  • The Characteristics Of Gilgamesh: A Hero As A Hero

    A hero can be classified by many things. A hero can be superman, a police officer, and even your mom, but what makes a hero. Is it someone who can fly or shoot laser beams from their eyes or someone who saves a baby from a burning building. I’ll admit some of these characteristics are far-fetched since I don’t know anyone who can fly or randomly saves babies on a normal day. All heroes, including super ones all, have something in common, they're admired for their courage or an outstanding thing they’ve done. That’s what makes a hero a role model to others and their courage most likely leads to heroic deeds whether big or small. The question here is if Gilgamesh is considered to be a hero. We already know Gilgamesh is an epic hero, but does he have the qualities that a hero does. I believe Gilgamesh is not considered to be a hero. Hero, as stated above, is someone who is admired for their courage and from this courage heroic deeds come of it. Most likely they are considered to be a role model. The person in question is Gilgamesh, is he a hero. Gilgamesh is strong as stated in the Epic of Gilgamesh “no king or man ever equaled” “he was lordly in appearance and strongly to perfection” from that we can guess he is perfect,as he is two-thirds god. But being strong doesn’t necessarily mean Gilgamesh has courage. During the Epic, in fact, there were times where Gilgamesh had no courage and Enkidu was the one they stepped in. For example the bull of heaven, Enkidu was the one…

  • Compare And Contrast Batman Vs Superman

    battle Superman, a superhero whose powers include superhuman strength, vision, speed, and flight? That’s highly unlikely to happen!

    Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don’t care what you do to her. Tear her face, strip her to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!’” (Orwell 235-236). At this moment Winston does not come out as a hero or sound like one; Orwell shoes that Winston is only human and does not want to be killed. That is what makes him a hero.
