Everyone loves the rogue.  It’s a truism that’s more true now than ever before, thanks to Hollywood’s love of the morally ambiguous character.  It’s admittedly hard not to love Disney’s take on Aladdin, and Captain Jack Sparrow has had enough success to carry eleventy-seven movies with nothing but his wits and some eyeliner.  Heck, there’s at least two X-Men whose entire schtick is nothing BUT “mysterious scoundrel” (but only one of them pairs it with pink plastic armor) and Douglas Fairbanks managed to milk an entire career out of playing the roughneck rogueish scoundrel, leading us to today’s *coughMalReynoldscough* query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) argued Han Solo versus Jo Nah for about ten minutes before declaring John Constantine to be the victor, asking: What character from anywhere in pop culture is your favorite scoundrel?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    The one true Han Solo, the one who shot first and not the “Special Edition” retconned Han that shot in retaliation or defense.

    Coming in close behind, though, are Dr. Gregory House and Elim Garak.

    Its a tie between Han Solo and Manji from Blade of the Immortal.
