Default Best Anti-Hero/Rogue character.

A self-motivated trickster with a heart of gold. That's why we love the rogues..the anti-heroes who end up doing the right thing by the end of a film. Who's your favorite?

Let me start with everyone's favorite usual suspect:

Han Solo



Lisbeth (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo)

Yes, he was a monster, but after repeat viewings of Watchmen, I grew to like the character.

Not sure if he qualifies as a full on "rogue" or not, but he does have some rogue-like qualities to him. He's certainly not a typical hero. He's very selfish and only concerned with his own well being throughout most of the movie, but of course he has a change of heart and saves the day in the end.
