Data from Star Trek Next Generation
Frivolously - Judge Judy
More seriously - Ernest Shakleton (not necessarily a wonderful person, but a fantastic leader)
Not so frivolously, I simply can't work out how she manages without an Uzi 9mm.
Mr Spock of course
Ian Botham 149 not out against Australia Headingly 1981. True heroism.
Obviously none are actually heroes on account of their gender.
Nadezhda Mandelstam (1899-1980)
I have other heroes. I have even met some of them. But no one comes near her; for her courage, her endurance, her anger and her love. The greatest woman of the 20th century.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (steel true blade straight)
And - obviously - Sherlock Holmes’
( who are you and what do you know of this matter?
My name is Sherlock Holmes, and I know everything..)
Two very contrasting military heroes:
Major Richard Winters - the unit commander featured in Band of Brothers
Pfc Desmond Doss - the conscientious objector medic featured in Hacksaw Ridge.
I don't think I've seen Band of Brothers but hubby has - we may even have a box set. I'll look it out!
In film / drama Kenneth Branagh as Henry V - I'd follow that man anywhere.
In real life Tina Turner - what a performer and what a survivor!
Jack Reacher comes close because he doesn't own anything and does lots of stuff with his time to make the world a better place, although he'd attain full hero status if after his twenty plus adventures he finally came to realise that folding up your trousers for the day and passively pressing them under your mattress for the night does not constitute actual hygiene.
I've not seen any films but I have read some of the books and wondered how he manages it all!

Sergeant Michael Willetts.
Atticus Finch. What a man
Gabriel Oak from Far From The Madding Crowd.
