In my mind, heroes don't get better than Lucky Spencer v. 1.0.

He's the one who found Elizabeth in the park, the one who slept by her bed so she would feel safe.

But more importantly, what I think distinguished him from the bland, typical soap heroes that popped up all over the place in the 80's and 90's, was the way he struggled to do the right thing. While the average soap hero was just a strong guy who swooped in and saved the day, Lucky's heroism was based more on how his morality. From childhood, he always seemed to consider the big questions in life, and really struggle to do the right thing. He had a very defined view of right and wrong, and his views on that were incredibly important to him.

Sadly, subsequent Luckys have failed to measure up, but Lucky1 will always be my hero.

For more conventional heroes, I would probably say Laura Spencer, Robert Scorpio, Bo, and Hope.

hmmm...I'll go along with Bo Brady for sure...

not so sure on heroine. I've always liked characters with edges, so heroines never really did it for me cos they were just too pure. haha. I suppose you could say Hope Brady would fit well in that too.
