A hero is not someone with tights or a cool outfit. They are not people who have superpowers (although they could help) heroes are people who inspire others. They give up everything, even if it means that they live in a dilapidated old shack. They give up everything so that they can help people even if it means that they have to sacrifice their own body for someone they don’t even know. In my paper I will be talking about my hero, Spiderman, what a hero means to me, and all of the types of heroes there are.
My hero is one of America’s favorite superheroes, Spiderman. As you may know Spiderman has superpowers, what you may not know is how he got them. When Peter Parker got his superpowers he was on a field trip with his class. While there he was bitten by a radioactive spider. Spiderman has battled a lot of different bad guys but he fought them for the same reason: to save innocent people's lives. This inspired a lot of people and gave them hope.
There are all types of heroes. All heroes are different, but they do share one thing in common, they want to help the innocent. Spiderman has superpowers and a cool costume and so does a lot of other heroes, but the strongest and most powerful heroes are the ones in your everyday life. Every hero does not have to have superpowers to save someone, they could just stand up for you when you are being bullied, or they could just help you do your homework when you don’t understand.
A hero is someone who does not care what people think of him, but what he does for the people. Not all heroes have to be able to do something amazing but they all do the same thing, they help people. They don’t have to look like someone out of a Marvel comic book; a hero could be the person on the other side of the hall. Both of these heroes help people everyday whether or not it is saving you from a mad scientist, or just saving you from getting yelled at by your science teacher. A hero helps someone no matter what he cost is, that is why I chose Spiderman as my hero.

Our hero is Superman. Also called "The Man of Steel", "The Man of Tomorrow", and "The Last Son of Krypton".
He is the one who saves the world day in, day out. He defends the people against the evil monsters. He is very strong, he can fly, he is super fast, he has got a freezing breath, super hearing, superman strength, regeneration etc. But there is one thing he can not bear and that is kryptonite, a substance coming from Krypton, Superman’s birth place. His enemy, Lex Luther knows this and uses it against Superman.
Superman was born on Krypton. Just before his planet Krypton exploded his father sent him to Earth. Superman was found by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who lived in a little town not far away from Smallville. Jonathan and Martha called their new son: Clark Kent.
Superman grew up on Earth with the name Clark. With his superpowers he fights crime, but when he doesn’t do that he works as a journalist for the Daily Planet. Superman always fights crime. You almost can say he never rests. When anybody has got a problem Superman will be there for them, he always must go to a quiet place to change from his undercover-clothes, to Superman.
Why is Superman a hero? Superman is a real hero because he saves a lot of people with his special powers. He is the strongest man in the world. He also has to fight with criminals who are after his powers. That’s why he is a big hero for a lot of people. Superman is a hero and not a celebrity. He saves people because that is good and not because he wants to be a famous man. This man is very important to us, because we like his films and comics.
