This is my usual directionless, angsty crap, this time brought on by the scene in Hellboy II (so yes, this is strictly movie-verse, as I don't read the comics) in which the public attack Hellboy for "harming" a baby and "destroying" the city, and Liz defends him for "trying to help". I only own the DVDs.
What makes a man a man?
What makes a man a hero?
Does courage make a hero? Loyalty? Determination?
Does love make a hero? Friendship? Family?
Does loss make a hero? Sacrifice? Death?
Courage to be different.
Loyalty to his cause.
Determination to keep fighting.
Love enough to cross over.
Friendship strong enough to die for.
Family, not by blood, but something greater.
Loss of a father, turned him around.
Sacrifice of his freedom, to help the world.
Death was his destiny, he fought it.
Is it action that makes a man a hero?
Saving lives, saving cities, saving the world.
Can a man do all this and not be a hero?
Then why can't people see he's a hero?
