Something I've wondered some is what the difference is to people between an anti-hero, and an outright villain. Are there certain actions that no matter for what they are committed are always evil, or can anyone be a hero as long as their goals are in the right place? Or rather, they are acting for the right side, for the goal part has been broken by many an anti-hero. Is Snake in Escape from New York really an anti-hero, or just another villain among the masses of them. I bring this up because I'm all about character depth, as many of you probably know from my reviews, so the question is what's the line? Does one even exist, or can anyone fulfill the anti-hero role as long as their intentions are in the right place? To further probe this, look at the Comedian from Watchmen. Is he really even a anti-hero anymore, or is he a villain? He has attempted rape, I think because I've only seen the movie so not sure how this is handled in the comic. I don't even know his intentions for that matter. An interesting question I hope. I myself find I'm mostly with the intentions argument, but draw my line at rape basically, although I consider Snake a villain because in the long run he hurts civilization more than helps it. Also, for the rape, if there is a character written out there well enough, who knows.
