Irritabelle

In commercials for the Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) medication Viberzi, Irritabelle (Ilana Becker) is the red-headed personification of a stomach ache with diarrhea, who always makes an entrance at the most unwelcome moments. She follows in the footsteps on weirdly chipper spokespersons like Flo the Progressive Girl and the Orbit Gum Girl.

Tina Goldstein

In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Propentina Goldstein (Katherine Waterston) and her sister Queenie raised each other after their parents died of Dragon Pox. She works a ho-hum position for the Magical Congress of the United States of America , at least until she runs into Newt Scamander on the streets of New York.

Newt Scamander

In the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Newton Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) attended Hogwarts where he studied magical creatures, nearly getting expelled for an experiment before his transfiguration teacher, Albus Dumbledore, stepped in. After school, he is commissioned to travel the world and write about the magical creatures he encounters, leading to adventures in New York City with sisters Tina and Queenie Goldstein.

Constantine

Constantine

In the 2005 film Constantine, John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is a weary and cynical chain-smoker who, as in the TV series, is able to sense and communicate with half-demons and half-angels on Earth. He exorcises demons back to hell to earn favor with heaven and avoid eternal damnation for a suicide attempt in his youth.

Logan

Taking inspiration from the Old Man Logan comic series, the film Logan has Hugh Jackman portraying a graying and gritty Wolverine, capping a 17-year run with his final appearance in the role. Logan is scraping a living as a limo driving, hustling medications south of the border for Professor X when a young mutant pleads for his help.

Khal Drogo

In Game of Thrones, Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) is the cheftain of the Dothraki, a savage and nomadic horse-riding people of the eastern continent. A legendary warrior, he desires a beautiful and exotic woman for his wife, and finds her in Daenerys Targaryen.

Archie Andrews

In Archie Comics, Archibald “Archie” Andrews is a typical small-town teen who attends Riverdale High School. He has a dog named Spotty, a best friend named Jughead Jones, and crushes in Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper, tangling him in a love triangle.

David Haller from Legion

In Legion, David Haller (Dan Stevens) is the mutant son of Professor X, who possesses telepathic and telekinetic abilities like his father. He’s diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age and winds up at a psychiatric hospital.

James Delaney from Taboo

In Taboo, James Delaney (Tom Hardy) is a former corporal of the East India Company who returns from Africa to London to inherit his late father’s shipping empire. But he quickly learns that he’s also inherited his father’s legacy, which is shrouded with conspiracy, murder, and betrayal.

Sagat

In the video game series Street Fighter, Sagat is a renowned fighter in the style of Muay Thai kickboxing. He has an imposing physique, standing at over 7 feet tall with a hulking, 280 pound muscular build. He also has a large scar across his chest as a reminder of when Ryu “shoryukened” him.
