Topic: Who is your greatest hero? (Daily Post)

I decided to think who is the greatest anti-hero hero. Hands down it would have to be Wile E. Coyote from the cartoon “Road Runner”.

"It sucks to be a Hero"

 

Although he is somewhat evil and cunning he never actually does anything bad, but he has some characteristics of a hero.

hero (male) and heroine (female) came to refer to characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self-sacrifice

 The guidelines for the series are;

  1. Road Runner cannot harm the Coyote except by going “beep, beep.”
  2. No outside force can harm the Coyote—only his own ineptitude or the failure of Acme products. Trains and trucks were the exception from time to time.
  3. The Coyote could stop anytime—IF he were not a fanatic. (Repeat: “A fanatic is one who redoubles his effort when he has forgotten his aim.” )
  4. No dialogue ever, except “beep, beep” and yowling in pain.
  5. Road Runner must stay on the road—for no other reason than that he’s a roadrunner.
  6. All action must be confined to the natural environment of the two characters—the southwest American desert.
  7. All tools, weapons, or mechanical conveniences must be obtained from the Acme Corporation.
  8. Whenever possible, make gravity the Coyote’s greatest enemy.
  9. The Coyote is always more humiliated than harmed by his failures.
  10. The audience’s sympathy must remain with the Coyote.
  11. The Coyote is not allowed to catch the road runner.

Yes he is definitely my hero!
