In the Odyssey, after Odysseus blinds the cyclops, the monster states:

"I have been all along expecting some one of imposing presence and superhuman strength, whereas he turns out to be a little insignificant weakling..."

This statement could apply to the standard Anglo-Saxon hero in that:


The Anglo-Saxon hero always starts as a weak youngster and grows into a hero.


The Anglo-Saxon hero always masquerades as a weakling so as to surprise his enemy.


The Anglo-Saxon hero is always a presence in any room.


The Anglo-Saxon hero is very strong, but not a superhuman.


The Anglo-Saxon hero does not let his physical imperfections get in his way.
