Usually, I'm not a "Thursday" poster but this was one blog fest I just had to join. Hosted by Dani and Jackie, the goal is simple....just post your favorite Heroes and Villains and why you enjoy their heroic/villainous tendencies.
I'm going to have to rein myself in, here, because I could probably name dozens on each end of the spectrum. The ones that pop into mind, immediately are:
Abilities: Keen, deductive mind. Almost photographic memory for soil, tobacco, and the workings of the criminal mind.
Why they're heroic: Willing to risk his life to bring criminals to justice, out of sense of duty as well as a cerebral challenge.
Abilities: Enhanced physical attributes via Super Soldier process. Superb hand to hand combatant. Excellent military strategist.
Why they're heroic: Willing to risk his life in defense of his country or to save a life.
Abilities: Historical scholar, expert on archaeology and occult practices. Also snaps a mean bullwhip.
Why they're heroic: Would risk life and limb in the pursuit of knowledge and to preserve rare antiquities.
Abilities: Possessor of the Matrix of Leadership that helps guide his decisions to lead. Can shape shift into an eighteen wheel truck as well as wield 'futuristic' energy weapons.
Why they're heroic: Would sacrifice himself for an innocent life...human or Autobot. Also willing to make tough decisions for a just cause.
