Why is Jason (Greek mythology her) not considered to be as great a hero as Odysseus?

QUESTION
Why is Jason (Greek mythology her) not considered to be as great a hero as Odysseus?
I have to write an essay comparing Odysseus and Jason, but i want to know why jason is not considered to be as good of a hero as odysseus is.

ANSWER
jason really only succeeded because of random help if it wasn’t for medea he wouldn’t have made it any where near the fleece, if it wasn’t aphrodite medea wouldn’t have helped him, if it wasn’t for hera aphrodite wouldn’t have made medea help jason. also jason abandoned medea after she helped him! he left her on an island after tricking her to get her off the boat

i’ve seen multiple books w/ his myth and in all of them he only gets by on immortals help, and on pure dumb luck

Odysseus’s however had True wisdom, he was one of the youngest soldiers in the war on troy (at least in some myths)
he is Truly crafty and sly, that’s how he won the adoration of bright eyed Athena.
