Well, do all superheroes where capes (and other such garb)?

I have a T-shirt from with a related slogan:  "Not all heroes wear capes". This was a gift for giving blood.  The prior time I got a blanket and now the T-shirt. 

But giving blood is sometimes what heroes do; that is, they (him or her) make great sacrifices and sometime suffer much for the sake of others.  They may not actually shed blood but the do sacrifice and perhaps would give their lives if the need arose.Heroes are not out for themselves.   

Who is our hero(s)?  What do you consider heroism, heroic?  

It is said or believed that the hero (traits) are fundamentally truthfulness and unselfishness. However super the hero, they must carry these two qualities, behaviors and lifestyle.  Yes, super-heroes dazzle us with their theater but it more than person behind the mask, armor and all than the appearance, perception.  

In his book Dark Moon, author David Gemmell writes: 
Heroes are people who face down their fears. It is that simple. A child afraid of the dark who one day blows out the candle; a women terrified of the pain of childbirth who says, "It is time..."
He continues, 
There's no shame in fear. But understand this--the coward is ruled by fear, while the hero rides it like a wild stallion.  
I guess then that a hero must master his fears.
