] I've made a list of some oomphy heroes by male authors, just to prove my point. However, I'll grant you that there are more such heroes by women authors. Here's the list:
] Philip? (Felipe) Derblay (Le Maitre de Forges - Georges Ohnet)
] Prince Andrei (War and Peace)
] Muley-el-Kadel (Capitan Tempesta -Captain Storm?- Emilio Salgari)
] Aragorn (Lord of the Rings)
] Ivanhoe (Scott)
] Armand D'Hubert (The Duel - Conrad)
] Gabriel (Far from the madding crow - Hardy)
] Fabrizio Falconeri (The Leopard - Tomasi de Lampedusa)
] Colonel Sartoris (The invicts? - Faulkner)
] Johnny Pascoe (The Rainbow and the Rose - Nevil Shute)
] The main male character in "The 4 feathers"
Yes, of course (why didn't I think of them?) Given that there are more male than female authors, there are presumably more created by men than by women. Add to the list:
Sidney Carton in Dickens's Tale of Two Cities.
Cyrano de Bergerac
William Wallace according to Mel Gibson in Brave Heart
Odysseus (but not Achilles or Hector) from Homer
