Welcome to the first edition of Badass Goodies. In this series of articles I will be looking at the protagonists that we all love, but who don’t always act in a morally or legally correct manner. We all love a good-guy who is also tough and ruthless, such characters as Dirty Harry; or Jack Reacher in Lee Child’s awesome series of books. Another example in the movies is Liam Neeson’s ex-CIA agent character in Taken. He kills so many people, tortures a few and blows things up, but it is all in the pursuit of his daughter. A definite Badass Goodie.
