|English term or phrase: cult hero|
|Not just an ordinary hero, but a 'cult hero' meaning one who has achieved his heroic status for perhaps unconventional reasons - perhaps because he is an unusual personality, or an unlikely hero. For example, in football, one might say that while, Maradona and Pele were heroes, plain and simple, Roger Milla, the 42 year old Cameroonian who scored several goals in the 1986 World Cup was most certainly a cult hero. I am looking for something beyond simply eroe or idolo if possible...|
Like the 883 song "Sei un mito".
My son says someone is "mitico" when they are over and above hero status (not that I'd call Maradona a hero but I might call Pelé a "mito").
Looking good, Dan.
