Who are some well known mythical heroes?
Hercules (Heracles), Pegasus....I can't think at the moment.
The legendary or classicalhero's were considered to have godlike qualities and great powers, there were often helped in their endeavors by gods or other heroes. Hercules is one of the most well known ancient hero. Today's heroes however are different in the fact that they have gone from the solemn, proud, noble looking to looking like an athlete on steroids with supernatural abilities!!
