just had a crazy, wild imagination all my life, and science
fiction is the greatest outlet for me. Steven Spielberg"
A hero (masculine or gender-neutral)
or heroine (feminine) is a person or character
who, in the face of danger and adversity
or from a position of weakness, displays
courage or self-sacrifice-that is, heroism-for
some greater good. Historically, the first
heroes displayed courage or excellence as
warriors. The word's meaning was later extended
to include moral excellence. In modern popular
fiction, a superhero is a type of heroic
character possessing extraordinary talents,
supernatural phenomena, or superhuman powers
and is dedicated to a moral goal or protecting
the public. A female superhero is sometimes
called a superheroine. Fiction centered
on such characters, especially in American
comic books since the 1930s, is known as
superhero fiction. Real-life superheroes
(RLSH) is a phenomenon of fandom where people
inspired by superhero fiction dress up in
costumes or masks in order to perform community
service such as neighborhood watch or in
some cases vigilantism
is any creature, usually found in legends
or horror fiction, that is often hideous
and may produce fear or physical harm by
its appearance and/or its actions. The word
"monster" derives from Latin monstrum, an
aberrant occurrence, usually biological,
that was taken as a sign that something
was wrong within the natural order. Classic
monsters spawn from legends and fictional
stories. Well known monsters include Dracula,
Frankenstein's creation, Wolf-man, The Mummy,
The Invisible Man and zombies, to name a
HERO AND MONSTER CULTURE
Fans of science fiction, horror, fantasy,
anime and almost everyone else just loves
heroes and monsters. They are part of almost
every story told, the good and the bad.
Heroes and Monsters amplify what we feel
or fear. Heroes and Monsters are what make
a good story and people the culture aspires
to be like or have a particular character
or saying they though was great. You find
Heroes and Monsters in almost all video
games, cartoons, moves, comics, books, theater,
monuments, biblical stories, all the way
back to mythical Gods. Heroes and Monsters
are such a part of human culture they don't
seem to be separatable. Monsters scare us
out of our seat with destruction and terror,
while heroes are the friends that come to
save us, lay down or risk their lives so
we may live or be helped.
WORLD IMPACT: Look
at any young child's shirt or lunchbox,
and there is a good chance it is the face
of some sort of superhero. Look at the movie
theaters and there is a good chance that
a movie about a superhero has been released
recently. These superheroes are everywhere
in American society, so what impact do they
have on popular culture, television, cinema,
and the youth of America? Our society has
been infected in every way with the superhero
craze. This obsession with fictional people
has infected the population, and we have
looked to the Superheroes to feed our addiction.
We love them because they are better than
ourselves and they can make the choices
we aren't able to. Superman chooses to save
people because he knows he can and should
because of his superhuman abilities, while
Batman punished criminals because he has
a need for justice and is willing to take
the extra step to get things done because
he knows it is the right thing to do. Superheroes
give us the opportunity to jump out of our
own lives and fantasize about being someone
else, someone with power, someone that can
make a difference. Superheroes might not
be logical in their super abilities, but
they embody the moral desire to do the right
thing, and they symbolize the good in all
of us. People have taken Superman and Batman
and accepted them into society as one of
their own, and given them a special respect
and honor that comes with the power of good.
Few real people, if any have had their life
displayed in so many movies, television
shows, cartoons, and comic books. This is
how superheroes have impacted American society,
by giving people something more that themselves
to believe in. One must also think that
without the Monsters the Hero's have no
challenges or problems to overcome and do
the right thing despite it all. Good seems
a whole lot brighter flame with evil in
HONOR the HERO'S and the MONSTERS and together
they are an INCREDIBLE thing to Experience

Daily News' Hometown Heroes in Transit
Transit Authority workers exemplify 'heroism,
bravery, compassion and leadership,' notes
Sen. Chuck Schumer, a judge and presenter

8 million riders a day.'
Smith didn't panic. As one rider wrestled
with the gunman in the aisle, trying to
pull away the weapon, Smith ensured his
other passengers were safely off the bus
- then drove to the nearest police precinct.
Police promptly made the arrest, with
a big assist from Smith. "The guy had
a ton of courage," Transport Workers Union
Local 100 John Samuelsen said of Smith.
"He could have just gotten off that bus."

LIFE SUPER HEROES
who are these modern day heroes? They
are our neighbors, our friends, our family
members. They are artists, musicians,
athletes, and yes, politicians. Their
actions serve as reminders that as most
giving today has become reactive-digital
and removed, temporarily soothing our
guilt and feelings of helplessness-we
have blinded ourselves to simple principles
and practice of compassion and goodwill.
