Iron Giant (The Iron Giant)
The Iron Giant is made of… iron, of course. Despite his metallic nature, it seems like he still has a heart. He stayed true to the principles his friend, Hogarth, has instilled in him and chose to become a hero by saving the town from the missile’s destruction.
Captain America (Winter Soldier)
For some reason, Cap believed that his best friend was still in this monster created by Hydra, and he wanted to get through him at any cost. Even if the price was his life. He threw his shield away as Bucky hit him repeatedly. He bore no weapons but these words, “I’m with you till the end of the line.”
Iron-man (Avengers: Endgame)
At first, Tony Stark was reluctant to join the final mission to save the universe because he had a family to take care of. However, he changed of mind despite knowing the potential risks. His fear became a reality when he realized that the only winning option was him. Because he was Iron-Man, he snapped his fingers, saved the world, and left a noble legacy
It’s evident that throughout the whole movie, Anna is yearning for a connection with her sister. With their parents gone and the gates closed, Anna was quite lonely. However, Anna didn’t only need her sister, but she also loved her without conditions. That’s why she gave up the promise of a romantic relationship and her own life to save Elsa.
Batman (The Dark Knight)
The previous examples mention lives being sacrificed, but the top of this list is slightly different. In his own words, Batman was ready to be “whatever Gotham needed him to be.” Therefore, as Joker instigated chaos and darkness around, Batman understood that Gotham needed hope. As a result, he took the blame for Harvey Dent’s murder and crimes then endorsed a lousy reputation for eight years. How heroic is it to step down as a hero!
