  1. Someone who distinguishes himself from the crowd obviously, but its someone working for the greater good but not in secret and on a larger scale.

  2. There are a few things that must be met before I can call somebody a superhero:
    1) They have to save people, even if it's just the ones who matter.
    2) They must have an identity, be it through wearing an outfit or mutating, the common citizen must not be able to recognise that person while they're in outfit.
    3) They must have something that the common enemy does not, be it gadgets, superpowers, or years of advanced martial arts training. Anything that would count in this case would be something the common criminal couldn't obtain.
