Heroes Face Hard Decisions

Are heroes chosen?
Or, do the choices made by ordinary people define a hero?

There is a recurring argument in storytelling.

One side claims that something or someone decides who becomes a hero.

The other side claims that a hero is an ordinary person who takes action, and chooses to be heroic.

Two writers are using a comic book character, and his universe, to further the argument that heroes are not chosen.
