Hamartia – [hämärˈtēə] – noun:

the fault or error which entails the destruction of the tragic hero

Thoughts: The fatal flaw… I wonder, is it possible to have heroes without flaws? I think so. Inherently good people who want to do good because they are good. Or, is that like Superman, who people can’t quite seem to understand is a “good guy”. Superman doesn’t have a fatal flaw. And he shouldn’t.
