The Anti-hero

Posted by & filed under Humanities, Social Media, TED, Uncategorized.


This video explains what an anti-hero is and compares it to a hero.  The anti-hero is not the villain, but also is radically different from a hero and an idea we are more familiar with today.  It does a good job of separating the classical, mythical hero from the hero of today.  I will use this as part of an introduction to my Supervillains course offered in the Fall.

    Great video to use for an introduction! To be truthful, your course title ‘Supervillains’ makes me want to take your class in the Fall! The video gives great comparisons between anti-hero and heros with examples that students of all ages can relate to. Good find!
