victor, winner, conqueror, lionheart, warrior, paladin, knight, white hat

Why do we love heroes? It’s been that way forever. The Greeks wrote about Hercules. The ancient ‘people of the book’ wrote about Samson. Modern movies give us Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

My latest novel is about heroes (there is a team of heroes) and of villains (there are several to choose from). I began to wonder about the heroes I created, about their appeal, and about the whole world of heroes.

This series of blog entries will explore our favorite heroes and share background on how they came to be. I share some trivia I hope you’ll enjoy.

I will delve into the universe of different heroes:

  • James Bond – Skilled spy with martini in hand

  • Indiana Jones – Professor with Alter Ego

  • Mission: Impossible – The Team of Heroes

  • Robert Langdon – Everyman

  • Superman – The Superhero

  • Jack Reacher – The Loner

  • Alex Cross – The Cop

  • Sherlock Holmes – The Sleuth

So, tune into my blog, watch for new entries, and enjoy.
