ENTER! SF/F Av Contest: Rebel, Rebel.

The Wild Ones (1953)
Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?
Whadda you got?



This week's contest is all about rebels--quite a common theme in science fiction and fantasy. The rebel is anti-establishment, turning on its master, trying to escape oppression, fighting against "the man," fighting to stay free physically, politically, mentally, spiritually.

Some examples are:
The crew of Blake's 7
The rebels in Star Wars
The Browncoats of Firefly
The Resistance in the different versions of "V"
The main character in V for Vendetta
Castiel in Supernatural
The Maquis in Trek
Robin Hood & Co. from Robin of Sherwood

I'm sure you can come up with even more on your own. If there is any question about whether someone is a "rebel" or not, I will make the final call. Any science fiction or fantasy book, comic, TV show, or movie featuring a rebel, rebellion in social or political forms, beyond that of a kid wanting to dress differently--not a rebellious teen, but something that's more part of a larger movement or struggle.

Standard BBS rules apply: 150 x 150 pixels & 140 KB max. Please do not post avs you do not intend to enter. I'll put the poll up on Tuesday.
Here's mine, a show I discovered when I was teenager:
