A – Awesomest Anti-Hero – Literary Smackdown #AtoZChallenge 2016

AtoZChallenge 2016 AGreetings and welcome to the very first day of the AtoZChallenge. Every day this month (except Sundays) we will have a Literary duo for you to vote for your favourite.

Today we are starting with everyone’s favourite: the Awesomest Anti-Heroes. We have two very interesting gentlemen, one right out of classic literature, the other from modern comics  and we want you to tell us who should win this little contest.

Who will you vote for in Literary Smackdown

  • Heathcliff
    Often seen as a romantic hero from Emily Bronte‘s Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff ends up the bitter anti-hero. His love for Catherine Earnshaw starts off pure, but when he does not get what he wants his pride becomes malicious cruelty. From hero to villain, is he the Awesomest Anti-Hero?


  • Loki
    The trickster god of Norse legend, Loki is a popular figure from Marvel comics and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The fallen prince, thrown into turmoil when he discovers he is Jotun not Aesir, sending him into a downward spiral. To begin with he desperately wants to prove himself, committing terrible acts to convince Odin he is still worthy. Then he sets his sights on being a true villain. Is Loki your Awesomest Anti_Hero?

Vote for the Awesomest Anti-Hero







We picked two of our favourite Anti-heroes to go head to head, but please tell us about your favourites in the comments as well.

What is the AtoZChallenge?

For those who don’t know, the AtoZChallenge is a giant blog hop with thousands of blogs taking part. Every day in April, apart from Sundays, these blogs will post using a letter of the alphabet at a prompt, e.g. A on 1st, B on 2nd etc.
It has been running since 2010 and was thought up by the lovely Arlee Bird who put out a challenge and it has grown and grown since. It is a superb way to meet other bloggers and to have a huge amount of fun.
