The original Star Wars trilogy famously follows Joseph Campbell's model for the hero's journey, making Luke Skywalker's story the new hero quest for a modern age. With the nine-plus film saga complete, however, new story patterns have emerged as the hero's journey is imagined over and over for characters of different ages, genders, and backgrounds. The prequels offer the plot arc of the villain's journey through Anakin. Leia and Padme, while damsels in the men's story, break out to undergo their own ordeals. The heroine's journey is exemplified by Rey and Jyn. Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Vader must accept the loss of power and fade into spirit guardians, perpetuating the lifecycle. By the sequel era, the original trio become mentors to the younger generation and finally must do the same. Meanwhile, the Mandalorian explores a different form of the quest as he transforms from immature warrior to patriarch. This book tracks the journeys of over 20 characters throughout the franchise.

Whats a hero? Heroes come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and can be either male or female. They are everyday people in our communities and society. The label hero is given to someone for many reasons. The first thing that comes to mind are acts of bravery on the battlefielda police officer in the line of duty or a firefighter pulling someone from a burning building. The word hero is a very complex term, and it has evolved overtime. A hero can be someone who inspires others to do something good for themselves and others in their community. A hero is one who sets high standards for himself or herself, someone whose deeds and accomplishments are worthy of praise by others. A hero is one who overcomes tremendous odds against him and inspires others to do the same. He is a person who is not afraid to stand up for what he believes is right, someone who helps when the benefit and praise is knowingly going to someone else. They are soldiers who choose to defend our country while knowing and understanding that they may not survive their journey of service to their country. This book is by Mose M. Kinsey.

Epic battles, hideous monsters and a host of petty gods--the world of Classical mythology continues to fascinate and inspire. Heroes like Herakles, Achilles and Perseus have influenced Western art and literature for centuries, and today are reinvented in the modern superhero. What does Iron Man have to do with the Homeric hero Odysseus? How does the African warrior Memnon compare with Marvel's Black Panther? Do DC's Wonder Woman and Xena the Warrior Princess reflect the tradition of Amazon women such as Penthesileia? How does the modern superhero's journey echo that of the epic warrior? With fresh insight into ancient Greek texts and historical art, this book examines modern superhero archetypes and iconography in comics and film as the crystallization of the hero's journey in the modern imagination.

Essay from the year 2015 in the subject Cultural Studies - Basics and Definitions, grade: 1, , course: Mythology, language: English, abstract: In this study the author explores how myths can reveal a culture’s value system and what they believe an ideal member of their society would be like. Though there are many similarities between the hero myths from each culture, their differences are what will convey the unique attributes and beliefs of a specific culture. This research addresses issues of myth origins and the social interplay between myth and the individuals of a culture. The hero myth has always played a major role in popular culture and has influenced thousands of stories that have been told and written in novels, movies, as well as comic books. The hero figure is so deeply embedded in the collective social conscience that it is hard to believe what a society would look like without it. Because of the profound impact the hero has on a culture, a researched study on its influence at the individual, societal and even global level yields an abundance of information that inform other areas of study such as psychology, religiosity, biology and many more.

Comic book superheroes arose in industrialized America as 20th-century iterations of Carl Jung's archetypes, replete with Joseph Campbell's monomythic stories that echoed those of the halcyon gods of the past. Like America, Superman and the other superheroes successfully represented our idyllic persona selves and they projected their shadow side upon externalized "evil" forces. By the 1960s, a great shifting occurred when Marvel Comics introduced three-dimensional heroes seeking individuation, but beset with tragic Achilles' heels of anxiety and tragic emotional wounds. Using a heuristic approach, this thesis will study from a depth perspective how Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, and the pantheon of Marvel Heroes reflected the pathology of the American culture of the 1960s, as it wrestled with its own wounds--such as racism, poverty, the generation gap, and the Vietnam war--and the zeitgeist of a polarized society craving wholeness and integration.
