You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself quote The Dark Knight too many times. In order to be relatable, we need to see our heroes struggle, just like we do in our day to day existences. No victory could be felt without failure. Sometimes however, that victory can come at a cost, or the best intentions lead a good person in a very different direction. These fallen heroes and secret villains surprised us all with just where their motivations laid and what those led them to. Beware spoilers ahead and tell us some of your favourites in the comments below.
