  • When we think about heroes, our understanding is primarily carved from American comics.

  • These heroes usually have some kind of super powers that make them special and strong.

  • But from the European perspective, the status of a hero is very different.

  • What makes Tintin a European hero is his personality.

  • He doesn't have any supernatural abilities, but rather very natural ones.

  • He is always optimistic, righteous, helpful, fights for the right thing, and seeks for the truth.

  • And he does all of this without asking for something in return.

  • For Tintin, righteousness and money are on different sides,

  • because even though he has often been offered a lot of money or gold throughout his adventures

  • he always refuses to take it and leaves it to their rightful owners.

  • As a reporter, his adventures are full of sensational stories to tell,

  • yet he never hurries and instead lets other reporters tell these stories first.

  • There has never been any kind of competition for him due to his lack of interest in fame or money,

  • even though he is a relatively well-known character within the comic series.

  • In addition, when it comes to saving friends out of trouble, there is no limit for him.

  • Even if he has to climb the Himalayas or help rebels in a revolution,

  • he even manages to convince them of a bloodless revolution without executions.

  • Tintin maintains good faith in people, sometimes even in his enemies.

  • This all gives Tintin a personality which adequately portrays the characteristics of a European hero.

  • Don't ever mess with Action-Man!
