Clear all


The most self-explanatory of the genres, the SH contains a hero with a special “power” (this power can also be a mission), a “Nemesis” who is a self-made version of the hero, and a “curse” for the hero to surmount or succumb to. The hero can be a reluctant hero, with the gift or power thrust upon him or her unwillingly.SH examples: Superman; Gladiator; Raging Bull; Lawrence of Arabia; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Brazil; Iron Man; Joker
