The Medical Hero is unlike the traditional Superhero, Romantic Hero, or Medieval Hero. The Medical Hero does not necessarily

focus on physical strength and saving people from a evil villain like many other hero archetypes focus on. The Medical Hero is truly a "Modern Day Hero" because of the reliability of physicians, and the practical teachings they provide us through their modern medicine. Doctors are hero’s that have an impact on nearly all of our lives, whether is clearing us for a physical, or saving a human life after an accident. Doctors are people that we all interact with during our lives at one time or another. Being a Doctor is also an occupation that is attainable for us, unlike a traditional superhero like Spiderman.
