I'll chime in slightly sideways.
Me growing up in USSR kinda turned me off heroes as a concept, even before an idea of philosophy being something else than a fanciful name even started to begin to cross my mind. Because in that late stage of USSR the indoctrination was still there (I caught the tail end of all the Oktyabryata and Pioneers youth "movements") and literature for children was still full of various role models harking back to the Great October Socialist Revolution, civil war and the Great Patriotic War; but it was already kinda obvious that many of those were morally controversial (and at times clearly horrific). Not to mention the other "role models" like e.g. Mr. Brezhnev who in his late slightly senile years was putting the "Hero of the Soviet Union" highest state awards on his jacket like trinkets.
Later, it occurred to me that one person's hero is another person's villain, and significantly later it occurred to me that it's much healthier to just not judge [on that axis; or at all]. Ever a sucker for symbolism, I'll give two illustrations. One is a beautiful movie, both cinematographically and because it is literally eponymous with our topic. If you haven't watched it - I can't recommend enough. And another is a little rhyme which I'll try to quote from memory:
Here lies a toppled god,
His fall was not a small one.
We did but build his pedestal,
A narrow and a tall one.
-- from one of the Dune books, attributed to the Tleilaxu
I do have people I admire and respect, though I don't keep a list. Elon Musk would make it off the top of my head and since he has been already mentioned. Richard Feynman would make it. William Gibson would make it. For sure many more people whose name I just do not remember right now, because I just don't have a sorted list like that readily made or even regularly considered. I'm busy enough being me to seriously invest in grooming such a list on a regular basis :)
