With the 1st overall pick in the 2012 POG Movie Character draft Sblum2711 selects...
The one and only John McClane. IMO the most badass regular old human American cinema has ever seen. From single handily taking down Hans Gruber and his goons in the Nakotomi building to figuring out the genius plans of Simon; John McClane is an American hero. He's provided us with the classic send off line of Yippee-kahya mother****er and delivered one of my favorite lines in movie history... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4Vxs2pXSPc
The man is always hungover and still manages to always ruin some german bad gays day. I know this pick may be a slight reach but I couldn't have this American badass hero not on my squad.

"Bond. James Bond."
Iam Fleming's debonair spy is not only a film icon; he might be the the icon of the British film industry. Here's how big a deal he is culturally: in the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremony, the character appeared as the bodyguard for the Queen. The star of twenty-two films in the second highest-grossing film franchise ever, Agent 007 has defined the secret agent/spy genre and influenced countless other movies and characters.
The legendary (if perhaps a touch sexist) charm of James Bond, established early in the series by his portrayal by Scottish heartthrob Sean Connery, the first of six actors to play the character. But who can complain about the phenomenon of the Bond Girl?
Bond's serial womanizing, martini-drinking ("shaken, not stirred"), and high-stakes gambling may serve to obscure his overall status as a badass. But the man with a License to Kill Bond was more than a ladies' man:
In sum, I'm happy to have one of the greatest characters in film on my team.

Whereas James Bond would be dead about fifty times over if not for the technology gimmickry some weirdo named Q makes for him (Q is the real hero of England imo), Indiana Jones is a bad ass with extreme intelligence. He's saved the world from certain destruction multiple times over. He's fought Nazis, Commies, ninjas, cults, cults of Nazis, the undead, and undead Nazis. He's probably fought other types of Nazis, but these were not cataloged on film. Indiana Jones has been so successful against humans he even sometimes attacks members of the animal kingdom to mix it up a little bit. (Except snakes. Never snakes.)
Indiana Jones, bad ass archaeologist and certified Nazi killer, is my #1 pick.

He's a mentally handicapped guy who becomes a handegg star, vietnam war hero, ping pong star, instigator of the watergate scandal, meets countless presidents, shrimp boat captain, runs all over the USA for years, becomes a bazillionaire, marries his childhood sweetheart, and raises a child.
