Locking is a last resort. Locking is for offensive threads, or threads that are irredeemably stupid, not for threads that have run their course and that people are bored of now. Nobody's forcing anyone to read this thread, and we're all mature enough to ignore a thread if we're sick of it. I've said it before and I'll probably have to say it again - I'm a mod, not a baby-sitter!

Anyway, I couldn't possibly consider locking this thread until everyone has admitted that Omar from the Wire is infinitely more awesome than any other character mentioned in this thread so far. So I guess if anyone wants me to lock the thread, you all know what you have to do.

No! It can't die yet! We haven't got a definitive answer of who's more BadAss!

(Of course if we hold to that argument then the thread will probably outlast the Indy and Bond franchises.)

Oh, no I think we could come to a definite decision. I can simply edit the first post, and make a poll with all the candidates, then after a week or so. We will look at the poll, with an ultimate answer of who is the most badass.

It is the only logical way.

P.S: I'll do it when I am less intoxicated and wont get distracted.

The Bond franchise has lasted more than 40 years, I sense a challenge.

I'm sorry, but it's really all moot.  The world's biggest badass is Mr Rogers.

I've known this for some time.  Sorry.  August 18, I posted it.  And that flash is older than LOLCATS for chrissake.  LOLCATS.

We're talking ... tronguy old.

Ultimate Showdown's good, but I'm always disoriented by trying to work out which side is the good guys... I mean, one side has Optimus Prime and the other side has Abraham Lincoln.

I prefer the much less morally ambiguous End of the World, although it does lose points for having two Alaskas.

(Although Alaska is awesome so I'll waive that point.)

There are sides in ultimate showdown?  I thought it was just a brawl.

Nope, there are sides. Or else why did Optimus Prime help out Batman?

Its like Risk or Highlander, you only pick sides to give yourself time to stab that person in the back.

Plus he broke up not one but TWO criminal organizations, then took down a third organization.

Although, technically, Fistful of Dollars, Few Dollars More, and Good, Bad, Ugly don't make a trilogy.  Leone never named it such and I think said it wasn't.

But my theory is that if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and has no name like a duck... it's a trilogy.

Ever seen any of the old Zatoichi movies? He's a blind swordsman. I mean, come on. He's blind, yet according to his movies, he fights better than all the other samurai and ninja in Japan! Come on!

And then you have Miyamoto Musashi who whittled a sword out of an oar and beat a master swordsman wielding a real sword.  Japan's all about hyperbole and, frankly, anime.

Speaking of hoes, I thought Japan was all about underage girls in revealing outfits being sexually assaulted by tentacled monsters, while geeky boys play with their phones in the background.
