The Heroes Wiki is an off-shot of the "Villains Wiki" and is designed to be a comprehensive database of heroes from all media - ranging from cartoon shows of old to epic dramas, movies and video-games. Heroes are an ancient traditional spanning across almost all cultures and capturing the imaginations of young and old - this wiki seeks to pay homage to those childhood fantasies as well as characters who continue to inspire us well into our adult life.

Atticus Finch

Atticus Finch is the main protagonist of the best-selling 1960 book and the treasured 1962 classic movie To Kill a Mockingbird, and a major character its 2015 sequel novel Go Set a Watchmen. He is a widowed lawyer who lives in the "Tired Old Town" of Maycomb, Alabama whose job is to defend a african-american man named Tom Robinson after he was accused of rape.

In both the book and the movie, Atticus Finch is a widowed Depression Era lawyer who lives in the "Tired Old Town" of Maycomb, Alabama. Wise and caring, he fathers two children, Jeremy "Jem" Finch and Jean Louise "Scout" Finch.

Atticus himself holds a deep anti-racism philosophy, and after the town's judge appoints him to defend a black man named Tom Robinson, who is falsely accused of raping a teenaged girl named Mayella Ewell, Atticus agrees to take up the position of his defense lawyer, much to the town's anger and disapproval.

During the trial, Atticus goes to many lengths to prove that Tom is not guilty. He and Tom manage to take the upper hand at first by disproving many of Mayella and her father Bob's accusations, suggesting that both Mayella and Bob were lying for their personal gain and that the real culprit was Bob after it's later revealed that he had beat Mayella after she was allegedly caught flirting with Tom.

Despite numerous evidence presented against the Ewells, Atticus and Tom ultimately lose the trial, as the all bigoted jury convicts him. Atticus is initially disappointed in the loss, but he is later shocked to learn that Tom was later killed when trying to escape from prison, causing him to believe that there is no faith in justice in his town.

It is however later revealed that Atticus' beliefs that Tom was innocent and Bob was the real culprit of raping Mayella are true after Scout and Jem are attacked by Bob as they are returning home from a halloween pageant; as a result, Bob is ultimately killed by Boo Radley in self-defense.

In 2003, Atticus was voted the Greatest Movie Hero by the American Film Institute, beating out both Indiana Jones and James Bond respectfully.

Before contributing, please read our rules and abide by them.

NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "hero" can be another man's "villain" (no matter how noble they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.

NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight. You can create this kind of stuff on the Heroes Fanon Wiki.

Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
