Who was your childhood hero?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I thought this would be a fun way to get to know some of us better. Tell us your childhood hero, why they were your hero and post a pic of them. I will start.


My childhood hero was Princess Leia. She was strong, independent, really beautiful, and had the best hairstyles of anyone ever! I wore my hair in different styles from the movies for quite some time. My last 2 years of high school my hair was down to my waist, but I never wore it down. I could do any style she ever wore, and did my hair like that every day.

I had a couple of childhood heros.. and to make this really ironic... one of them was Darth Vader. He was quiet unless provoked.. didn't take anything off of anyone, and in the end turned out to be a good guy. I guess I've always liked the anti-hero because I could identify with the inherent lonliness of the character. I had good parents, but never very many close friends. In fact.. most of my friends were animals. Maybe that's why I have such strong feelings towards my own kitty.. I consider him closer to me than most people. You could honestly say the easy way to get on my good side is to get on Sephie's good side.

Good one! Suprising but good! After watching the new movie, I had to go back and watch the old ones, gave me a completly different perspective on him.

This could become a really interesting thread. I believe childhood heroes can be a very large influence on our personalities later in life.

Mr. Spock. I was very attracted to the "logic" his character displayed, the way things are thought through (I still do this today, it helps me a LOT,) in a logical manner. Learning to control emotions, and not have your emotions control you was a bit hard for a 10-11 year old girl , but I managed. I was always interested in science and this was just an offshoot of that. I actually got my hair cut in a "Pixie" which was about as close as I could get to a Mr. Spock cut. The outsider trying to fit in of course always comes home to a geeky, Science-fiction reading, loner type person.

And I just always thought pointed ears were cool .

That's cool..... i can't remember who my childhood hero was, if I'm honest. I wasn't an overly impressionable kid. The only idol I had in my life was Garfield. Character-wise, we're very alike... right down to hating spider, mondays and alarm clocks... and loving lasagne. He is cynical yet witty, charming yet disgusting and hey, he hates dogs. Doens't get much better than that! I had a teddybear names Pooky - and I was delighted when I found out that Garfield's was too.... I had all the comic strips drawn since 69 and most of them were papering my bedroom walls! I don't think I need to post a picture though... everyone knows what Garfield looks like

Robin Hood- It was my most watched Disney flick EVAR aside from Mary poppins And I still watch it if I'm feeling down. I used to pretend I was Robin hood though (I suppose that's why I like Modern Fairytale Retellings.)

my childhood hero would be my father. sorry dont have a picture of him..

but he truly was my hero. i had a rough childhood with my mother and he was always there for me. he and i have a strange relationship but we both know the love is there for each other.

he has always tought me strength and knowledge. there is so much i learned from him i cant begin to thank him enough. to this day ive never seen him quit at anything or stop when something got in his way. either be it pain or anyh other circumstance. i learned this from him and think this is the best quality i have. i will never quit at anything. quit just isnt in my vocabulary.

My Grampap-I hung out with him ALOT when I was little, watching the Pirates & the Steelers games, & those corny old crime shows like Streets of San Francisco. He taught me how to play a mean game of 500 rummy-we would sit for hours in his in his dining room, play cards & listen to baseball games on his radio..(to this day, the sound of a baseball game soothes me) He was a quiet hard working man, I never heard him swear or raise his voice to anyone, or about anything.

But as far as celebrities go..Terry Bradshaw!!

I don't know if I had a hero or not, but I loved Top Cat (the cartoon) and would play for hours pretending I was him.......or sometimes I was Heidi and had wonderful goats and ate bread and cheese as I skipped through the
mountains..........

Sorry, no action figures...

I have always held him in very high regards, the man can do anything... and to this day he is still my hero!
