The female heroines tend to be made in the modern, kick-butt, girl power image. But the male heroes seem to be made in the dopey and useless Homer Simpson image. I'm trying--and failing--to think of one recent Disney Dude who was a strong male lead. The Prince from The Princess and the Frog was basically just comedy relief, and same thing is true of Flynn Rider from Tangled, and I don't think any of the males in Brave were important enough to even get names.
Does Wreck-It Ralph count? Hmmm...yeah, let's say he counts. Otherwise, I'd have to reach back to Tarzan or Hercules to find a kick-butt, guy power Disney Dude.
...Is "guy power" a thing? I know "girl power" is, but I've never heard of "guy power". I hope "guy power" refers to something good, and not something like "waste every Sunday watching football".
Anyway, I'm getting off-topic. Let me summarize.
- I liked Hercules.
- Winnie the Pooh is nice, but he is not a Macho Man
- Judging from his muscles, Wreck-It Ralph must work out a lot.
