what is it wiith the heroes i like
I swear I am striking out when it comes to heroes lately. I mean it all \started when I picked my favorite hero on naruto{the anime} which was sasuke yuchiha. and he was a good hero till he ended up being a vilians. and it seem lately my favorite characters in games/movies/anime's/shows have ether ended up being viiians or even worse villans I like because of there theme. is it just me or do we not want me picking the team that would be humanities last hope..{roflao} amplify that by the fact that I never pick bad guys that turn good and you start to get into why I am frustrated because I know what your thinking why is this a problem.....

It means there are very few heroes I like in fiction. mainly because there too boy scoutish. this leaves me with one option write one of my own....

reason as why I am doing this
1. because the last "good guy" I related to in a fiction is Crona from soul eater and he only counts technically. the first thing he does is slaughter a ton of innocent people.
2. because I think darkness isn't just evil but chaotic good as well...
3. because I think I want to route for the hero alone this time.

p.s. why is it the qualities I chose in a hero makes them really good vilians as well.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

It's all up to perception, isn't it? Villains rarely see themselves as such. They perceive themselves to be the hero. And you're right, Heroic qualities can really turn themsleves on its head.

RE: what is it wiith the heroes i like
Personally, I'm a fan of darker heroes: heroes who have no or few flaws, those goody-two-shoes types who always manage to win and insist on being disgustingly irrational just annoy me; they don't feel remotely human and are impossible to empathise with as a result.

I have a hard time expressing the sort of 'hero' I like; my favoured heroes are grey: they tend to be pragmatic, those who will do some measure evil for the greater good, they are willing to make the reasonable (if hard) decisions when push comes to shove instead of jumping through unreasonable hoops, they are the ones who actually kill the Big Bad, instead of handing them off to cops or what-have-you and allowing their inevitable escape.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

So, the Punisher then?

To me it's all about theme-ing. The good guys have bad themes and the bad guys have good themes. That's the major problem though philosophical I agree with you free thought. Thank you for saying thus.

RE: what is it wiith the heroes i like
in anime i like the anti-heroes more.
the vegetas and hieis of the world.
just look at devilman, he uses the power of evil for good.

RE: what is it wiith the heroes i like
It's the classic notion of the Byronic Hero or Anti-Hero that has been popular through eras in phases.

Many of the examples like Sasuske (though I stopped readng Naruto in 06 to really know where it went with him) fit this description. As do many of the others listed like the Punisher or Vegeta
