The term "Anti-Hero" gets tossed around a lot, describing a diverse set of characters from Deadpool to Larry David! But where does this term come from, who were the original anti-heroes, and what separates these characters from their counterpart, the traditional hero? On this episode of WatchMojo's Troped, we'll be going all the way back to Ancient Greece to trace the lineage of this archetype from The Odyssey, to Hamlet, to The Sopranos, all the way to Daredevil and Deadpool! We'll also take a look at why there are so many anti-heroes on TV all of a sudden.
