As most of my Vingle Marvel family knows about me, is that I love Anti Heroes and Villians. Not to say that I do not find good guys great a like Captain America (who I like) or Storm.
Personally, I find the stories of Anti Heroes and Villians more fascinating. To see them turn from good to bad or just rotten from the start. I am going to put a few Anti Heroes and Villians that I particularly find interesting.
Just to make it clear for some people who might not be familiar with the term "Anti Hero"
✨ Anti Hero is an ✨
central character in a story, comic or movie who does not show signs of being a hero, however they still have a moral compass that usually wiggles them right into the grey. I like to call them neutral. They don't pick sides usually. They just do what ever they do.
Oh, and you guys do know Deadpool is going to be up there, lol I will start with him first.
DEADPOOL : aka Wade Wilson
Deadpool is a mercenary that carry out contracts that have a big reward at the end. No one is usually speared for any reason. But, usually faces a lot of problems with his moral compass. Usually when he is on is way to carry out his mission to collect his bounty. He is faced with a choice, which causes internal conflict. His friend Spider-Man happens to be a hero and there has been plenty of times that Spider-Man has been able to bring over Wade to the "good" side and stop killing.
ABILITIES : Regenerativehealing factorMastermartial artist,swordsman, andmarksmanExtendedlongevityCarries devices that grant him teleportation and holographic disguise and a magic satchel.
MOON KNIGHT : Moon Knight is a mercenary left for dead in the Egyptian desert. His character in itself is interesting. He started out as an mercenary and was saved by the the Egyptian God Khonshu and that is also when he gained his powers. He was hell bent on revenge about being left for dead and return to the US fighting and killing. Moon Knight's compass went left and right constantly but he eventually ended up using his powers to help people and using his skills for good...
ABILITIES : Superb athlete, Master Martial artist, Skilled acrobat and marksman
Resistance to some psychic assaults
Possesses both traditional and sophisticated weaponry.
Superhuman strength, senses, and agility
BLACKCAT : AKA: Felicia Hardy. Felicia Hardy wasrapedby her boyfriend Ryan. Hating the idea of being a victim, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics, intent on killing her rapist. Finally, after months of preparing, she set out for revenge, but before she could find him, Ryan was killed in adrunk driving accident. She was very upset over the fact that she was denied the chance for revenge.
Felicia decided to utilize her new skills to follow in her father's footsteps. After accumulating a fortune in stolen items, Felicia adopted her costumed identity. The Black Cat was born and she became one of Spider-Man's "Villians" . I put the world villians in quotation because Black Cat did fall for Spider-Man man and more than a few times her morality was tested in different situations. Very similar to how Deadpool's moral compass goes crazy when dealing with Spider-Man.
ABILITIES: Expert burglar, Excellent street fighter, Highly skilled martial artist,
Agility, Retractable claws and grappling hooks through her gloves, Ability to see in various ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum through contact lenses,
Superhuman strength, speed, agility and endurance and night vision.
THE PUNISHER : aka Frank Castle. After his family was killed by the mob, Marine Special Forces veteran Frank Castle became an army of one in his war against organized crime. With a distinct death's-head symbol emblazoned on his chest, he is now the vigilante known as The Punisher. I would also like to add his moral compass was also tested by Spider-Man! Lol
ABILITIES : Expert in military and guerrilla tactics, marksmanship,close quarters combat, infiltration, and demolitions and Special Forcestraining.
