Just a guess without looking:
Tony Soprano (longshot)
Iron Man is probably there even though he was a second banana until RDj took the role.
Roland from Dark Tower just to throw a bone to Steven King?
The popularity of Tony Soprano spawned a whole new class of character on television, the anti-hero. Vic Mackey, Tommy Gavin, Dexter Morgan, Walter Whyte, Don Draper..even Jonathan Archer had a dark side, of sorts. You would have never seen Kirk or Picard depressurizing an airlock with someone still inside of it, enemy or not.
