Who is the greatest character of the 90s and why?
I'm going for characters that epitomized the decade rather than just my favorites.
80s: Gordon Gecko. For better or worse he was the poster child of the 80s and 'Greed is Good' was the motto.
90s: Tyler Durden (and his alter ego). The duality of the character encompasses the materialism of most of the late 20th century but foreshadows the desire for a change common among all so called 'lost' generations. Shame we didn't listen to Tyler.
