The graph in the previous recipe is much too large for us to get a feel for what is happening at the individual level, although we'll soon look at analyses that tell us interesting things about populations and communities. However, in order for us to see something interesting immediately, let's extract a subgraph to play with. In particular, we'll collect a subgraph for a particular hero in our dataset. When a subgraph is generated with a single person or actor as a focal point, it is called an ego network, and, in fact, the degree of an ego network might be a measure of an individual's self-worth!
As long as you completed the previous recipe, you will be prepared for this one.
