Not actually violent. I've just got a thing for violent and mouthy heroes that stab Dick Angels in the face and/or save the world.
Also for John McClane. Who'd TOTALLY stab an Angel in the face if it started acting a dick.
And for Captain America, who would stab you, but only if his shield wasn't handy. Otherwise all he's got for you is vibranium to the face. He's also mouthy, so a pretty well put together hero.
