This range represents more than just popular "anti heroes". These characters are all great leaders willing to bend the rules in order to keep their people on a path of survival. We celebrate them; not only because they are badass; but rather because they are unbreakable and relentless in their beliefs. They slaughter tribes, individuals and anything that stands in the way of their goals. If we were to take a step back and look at any one of these champions from an "outsider" or opposing factions view, we might look at them as the most heinous individuals to walk their particular earth. However, we are so engrossed in their world, in their families and friends that they have become our chosen heroes ... our "Villainous Heroes" and we support them.
