reasons why Brutus is a hero. Only a hero puts his country before himself and his friends. Only a hero admits to killing a man with giving just cause, right after he commits the murder. Only a hero can lead so many men into a losing battle with just cause. Quite simply, Brutus is a hero because his enemy Mark Antony said so; " He is the noblest man to live this tide of times. (3,1, 256-7)"
