Who's the biggest on-screen rebel? Can't Post

This is based on a YouTube video I saw recently. No big surprise, Han Solo was considered the biggest rebel in that poll, but others mentioned were Batman, Bugs Bunny (I can see that) and Pee Wee Herman (not making that up!) For me, however, the biggest rebel is Loki, played wonderfully by Tom Hiddleston. But I thought of a few others - for women I went with Claire Frazier from "Outlander," who constantly rebels against the male patriarchy of 18th Century Scotland. Also Tauriel, who rebelled against Thranduil and dared to flirt with a Dwarf (played by Aidan Turner, who can blame her?)! But I don't think this list would be complete without Bilbo Baggins, who rebelled against Hobbiton society by going on an adventure with 13 Dwarves and a Wizard - ha! Top that! But there's probably loads that I haven't listed, and some of you may secretly belong to a motorcycle club or something, so tell me who you consider the biggest rebel out there!

I chose Han Solo. [In reply to] Can't Post

Since he's the only one who actually joined a rebellion.

Perhaps the Joker? [In reply to] Can't Post

What says 'rebel' better than mass-murder and utter chaos?

I don't know if that's really the "biggest" rebel, but trying to think outside the box she came to mind.

Loki's a Trickster [In reply to] Can't Post

they like upsetting the apple cart just to watch what happens; it's not about rebellion per se.

Han strikes me as one of those people who just chafe at restrictions - like a teenager. A true rebel does not just rebel against but has something they believe in and are working for. Although Han did come around to that, it was pretty late in the game and because Leia had influenced him. (She should be on the list.)

I actually just saw this on PBS [In reply to] Can't Post

because the book was of a genre that never interested me. The PBS show turned out to be interesting, and Jo certainly railed against the expected role of women, which was something I have always done. The actress in the role was terrific. Turns out Louisa May Alcott was much like Jo, after all. I particularly related to her never marrying, having a "cougar romance" with a dashing young man at one point, and generally just not following the usual role.

Okay... [In reply to] Can't Post

I will reallly date myself with this one, but Marlon Brando as Johnny in "The Wild One" got the "Rebel" image down pat.

Johnny: "Whadda you got?"
