We love these stories because they are about people who find something within themselves that even they didn’t know was there.  That discovery gives them the power to defeat the most overwhelming enemies and situations — and because it comes from inside, this power can never be taken away.  We all need, in big ways and small, to believe that if we dig deep enough we can find the confidence, the abilities, the self-possession to defeat whatever dark powers life arrays against us.  We root for the hero because we root for ourselves.
