A seems fine , the opening modifier is correctly modifying Frank and Jesse James,usage of who is fine

in B firstly being is used when something is happening now, but it is not
also we would normally want a comma before non essential modifier which
Being modern day heroes is compared with Robin Hood

in C the idiom resemblance to is correct , but the intended meaning is wrong
Frank and Jesse James did not resemble Robin Hood rather they were portrayed as

in D the comparison somewhat like Robin Hood is is incorrect
like + noun or noun + noun modifier

in E usage of since is incorrect along with usage of being
since x --we do y
there is no effect

So A
