New Heroes Needed Now

The Sophos, or Wise Man, as the new type of hero was first called, was a person of intellect above his fellows, who applied his mind freely to the facts of the world around him, not without the guidance of others, but without subservience to tradition or authority, and anxious to use his knowledge for the common good.
