The only real heros are those who work in silence , everyday, under the most real of obsticles, who are there every day, the vast majority of these heros do so without pay without rewards of any kind except the silent peaceful heartfelt knowledge that what they do is good........
My last but one hub was about my favourite real-life hero - a major in the British army (at the time) who basically took us to war without government permission, and saved 1000s of lives in a small African country.
In general I like the kind of hero who is a rebel, maybe an outcast of some sort, fighting against a corrupt system.
I like the reluctant dark hero type who was once a bad guy and still seems all intimidating but really is just a big crusty teddybear for the right girl.
This hero would be the type who does not follow the rules yet always gets the job done w/out compromise or politically correct :::shivers, I do so hate that word:::: trite.
He would love old people, animals and children and always help them but at the same time hate corporate types, politicans and fake peeps in particular. He would eat environmental polluters and child abusers for breakfast w/ black coffee and a smoke.
My favorite type of hero would be the ex-bad guys. He used to be bad, but has recently changed sides due to some type of betrayal by a partner in crime or some other rival bad guy. I like the heroes that are still learning how to be good - they honestly try, but often times fail.
