The fundamental issue is whether or not the Fe myth is that of the Hero. Part of the problem here could be that the language is too broad – doesn’t everyone want to be a hero? I certainly do.

 

I might offer that perhaps a better word would be messiah, or something more specific, a particular type of hero. @Auburn might have something more specific in mind when he talks of the myth of the Hero.

 

Another source of confusion seems to be a distinction between the myth of the Hero as experienced psychologically vs. whether someone is a hero, if that makes sense. Harry Potter could well be described as a hero, and his story has all the right beats – but he might not think of himself as such, and therein lies the difference.
