We’ve now done a significant amount of reading of sources for American views of the hero, including real-life presidents and make-believe superheroes. With examples from your reading, describe how you think these American heroes reflect the ideals of American society at the time they were written, and how well they reflect the modern society you live in. You may use the earlier material on Greek heroes for comparison, but only in a limited way.
