Everybody loves a hero. Look how popular the Star Wars movies are. Or comic book heroes like Superman and Spiderman. Have you ever considered what makes a hero? Is it superhuman strength? Or the ability to fly? Or is it something much more than that?

So Pit,
Who are your heroes and why do you think of them like that? What do you think defines a hero?


For me, my hero is my dad. He had a rough upbringing, but he struggled through and made it out against a lot of difficult odds. He got kicked out of school as a teenager, and he recently went to college to get his Bachelor's Degree in business and is now the CEO of his own company. A hero to me is someone who isn't neccessarily perfect, but has the good qualities to lead and help people, and who others can follow as a role-model.

Obviously anyone can be a hero, but to be a superhero you need superabilities. Duh.
People are bastards. Bastardcoated bastards with bastardfilling.

An hero.

But seriously. UG.

Love you all.

"No, don't call me a hero. Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs and get a distress call from the commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and fly around, fighting crime. Those are the real heroes. "

I once saw somebody carry a Guitar Hero controller in a case to protect it. He probably should have packed his testicles in there too, seeing as he won't need to use those for quite a while.

No. I only wrote that part about him because UG usually bitches when someone starts a thread, asks a question like that, and then doesn't answer the question themselves.

Do you seriously think that "an" should go before "hero"? "Hero" begins with a consonant sound. You put an "a" before words that begin with consonants.

An Hero is some one who commits suicide over a dumb reason, like losing their ipod, or shooting themselves trying to act out a suicide from halo.

I always pick the Blademaster if I play orc. The Lich King if I'm undead. Demon Hunter or the Keeper of The Groove as Night Elf and the Mountain King and then the Paladin as Human.
