At the very core of ancient Greek mythology dwelled the epic hero—most often a man but on occasion a woman—who was a larger-than-life figure blessed with extraordinary abilities, including superhuman strength, courage, and/or cunning. Such talents allowed a hero to do things that ordinary humans could not. These deeds included overthrowing tyrants, killing monsters, and fighting injustice.
