Thelma and Louise: The Tale of the Antihero

This is tested by anarchistic villains like the Joker.
Batman
Dexter Morgan
The Postmodern Antihero
Paradox: The serial killer who kills killers.
Most of his victims are killers who have "slipped through the cracks" legally speaking.

Alex
Vicious killer living in a vicious cruel society of the future
He is forcibly trained against committing acts of crime and sexual deviance as a reform by the authorities.

Fights against the predominant social structure (Lord Farquad) in order to attain true love with Princess Fiona as would be expected of the traditional hero.

This sets up a marginalization for them as they are forced to choose between being victims or killers by society due to their gender.
They eventually commit suicide together to escape the situation altogether.
V
V is a terrorist fighting against a British oligarchy from an alternate future.
V's origins as a character are traced back to a form of concentration camp conducted by this same government and as a result, his cause becomes more morally sympathetic to the audience.
Through his terrorist activity, V empowers ordinary citizens of England to overthrow the oligarchy.

Silver & Black, which is about Silver Sable and Black Cat, has been called a buddy film by Prince-Bythewood, who compared the movie to Thelma & Louise and Midnight Run. "I wanted to tell the story of two damaged women who are at war with each other but need each other to survive," she said.
