Coolest hero in pop culture?

As it does, Entertainment Weekly has released another list: The 20 All-Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture.

Honestly, it's not the best roundup. Sure, there are some fine picks (Han Solo, John McClane, Ellen Ripley), but Bland Bond and Stiff Superman and the whiniest hero in film history? Whither Tony Stark?

Actually, even Iron Man himself doesn't stack up to The Film Official's personal pick. Now, we're cheating here since these are technically two heroes, but how could you not pick this duo?

I mean, they fall in love, they save the world -- and oh by the way, the female half of it isn't some helpless little girl, either (do you really want to make Eve angry)? But she still has a heart (or heart-like parts, anyway). After all, that's why she -- oh, but that would spoil it for those who haven't seen it ...
