Danielle's Dangerous Hero Addict Suppport Group 2011 Mega-Challenge
Duration: January 1-December 31, 2011
Update: 1/12/10
Tier I: Rank Your Bad Boys/Dangerous Heroes
Dangerous Hero Scale
10:Completely lethal, seemingly remorseless, has no problem killing to get the job done, or killing as the job. Killing someone doesn't phase him. It's either him or them and don't let someone be after someone he loves. More or less amoral-except when it comes to things that have true value to him (like his heroine or his family). The mission is all that matters to him (at least until he falls for his heroine).
9:Not the guy to mess with. He has few boundaries he won't cross.
8:He can be ruthless. Not above doing almost anything for self-promotion. Has and will betray those close to him if needed. He has a code, but it's his own code--not necessarily in line with established laws, rules, or mores.
7:Most people would probably consider him insane or crazy, or just kinda whacked in the head. A scary guy.
6:Ruthless to get the job done, or to get what he wants/needs/or to protect others.
5:A hero who still has the aura of a bad boy, but is more laid back and open and not necessarily quite as ruthless. Any hero who has stalkerific tendencies is automatically a 5. He's not the type that is completely unpredictable.
4:He has shown that those who mistake him for a ordinary, nice guy are wrong. He'll surprise you!
3:He will do 'bad' things for reasons he feels is necessary, and not feel too much regret about it. He has no problem claiming, kidnapping, or taking his heroine when the situation calls for it.
2:Slightly more volatile than a 1. Most of the time he is very well behaved, you just don't want to get him riled up!
1:mild-mannered most of the time, but when his fuse gets lit, watch out. He becomes the most dangerous man in the room.
