12 Movie and TV “Good Guys” Who Might Just Be Assholes
Trust us, we’re not out to ruin anyone’s day here, but if you get easily attached to fictional heroes, this list will not end well for you. We’re just as heartbroken as the next fan, because like many, a once over of these movies and TV shows was not enough to detect the douchey, downright villainous nature of our favorite “heroes.” These were real record-scratch moments. Real, “Wait, what?!” type realizations that made us rethink our fandom, and may have tarnished some legacies.
Fictional legacies, yes, but when a character has become part of the collective consciousness, we tend to think of them as “real” every now and again. Unless you guys think that’s weird. If so, we take it back! We take it all back! Keep thinking of them in a good light if you want, but there’s no denying that they made some questionable decisions. It’s like saying, “I didn’t call you an asshole. I said you were acting like an asshole.” There’s a difference! However you happen to perceive these fictional heroes, 12 of them were conceived and written as the good guys, but a deeper look proved otherwise.
