FireflyFirefly’s Malcolm Reynolds listed on Top 100 Fictional Male Role Models
Thursday 1 March 2007, by Webmaster
#10. Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly/Serenity)
Almost every single one of Malcolm Reynolds’ friends get killed in an interplanetary civil war - specifically, the Battle of Serenity Valley. He loses his friends, loses the war, and is out of a job in one day. How does Mal choose to go on? He gets a crew, gets a new ship, and names it after the battle that took away everything he had. You can talk about Mal’s cleverness, or his fearlessness, or his physical strength all you want. What really sets him apart from the other men on this list is his ability to keep going in life, no matter how shitty or unfair things may get. You keep going, and you don’t let the horrendous, soul-crushing things of the past get to you. Mal’s real strength is emotional, not physical.
