A more modern hero story that I enjoy is The Amazing Spiderman. His call to adventure is when he discovers his father formula for genetic mutation. He is insecure about showing this Dr. Curt Connors, who is also trying to make genetic mutation a real thing. He then is bitten by a genetically mutated spider which give him something you could say would be "superpowers". His path then is hit with hardships and challenges. Like Dr. Connors becoming a giant green lizard who destroys the city. Peter Parker a.k.a. Spiderman is then force to stop him because it was his will that brought Dr. Connor the formula. He also gets the girl has always wanted, it just so happened to be the chief of police's daughter. He is after Spiderman because he thinks he is a vigilante. He goes through many obstacles like his Uncle Ben dying and his school being attack by the giant green lizard. The first two time Spiderman fights Dr.Connor he loses, but at the end the people of the city come together to help Spiderman because they figure out that he is there only hope. He ends up winning against Dr. Connors at the end and saves the city from genetic mutation. Peter Parker's departed, his initiation, and then returns as a hero in The Amazing Spiderman making him a hero because he followed a typical hero's journey.
