What makes a great hero (protagonists)?!

Question: What makes a great hero (protagonists)!?
A protagonist is just the lead character in a story, not necessarily a hero!. The classic hero usually suffers through adversity and comes out the better for it on the other side - Kirk Douglas in Spartacus!.

The hero won't give up or let the system break him - Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke!.

A protagonist who is never afraid isn't a hero - e!.g!. the Terminator 2!. The reluctant hero has to overcome his fear for his own safety and do the right thing anyway to be truly heroic - Saving Private Ryan!.

Sometimes the protagonist is a hero not by choice but by necessity, one man against the bad world - Gary Cooper in High Noon or Bruce Willis in Die Hard!.

There is often an element of sacrificing their own needs (or lives) to help someone else!. A good example is Homer Wells in the Cider House Rules, giving up his personal desires to run the medical clinic!. also, Richard Dreyfuss in Mr!. Holland's Opus!.

Hope that helps!. If I find out from your teacher that you used my answer verbatim without giving me credit - "I'll be back!." "Be afraid!. Be very, very afraid!."Www@Enter-QA@Com
