    Vote for your favorite non-comic book movie franchise character.

    I included characters from different movie genres that have appeared in 2 or more movies.

    If your favorite isn't here (the poll's limit is 40 options, the original list of options was 65), vote for none of the above.

    Bond at a ridiculously closed second, but I had to go with John McClane.

    Bond is played by too many actors and his franchise makes zero sense. And he's been rebooted, so there's that.

    I voted for the only choice that had any right of being on this list. -_- Mr. Die Hard. Indiana Jones is also a acceptable choice.

    I lol when Jason Voorhees gets treated like a ***** by the woman with mind powers in Part 7. Suck it, Voorhees.

    Indiana Jones followed by John McClane (pre-A Good Day to Die Hard).

    Oh yeah and terrific poll choices, btw. Usually these kinds of polls are crap and are almost always not broad enough. These choices are pretty damn good, anthonydelfini.

    So? All 6 actors are playing the same man.

    No more sense than any other fictional character on the list, especially the ones you mentioned.

    That's not really an argument.

    Yeah Michael was in the original list I made but decided on Vito since he's more iconic.

    The poll's limit is 40 options so I had to cut a lot of characters (James Kirk, Spock, Chief Martin Brody, Alan from Hangover, Chev Chelios, Benjamin Franklin Gates, etc.).

    John McClane, when they get him right, he's the best movie hero by far.

    Indiana Jones, followed by John McClane. I'm a sucker for "everyman" type action heroes, and they're the most charismatic of the bunch, imo.

    I was about to vote for Indiana Jones until I realized James Bond was also on the list. Indy is a close second though.

    There is only one Luke Skywalker and thus he is my answer. His arc is beautifully told. Whiny farmboy to the greatest of all the Jedi. It doesn't get better then that.

    Oh. I misread the title, I suppose. I read it as "Who is your favourite 'non-comic book movie franchise' character and why?" instead of "Who is your favourite 'non-comic book movie' franchise character and why?"

    I'm looking for a guy that has been through physical, emotional and psychological confrontations, is smart and clever, full of one-liners, has an iconic weapon and had to replace his had with a chainsaw.....
