Top 10 Action Heroes

In Andrew Klavan's fantastic Homelander series, Charlie West is a straight-A student turned teenage action hero. It's got us thinking about our top ten favourite action heroes. In no particular order...

1. Indiana Jones - Ok so he's getting on a bit now but Indie puts the action in action-adventure. And he gets extra points for inventive use of the ultimate action hero accessory - his trademark whip!

2. Jack Bauer (24 ) - The man who single-handedly manages to save the world, and ALWAYS pulls it off in 24 hours. Does this guy ever sleep?? What a man.

3. Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) - A sharp-shooting, kick-ass action heroine. Like Indie but looks better in shorts.

4. Jason Bourne (The Bourne Trilogy) - He may not have a clue who he is but he certainly knows how to fight.

5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Nobody pierces a wooden stake through the hearts of the evil undead quite like this lady. If Charlie West is the karate king, Buffy is most certainly the karate queen.

6. Princess Leia (Star Wars) - She may be royalty but she's not afraid to swing a light saber. AND she has the most iconic hair-do of all time.

7. Neo (The Matrix) - Let's face it, if you were in a spot of bother you'd wish you could pull some Neo-style moves out of the bag. The coolest action hero ever? Probably.

8. Charlie's Angels - Ok, so technically there's three of them. But they've got some killer moves and they're not afraid to use them. Girl power with knobs on.

9. James Bond - The ultimate British action hero - suave, sophisticated AND he gets his hands on the most amazing gadgets. No wonder the bad guys don't stand a chance.

10. Charlie West of course!!
