Pop culture stories do manage to all look alike after a while. When a story works, it will work again. While not checking all the boxes, I can think of other heroes that fit this trope. Dorothy Gale for one. Frodo. King Arthur. Of course, there are reasons for all this. It’s everyone’s fantasy to be the hero of their own story. The lack of parents frees one to act instead being protected. Magic and special abilities make it possible. Fighting for justice against oppressive evil overlords is the epitome of heroism. The stick and the hairy friend… those are just a lot of fun. This comic is from John Atkinson at Wrong Hands. -via Geeks Are Sexy
