Thread: Heroes

  1. #1
    It was only right that we had a counter to the "Villain Topic". I think this could be open to a lot more variety because of anti-hero characters. I'm going to think about this for a bit and post later, maybe i'll be inspired by another post. But I'm torn between about 5 candidates at the moment - sleep could help!!

    Looking forward to reading your posts.

    Well my personal hero must be T.S. Garp from John Irving's "The World According to Garp"
    Ok, he's not the 'Indiana Jones'-type of hero , but cool nevertheless
    Can't remember a movie's name? Ask help at MovieWorld's Lost & Found

    With your indulgence I shall post a few as they occur to me.

    The first one is definitely Dent Arthur Dent, from the Hitch Hikers Guide Books.

    My favourite hero( if u can call it that way ) must be Rincewind, the wizard from the Discworld Novels. Well, technically it's more of an anti-hero, but still, he saved the Discworld several times

    Also Leon Uris and Neil Gaiman.

    Connor Larkin, Rory Larkin (Leon Uris - Trinity, Redemption)

    Shadow, Door, Hunter, Raguel (Neil Gaiman - American Gods, Neverwhere, Smoke & Mirrors)

    I didn't know Ayn Rand, Leon Uris, or Neil Gaiman were heroes.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Dirk Gently, also from Douglas Adams. His Dirk Gently's Hollistic Detective Agency. Haven't read it in a long time so the title may not be quite right, but I will correct it when I find it if no one beats me to it(JPaul(formerly known as Jmif?)) How things change in just 2 weeks
