Giving the heroine/hero topic more thought, I began wondering when a
character might be more of an anti-heroine or anti-hero, instead of a
heroine or hero. Would some of the music legends be more like anti-heroines
and anti-heroes than true heroines and heros? What about rock stars addicted
In wrestling scripts the shift from hero (or anti-hero?) to villain can be
quite abrupt. A character who was a favorite of the crowd could suddenly be
transformed into an evil menace with one good dirty double cross.
OTOH for some wrestling fans, the villains are the heroes.
