Luck and Pluck

Horatio Alger, Jr. originally intended to become a poet. Born in January of 1832, the Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Harvard University, who studied under Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, is best known for penning over 100 rags-to-riches stories. In fact, any tale of triumph over adversity is still referred to as a "Horatio Alger story."

A nicer description of fictional comic book heroes doesn't exist!
