    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.;)

    Obviously none are actually heroes on account of their gender.

    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!
