Transcript of Macbeth; hero or villain?

Macbeth; hero or villain?
In the Beginning
In the very beginning of the story, Macbeth has just cut an enemy in battle from his belly to his throat.
He then kills the Thane of Cawdor to receive his title.
Macbeth carried the daggers with him after murdering the king, and is scared to reenter the castle to clean up the mess/replant the daggers.
Then he takes credit for being a hero for finding the guards to be guilty.
Lady Macbeth with Macbeth after murdering the king.
Macbeth; Villain
Macbeth was a villain for many different reasons.

Because witches tell Macbeth that there are prophecies, he decides he wants to play a part in making them come true. So, he and Lady Macbeth get the guards drunk and kill the king with daggers.
Macbeth is then named King and gets power hungry.

Other Murderous Activity
Macbeth murders a sleeping man, his benefactor, and a guest that is with them, in cold blood.
Then kills the guards to cover up his tracks!
He hires murderers to do his bidding for him after he becomes content with the work that he's done and so he can have a clean conscience.
Like murdering his best friend Banquo and his son, Fleance.
Sends murderers to Macduff's castle to off him and his family.
Macduff's son is stabbed to death in front of his mother's eyes.
