Superman or Idol Man?

I came to conclusion many years ago, but I’m going to talk about this today. A hero for anyone is an idol, or someone that you look up to, and you want to be like that person. People like Superman, Aquaman, the Human Torch, and finally Ironman. They are all known because they have “superpowers” and they use them to save people from villains. But, there’s a difference between a “Hero”, and a “Superhero.” Like I said, superheros use “powers” to save the day. But, a real hero is a person you look up to, a person that is your idol. When you were little, your mom was your hero. She was there when you were sad or crying. (This applies to dads too.) Or stepdads or grandmas or anybody out there that cares about you. Maybe when you grow up your idol is a Basketball player or Bill Gates or something. That’s the difference I want everyone in this world to know.

“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.” –  Christopher Reeve


  • What does this quote mean to you?

This quote means to me that a hero is a person that is important to you, because they do things just for you or for many people. Just like Christopher Reeve if a person can use strength to get past obstacles just for you or for many people, that person is your hero.

  • Going back to what we discussed at the beginning of this unit, name two traits a hero should have and why they need those traits.

Two traits a hero should have, and why they need those traits are this.  First, character. In order for a person to be a hero to you, they have to have a good character, and be nice, or someone that is important to you in your life. If a person does not have a good personality or character when they are around you, they aren’t your hero. But, a person you can trust, and look up to, and that you enjoy being with is most likely your hero or idol.

  • Who in your own life do you consider a hero?  Why?

My mom actually. She is always there for me, she isn’t the kind of person that is a know-it-all, because SHE KNOWS EVERYTHING. She always knows how to cheer me up, and she’s always there to congratulate me when I do good. She also knows how make me improve myself if I do bad on something.

  • Name one person from history that has the qualities of a hero?  Why would you pick that person?

One person that has the qualities of a hero from back then was, Franklin Roosevelt, here’s how He led America  through World  War II, and saved everyone from the Holocaust in Germany. He also led America to a better economic state, and won World War II for all of us.

    This post is cool and inspirational because all of us kids have one or more Idols in our lives because we want to be the person we look up to because we think that they are cool.
