Are these the Heroes you're looking for? And have you found them recently?

Are these the Heroes you're looking for?
            And have you found them recently?

I've been doing a lot of old style pulp writing recently, and had a sudden thought about characters. So I wrote down several brief character descriptions

Tell me if you recognize them, and if you thought I got them correct?

           He was raised by loving parents who taught him right from wrong; to respect others, and to help his neighbors, who ever they might be, however he could. He has moved to the big city to do just that.

           Raised by a single father, he never knew his mother. Reaching adulthood, he discovers his is heir to a distant and mysterious kingdom. He will become king if he can bring the kingdom together, even though they see him as an outsider; even as an enemy.

           Recruited for a special police force, his personality is both greatest strength and greatest weakness.

           She was raised and loved by her entire family, but when they are threated she must turn away from them in order to save them.

           A police scientist discovers something in his lab that allows him to fight crime in ways no other cop can.

           Traumatized in childhood he struggles to prevent it from happening to others.

           Two police officers are sent undercover to a distant city. They must use their training to fight a new kind of criminal, while struggling with their personal relationship.

           Kidnapped to a new land; he must act like one them to survive while saving them from themselves.
