Odysseus wants to meet his adversaries head to head and he wants to take on any challenge.  He wants to show his bravery and he wants to show that he is stronger than any strange being that he might meet.  To really be certain of this answer, you need to know what characteristics of the epic hero are being used by your teacher, but typically they include bravery, strength, ability to take on a challenge, and great courage.
