    I remember there were Breaking Bad flashback scenes that showed Walter as being capable of villainy long before the series started--he had just lacked the opportunity. As for The Sopranos, the early seasons did an incredible job of showing what he was capable of doing without remorse. I think viewers reactions to characters like this reveal a great deal as to why populist leaders win democratic elections around the world.

    Well, I suppose Homelander is like the wet dream of every far-right person out there, and saying to these people "you know, some things you do or you believe in aren't nice" never goes well.

    Sadly this happens, see also Alf Garnett who was an inspiration for Archie Bunker in the US.
