    I loved the Mask comics but the movie was just a bit 'meh', but Carrey was awesome in it!

    Has anybody read the newly released graphic novel called Black Charity. Apparently Mark E Smith, Nick Cave and John Peel are all major characters in the narrative. How anti hero does that sound.

    'The Witcher' is one of my favourite anti-hero characters. A man who was mutated as a boy with the sole purpose of fighting monsters to protect humans, who mostly treat him with derision.

    I'd love to see 'The Witcher' made into a tv series or movie series. It has the potential to push the barrier for inteliigent fantasy, but you'd need a top director to translate the intricacies and intelligence of 'The Witcher' universe and not dumb it down.

    Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive

    He completely stole the show away from Ford and so we then got US Marshals

    The best SUPER anti-hero is Scott Pilgrim from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World or just seven evil people.

    He’s not your typical hero; he isn’t a billionaire playboy, genius, philanthropist, or detective but a narcissist, charming and jobless commoner with dreams of making it big (sound a little familiar), who then meets the girl of his dreams but then sets out on a colorful quest to defeat her seven evil exes.

    Pilgrim vs. the World is fast, funny, creative and inventive with dazzling eye-popping visuals and Mary Elizabeth Winstead with pink, blue and green hair.

    For me it has to be Mario Brava's adaption of Danger Diabolik , a glorious mix of 60's comic book adventure and european cool.

    I can't get over the fact that Iron Man is the most successful comic hero. He has had one good solo film, two awful sequels and a cracking "Tony Stark and Friends Marvel Power Hour" team up movie. The fawning over Iron Man 3 staggers me. I just hope that this isn't the start of Marvel pumping out any old tripe, in the belief that the public will flock to it regardless and fail to see past any flaws "cos it's a Marvel flick and you can't criticise them and if you do you're just being deliberately contrary". But as for anti-heroes, I would definitely vote for The Punisher. The concept is solid and given the right director, scriptwriter and star, then there is no reason why it can't be done justice. Gareth Evans is indeed a great shout. I would even hire Garth Ennis to write it. As for the titular vigilante himself, I would happily watch either Tom Jane or Ray Stevenson again.

    For me it has to be Jack Burton from 'Big Trouble In Little China'. Kurt Russell plays the ultimate anti-superhero, he thinks that he is one and spends the entire film as a bumbling, lovable idiot, dropping all the hero one liners and striking the poses without ever really doing anything heroically and everything he tries to do either goes hilariously badly or he gets the upper head by nothing but pure chance. A hero we can all look up to!

    The Hulk is very much the anti-hero - and a great one too!

    Banner (particularly in the Avengers movie) is the one "super-hero" that doesn't seem to want to be there. He's the guy that is ashamed of his powers in a sense despite Tony Stark trying to convince him otherwise!

    I have to say that I still think that they haven't quite managed a satisfying big screen Hulk adaptation yet - Ruffalo is great as Banner but the Hulk himself seems to lack the depth he has in the comics.
