2: Ordinary World | The hero, Hancock lives in a trailer in the outskirts of Los Angeles. He has a bad attitude and is constantly drunk. He has super powers which he does not use properly which makes the citizens of L.A. see him as a nuisance instead of a hero. In this way he is an anti-hero.
3: Call to Adventure | On one of Hancock's heroic shortcomings he saves a man named Ray from death. In exchange Ray offers to be his public relations. He invites him to dinner so Ray can suggest what Hancock should do. The challenge he gives Hancock is to turn himself in for all the damage he had caused.
4: Refusal of the Call | Although he does end up turning himself in, he doesn't so immediately. The obvious visual for him refusing is when Ray offers him the business card and he makes no effort to take the card.
5: Meeting with the Mentor | Hancock's mentor is Ray. He meets him when he flips his car out of the way from a train. Ray then becomes his public relations and guides him on how to get the city of L.A. to accept him as a hero. Ray helps Hancock take the first steps toward becoming a superhero.
6: Crossing the First Threshold | For Hancock, crossing the first threshold is when he finally agrees to go along with Ray's plan for Hancock which is to simply turn himself in to the police and wait for L.A. to need him. When Hancock lets himself be put in prison he begins his hero's journey.
7: Tests, Allies, and Enemies | Tests that Hancock face include actually staying in prison, dealing with Ray's wife who is "like Hancock", not destroying the city while he saves it, and of course criminals. | Hancock's allies are of course his mentor Ray, Ray's wife, and the city of Los Angeles. His enemies are mainly just the general population criminals that litter the city.
8: Approach to the Inmost Cave | When Hancock approaches the inmost cave is when a bank robbery with civilian hostages takes place in the city. This is Hancock's test to prove the city that he is no longer an anti-hero.
9: Near Death Experience | Hancock doesn't have a near death experience, but there is a point where the situation seems hopeless as the hostages are strapped explosives and are in imminent danger. Hancock quickly gets the situation under control and saves the day.
10: The reward for Hancock is earning the peoples respect. He earns it by helping others instead doing things for his own self gain. An example would be when he saves everyone from the back robbery. | 9. The Reward
11: 10. The Road Back | The road back for Hancock is when he is in the hospital and marry tells him about their past. He learns about the two movie tickets and why he lost his memory.
