What makes someone a hero? What keeps them from becoming a villain?
These were the two questions on my mind while writing “Hero,” a short sci-fi story about a brutal, futuristic battle in which soldiers come in a variety of shapes and sizes: hardened veteran fighters, elite super-heroic units, and expendable child-soldiers grown in a lab. The question I have for you while reading this is two-fold: Who do you see being the true hero of this story, and who is the real villain? – DT
