Read the first paragraph for my Odyssey essay….?

So, our teacher told us to write a essay on why Odysseus is a hero in Homer's epic poem. All feedback is welcome and appreciated! :)This is a really really rough draft just to let ya know......Spider man returns an old women's purse, Superman whisks a new born baby away from a burning building seconds before it gives out and collapses. These are classic heroic scenarios which everyone has probably heard about at least ten times. Situations involving a hero rescuing his crew from their swine state or beating a flesh-eating cyclops at its own game are the tales that are not as well known. In Homer's epic poem The Odyssey, Odysseus is the perfect counter example hero of Spider man or Superman.

    I’m not sure you should use spider man or superman to compare with Odysseus, I think considering the context of the poem you’d be better off using another greek hero or compare him with an ancient greek villain.
