What does the statement "Some of the best heroes are flawed anti-heroes" mean? In my story I have a character that is a police officer investigating a crime and instead of just going around and collecting clues to solve the crime, he takes matter into his own hands to solve it, physically beating people in some cases for information. In the end, he is the hero because he solved the crime and captured the killer, but that doesn't make him a good person really...Does my character fit the 'flawed anti-hero' title? What examples in literature would you say had a strong 'flawed anti-hero.' What does 'flawed anti-hero' mean to you? Thanks.
