(*****Spoilers Within******) Would you say that Gollum was the hero of the story? Gollum destroyed The One Ring. Gollum saved Middle Earth from an ultimate doom. Gollum saved millions of lives. Gollum accomplished what Frodo could not do. It was by accident. Gollum did not mean to destroy the ring. But where does is it said that it needs to be out of goodwill for a hero to defined a "Hero". Unintentionally, he did what seemed the impossible. Others helped along the way, and through secondary actions, they also are heros, yet none of them actually destroyed the ring. Only Gollum did that. Thoughts on this worthy debate?
