《千面英雄》(the Hero with the Thousand Faces)等文学资料指出，英雄故事的剧本是如何形成的。这本书突出了用来描述英雄传统属性的模式，也帮助了许多电影制作人，如乔治卢卡斯和弗朗西斯科波拉创造了视觉杰作(Pahlke, Hyde & Allison, 2014)。下面上下文分析中提供的例子来自于书中的概念。实际上，英雄的概念或描述英雄所遵循的模式被表示为“英雄神话”。英雄神话为建立一个故事提供了基础。有关英雄主义的定义和英雄所期望的品质的问题在英雄神话中进行了调整，以便创造一个单独的故事。此外，像《神奇女侠前传》这样的书也强调了女性在英雄主义中的作用。英雄主义是一种心理或行为属性，因此，没有具体的议程或社会分类表明只有特定的性别、种族或阶级才能表现出英雄主义。因此，英雄主义被视为一门研究领域更广的学科。

Literary sources like the book ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ point out to the formation of script for a hero’s story. The book highlighted the pattern used to describe the traditional attributes of a hero and has also helped many filmmakers such as George Lucas and Francis Coppola to create visual masterpieces (Pahlke, Hyde & Allison, 2014). The examples provided in the contextual analysis below are derived from the concepts in the book. Actually the concept of hero or the pattern followed in describing the hero is represented as ‘The Hero Myth’. The hero myth offers a foundation to build up a story. The questions related to definition of heroism and qualities desired from a hero are adjusted within the hero myth in order to create an individual story. Furthermore books like ‘The Wonder Woman Precedent’ have also emphasized on the role of women in heroism. Heroism is a psychological or behavioural attribute and hence there is no specific agenda or classification of society which states that only a particular gender, race or class can exhibit heroism. Hence heroism is treated as a discipline with a wider domain for research.
Sophie is a girl living in California with her parents. The strides of life haven’t affected her as every other teenager.

Though Sophie doesn’t enjoy the powers of comic book superhero, she has the capability to express compassion for others and is always ready to take the first initiative. One such incident which made her a hero is mentioned below.
