    Hello John, Atticus Finch is a heroic character in To Kill A Mockingbird. A hero is a person who is known for certain achievements and qualities. Atticus is known for many qualities he displayed during the novel, as well as various achievements. This makes him a heroic character. Atticus Finch is a hero because he defended a black man in court, proved his abilities and intelligences, and cared for everybody equally. During a time when black people were thought to be lower than white people, Atticus defended a black man in court. He said to his children, “I’m simply defending a *****—his name’s Tom Robinson,” (pg. 75). It required a lot of confidence and caring for Atticus to defend Tom, and the black community knew that Tom did not stand a chance without Atticus’ help. They respected him and looked to him as a hero. They showed this when they stood up for him in the courtroom. Reverend Sykes said to Scout in the courtroom, “Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father’s passin,” (pg. 211). Read the complete essay here:
