The Top Ten

James Bond - James Bond Series
How can you argue against 007? He is just too good, he could fill this entire list.

2Ellen Ripley - Alien

the best thing about starling (besides that shes hot) is that she has a backstory that explains the reason for her crusade

12Han Solo - Star Wars
Han Solo is the rebel of the galaxy. Whether he shot first or not he's just awesome. I mean come on. He's so cool that he can date his bet friend's sister and he doesn't care. We all love him and he knows.

13Edward Cullen - Twilight

14Legolas - Lord of the Rings
Throughout the films you start to wonder why he couldn't fight this war himself. I mean, he can take down a giant elephant without a beat of sweat on his forehead. He's just so perfect.

16Neo - The Matrix

17Aragorn - Lord of the Rings
Aragorn may have no political background, but he does give out some truly moving speeches.

You can't get more heroic then Wesley Gibson (James McAvoy) disposing of a warehouse full of bad guys including the worst of the worst, Sloan (Morgan Freeman)
