Since yesterday's puzzle still hasn't been solved, I made a very simple one for today.

Here I stand, in the face of danger,
Ever battling evil, to you I'm a stranger.

Run away villains, I am here to fight.
Overcoming all, I am the embodiment of right.

What am I?

Is it a

Superhero

Here I stand, in the face of danger, Ever battling evil, to you I'm a stranger.

Superheroes save and battle for people.

Run away villains, I am here to fight. Overcoming all, I am the embodiment of right.

Superheroes like superman fight villians and try to do right.

Also,

The first letter of each line spell hero.

And regarding the title

Children might want to be like batman when they grow up.

A HERO

Mostly self evident, first letter of each line

Here I stand, in the face of danger,
Ever battling evil, to you I'm a stranger.

Heroes identities are masked

Run away villains, I am here to fight.
Overcoming all, I am the embodiment of right.

    $\begingroup$ @Joe-You-Know - thanks for that hint, given that QuantumTwinkie answered before me, and we're both so close, I'll allow him to refine his answer based on your input. $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 8 '18 at 14:41
