Top 10 Male Fictional Characters of the 2010s

egnomac
A while back I did a list series of the best female fictional characters of each decade and now its time to do one for the guys, the top male fictional characters of the 2010 decade 2010-2020 from Movies, TV Shows, Cartoons, Anime, video games and any form of media.

The Top Ten

1 Tony Stark/Iron Man - Avengers: End Game Tony Stark/Iron Man - Avengers: End Game

I really couldn't figure out who to put for #1 so I went with Tony Stark/ Iron Man who made the ultimate sacrifice to defeat Thanos. - egnomac

Will miss him in the MCU, he's the biggest selfless hero ever. - codgtamk34

2 John Marston - Red Dead Redemption John Marston - Red Dead Redemption John Marston is a central character and the main protagonist of Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare.

Plain and simple, just awesome. On an unrelated note, I think there are a few characters who shouldn't really be here because they debuted before the 2010s-examples include:
Hiccup (debuted 2003)-I can forgive this one as the books are somewhat obscure
Jon Snow (debuted 1996)-again, a case of the adaptation overshadowing the original
Deadpool (debuted 1991)-says it right in the description under his name...
Star-Lord (debuted 1971)-simple mistake, nobody knew who he was until 2014 anyway
Iron Man (debuted 1963)-the 60s were when all the "big" Marvel characters debuted (including most of the Avengers), and even if we say "movies only" he debuted in 2008, not the 2010s
Captain America (debuted 1941)-he's a WW2 character, so why would he debut 70 years after the war?
And most bafflingly of all:
Sherlock Holmes (debuted 1887)-that's over a hundred years too early for this sort of thing. I REALLY hope this one is some kind of joke-people can't be this stupid...

This list never said the characters had to have debuted in the 2010's just as long as the characters appeared in any media form during the 2010's decade. - egnomac

Awesome character in 2 awesome non-Grand Theft Auto Rockstar games. - codgtamk34

Great game and protaganist. - egnomac

Such a hilarious character brought to life by Ryan Reynolds who really nails the Deadpool character in terms of his witty humor, over the top action and his contant 4th wall breaks almost makes you forget about Deadpool's disastrous appearance in X-men Origins. - egnomac

I just hope Disney doesn't put him in the MCU, he's fine in the universe he's in right now. Very funny character. - codgtamk34

The way Kratos was reinvented as a character in GoW 2018 deserves major props and showcases how a demigod struggles to cope with the loss of his new love, the relationship with his son and his godhood in the wholly new area of Norse Mythology. - CrimsonShark
