I belev the achilles is the better hero b/cuz he is the better fighter and the gods love hem more.
I personally think that Hector is a better hero because he had to build up his confidence and be strong. Achilles already had confidence because he was pretty much invinicible except for the heel.
I think Hector beacause he show his pride for his city. He stands up for what he thinks is right.
I would have to say that Achilles is the better warrior in this story
One definition of a hero is someone with great courage or strength of character. With this said, I think that Hector is the better hero. Hector was man enough to return Petroclus' body after killing him. That's more than can be said for Achilles who was a great fighter but too immature to be respectful of his rival's dead body.
