In “The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones” by Jon Ronson, we get an inside look at a subculture of people who dress in costume to fight crime. Though Ronson does talk about different people/groups of costumed crime fighters, the piece is largely focused on painting a portrait of Phoenix Jones.
Using either “Creating the Myth” or “The Thematic Paradigm” as a lens, write an analytical essay in which you argue whether Phoenix Jones fits the definition of a “hero” outlined in either text.
This essay does NOT ask whether you personally believe that Phoenix Jones is a hero, but whether the portrait that Ronson paints of Jones fits within either article’s definition of a “hero”.
___ Please let me know if you need any information for the readings, my professor is very strict on staying on topic with the prompt so please do that. Must be in analysis form in MLA format.
