    hero in movie? i guess that'll have to be Milo Hoffman, from Antitrust. He's a total geek...:p

    in real life it would have to be Jonathan Ive :)

    Keaton has been a hero of mine for a long time, especially in charcter. And I can't say I've enjoyed watching anything more in my life than Buster Keaton movies.

    Oh and when I was younger I was pretty hooked on Spider-man.

    I'd have to say Green Lantern, he is all for justice and what not.

    I also like the black version of him in Justice League.

    Edit:
    Buddha (I'm not even a Buddhist, can you believe it?)
    Anti-Christ (Insiders Interweb joke, if your christian and don't get it, don't worry about it)
    Old skool Batman, the one either during the 90's comic cook OR the Real person one, action series.
    *wham* *pow*
    'Holy Smokes Batman!' :rolleyes:

    ya that it.

    Goku. Also his son Gohan -- when he was a kid. He was a very serious badass as a kid. Now he's just goofy. Vegeta is badass as a good guy.

    The original He-Man.

    Brett Favre -- the man is all heart. Gotta love him. Don't disagree with me! I said "you've got to love him," and you do.

    Damien Vryce+Gerald Tarrant. Gandalf, Frodo. Keneda. Sarah Conner.

    Spawn. Wolverine. Spawn. Spawn again.

    Cloud. Ashley Riot.

    Henry V, Jeanne de Arc (it's not Schizophrenic! The uniting theme is the hatred for the Dauhpin [sp?]).

    John Carmack.

    The passengers of flight 93.

    Isn't that "MacLeod"?

    "Duncan McLoad" sounds like a porn star name...

    Being a BMXer, I'd have to say Dave Mirra. He's a damn good role model

    No more heroes any more...

    All the media goons are too compromised by their greed for exposure, all the politicians are corrupt or in the corporate pocket, all the scientists are tied to the budget strings... the list goes on:(

    Every real "hero" I ever had lost it in some way, no-one can live up to the crushing weight of expectation.

    The best heroes are fictional, and because they are fictional they can be perfect, here's a few:

    The Grey Lensman
    Indiana Jones
    Roland Chastain
    Cheradenine Zakalwe
    Sharrow
    Ellen Ripley
    Deckert/Roy Batty
    Joshua Calvert
    Frodo and Sam
    Bilbo and Gandalf
    Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn
    Thelma and Louise
    Neo

    That's just from the top of my head, I guess Sherlock Holmes should be there, and many others.

    Stephen Hawking is a hero, but he's also human.

    wdlove -- what about non-religious?

    I think that everyones Hero helps tell a tale about what they believe in.

    Tho its kinda hard when a person names alot of people... ;)

    Seven comments posted before Steve Jobs came up :D Come on folks, what were you thinking!

    Superhero: I'm going to say Arch Angel from the old X-Factor comics. He was supposed to be in the latest X-Men movie in some fashion. I hope he's at least mentioned on the dvd.

    Real Life: No one any of you would know. Isn't that how it's supposed to be?

    Zhang Zi-Yi's character from CTHD, Jen, because she was a hero and a villain.

    Such a multidemnsional character played so well. You gotta love Zhang Zi-Yi.

    Oh, and the Iron Monkey (played by Donnie Yen - a major icon of the martial arts hollywood scene) from The Iron Monkey :).

    He embodied the search for equality, and used aggression as a means of promoting equality.

    Plus his fight scenes were ****ing awesome ;).

    I don't have a real hero. I strive to be better, and I don't try to be like any sole person. I strive to have the heart of Nelson Mandella, the drive of Beyonce Knowles, and the spirit of my mother. I am affected by everyone in small ways. I have no real life hero, actually I have millions but they are all pretty much equal.

    Al Delionobus, aka "Mr. D", my junior high band director. He was a great musician, a great teacher, and a great friend. I try to be like him every day. God rest his soul.

    Regards,
    Gus

    For a non-religious my choice is Winston Churchill, he overcame great odds during WWW II! His whole life was a struggle against the odds! A man of extraordinary character, "Never give in."

    Real Life: Jesus Christ, Lord and savior, not to be confused with Jesus Christo who works in IT, though he's a nice guy...

    Fake Life: Deadpool, sort of a hero in an anti-hero in a hero in an anti-hero body...he's got issues.

    Nerd Life: Miyamoto, inventor of the greatest games of all time...although he does stifle productivity...that &*#^@(
