3 Great Avenging Characters of TV and Movies

Celebrating the Eurochannel premiere of Beyond Suspicion, a psychological crime thriller in which a therapist becomes a serial killer, doing justice to abused women, we have selected three famous avenging characters of movies and television.

Dexter – Dexter Morgan

Dexter Morgan is one of the world’s favorite serial killers on TV. The brainchild of author Jeff Lindsay, he became famous across the globe thanks to the award-winning portrayal by Michael C. Hall. In both, the novels and the TV series, Dexter is a forensic blood analyst working for the Miami-Metro Police Department.

In his spare time, he is a vigilante serial killer targeting murderers who have evaded the justice system. He follows a code of ethics taught to him in childhood by his adoptive father.

The Equalizer – Robert McCall

In places where justice isn’t served, people always dream that men like Robert McCall were real. He is a retired Marine and Defense Intelligence Agency operative who, after promising his recently deceased wife that he would leave his former activities behind, lives quietly in Boston. However, McCall uses the skills from his former career to make justice on behalf of innocent people who are trapped in dangerous circumstances.

Taken – Brian Mills

“I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.” That is the final sentence that made the leading character of the Taken films saga famous, said to her daughter’s kidnappers when he finally gets to speak to them. Bryan "Bry" Mills is a retired CIA operative masterfully portrayed by action hero Liam Neeson. After becoming divorced due to the strain his career put on his marriage, he decided that family was more important to him than his job. However, he is forced back to action when he crosses the globe to rescue his 17-year-old daughter after she is kidnapped by a group of Albanian human traffickers and sold into sexual slavery while traveling in France.
