I) To begin with, the heroes used to dream through the myths they represent.

1. From a first point, they offer a dream world " quotation marks " with a different world where the laws of nature and man are not the same as on Earth.

To illustrate this point , we have Peter Pan , for example , the novel by James Matthew Barrie, the story tells the myth of eternal youth and offers a world without rules without parents makes children and gives them wings dream. Or even in the Harry Potter novel by JK Rowling, where magic is part of our world where love beats the darkness.

These fictional hero in a fictional world tell myths that human can not reach , it is an unreal perfection and this is the second point of this part .

2. If a second point , it is clear that mainly fictitious myths shows an unreal perfection. These are the best of all worlds that man would reach , knowing that it is still impossible to " mere human ." This can be seen , especially in the stories aimed primarily girls, who put forward the cult of beauty, like Sleeping Beauty , Cinderella ...

3. On a third point , the heroes that make us all dream , also allow us to imagine with a personality and a different life. To illustrate this idea, we have the Fantastic 4 movie, by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, with super powers, physical and very different personalities.

1. First, the man tries to reach the same perfection as his model. Since birth, mirror neurons affect our actions, we imitate what we see without necessarily realizing it, as a result, we need people to guide us towards perfection. I will take as an example, Martin Luther King, I saw the biography. This man is a hero because he was able to affirm his ideas face many opponents, he defended black men to have respect and peace in his country. He made ​​the courageous acts, heroic, on either its boycotts and speeches. He is a hero and someone to imitate and follow, especially for black men (as Nelson Mandela).

2. Finally, secondly, having models, influences society to make the best, which seems good. For example, during the attack of September 11, firefighters who were there are now considered as heroes. If we make the link with the fictional heroes I mentioned before, we will be able to compare these firefighters Fantastic Four for example. They have shown great courage, strength and impressive patriotism.

In conclusion, society create myths and heroes to dream the best of the world, imagine perfection. And
