Top 10 Best Badass Action Character Heroes

So much of modern TV and movies has become wussified. Real men characters are being replaced by overly-sensitive, politically-correct, social justice warriors. Diversity and whiny-liberal themes have overtaken modern entertainment. For example, consider what Disney has done to the once-great Star Wars franchise. The Last Jedi and Solo movies ripped out the testostone-pumping fun and focused all their attention on diversity of characters. Women dominate the leadership & fighting positions, while the men are all idiotic, reckless, and neutered. This top-10 list is a throwback to the good old days where movies concentrated on entertaining rather than preaching, back when men were really men.
