The 12 best heros from the movies!

Updated on December 30, 2014

Reach out side of yourself!


The saga begins! Bring it home for a great price!

There are so many to chose from!

I love movies as much as anyone, and there are some heroes that inspire us to be stronger better people, but most, are just fun to watch.

This list has characters that are from our world and those that aren't , underdogs and powerhouses, normal people, and immortals alike. Some who read this won't like the fact that some of their favorites got left off. That is the nature of lists!

Grab some popcorn, and ENJOY!

Those who almost made it- John Mclain- Bruce Willis's character from the Die Hard movies. I fought with leaving him off. Tarzan , King of the Apes- If you thought the jungle was a dangerous place, wait until you meet the man who has complete control over it.Then, a sleeper that I hated to leave off was "Bruce" Leroy, from the Last Dragon. I loved his character.

Watch for the list of best heroines- Coming soon!

The greatest fictional heroes!

12. Fr. Barry, from Along the Waterfront- Marlon Brando's Character, and those that stood behind him had someone who walked before them. A brave priest who wasn't afraid to die, stood up to the mobsters that ruled organized labor (unions). Then he watched them fall, like all villians do. This was Karl Molden's best role.

11. Officer Murphy ( ROBO COP)- This hero was part man, part machine, and ALL cop! One of Hollywood's best creations, was designed to cut out a cancer...that cancer was crime.

10. Blade, the Day Walker- Born when his mother was bitten by a blood sucking vampire,this hero was fearless and relentless. He had most of their powers and good survive in sunlight. He makes the list because no vampire hunter could hold a candle to the man that could barge into a hive with hundreds of vampires, without thinking twice.

9. Indiana Jones-No one will ever play this role the way Harrison Ford did! Whether he was up against an army of Nazis, or a deadly cult, Indie always found a way to come out on top.

8.007, James Bond, had to be included! The good guy who knew how to be bad and get down with the ladies.

7. Spiderman - The fierce web slinger saved a city from itself... well, and a bunch of freaks from outer space and science projects gone wrong.

6. Rambo, John, J.-Before you criticize this pick, think of what he went through and sacrificed for those who couldn't defend themselves.

5. "Dirty" Harry Callahan- I know what you're thinking.Should Harry be at number five or number six. Well to tell you the truth, with all of this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. go ahead and criticize this...go on make his day!

4. Marshall Will Kane- The hero from High Noon, was a role that was passed up by four actors, including John Wayne. Gary Cooper was the first to say yes, and he made this movie an unforgettable classic! He was not afraid to take on 4 young, vicious gunslingers, and that is a hero in my book. As his town turned its back on him, he dug deep and stood alone.

3. Luke Skywalker- A young, whimpy looking farm mechanic, was born into a very secret, yet powerful dynasty. So secret, it took his father almost a lifetime to find out about it, and so powerful that Luke was the only that was feared by the evil supreme leader of the galaxy. Once he conquered his own fear, he broke the powerful grip of the "dark side " of the force and freed millions...starting with his own family.

2. Superman- From a distant planet, comes a man, the only man who is faster than a speeding bullet. Even though there was a way to kill him, he has to be near or at the top of any list of heroes.

1. Batman- The Dark Knight was a mortal that was feared throughout Gothlam. No villain, no matter how bizarre, could stand toe to toe with the the scarred hero bent on seeking revenge against evil.

      I agree. I like Tom Sellick, but I don't see how he could have been as good for this role. Tom was chosen first, but his Magnum PI contract made Indiana impossible for him to break away for. Wow, what a missed opportunity!

      Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones. Never to be played by anyone else, in my estimation! Thanks for the fun.

      Well, some are good ideas, but this is not about actors, its a list of the characters. No way could I add a Jimmy Stewart character, because who did he save, or take down? No one. You want Mr. Smith to be on the list? Seriously?

      Then Wolverine was cool but you would have him as one of the 10 best heroes ever? Really? He only joined the Xmen because he want to get it on with Jean, and no one but Professor X would have him. He really didn't care about too many people.Here I thought I'd catch grief for not adding Spiderman, not Wolverine!

      Wow! Very nice. Name calling and concealing your id. like a coward. Actually, you are dead wrong! Batman had no personal reason for going after The Riddler, Mr. Freeze, The Penguin ...and so on. Yes, it was personal between he and the Joker, and Harvey Dent. However, Batman fought the others, solely to save innocent lives!

      Why don't you write a list? Is it because your grammar is awful, or because your ability to write stops at name calling?

      Love the movies and love your selections, Mike. I would also add John Wayne from True Grit, James Stewart from almost evey role he played, Sean Connery from the James Bond films and Hugh Jackman from X-Men. Whatcha think?
