Except among his peers, the identity of the SEAL Team 6 member who shot and killed Osama bin Laden will remain secret. Thus the fearless, highly trained badass who took out one of the world's greatest villains on a dangerous top secret mission will not be publicly celebrated. The SEALs are quiet professionals, indeed.
But, that doesn't mean we can't glorify the guy. So, using the information available to us--remarks from military personnel and a collection of action movies--we decided to let our imaginations run wild and assembled how we picture this incredible Special Ops specimen. After careful consideration, using the greatest features from Hollywood's finest action heroes, behold: the most lethal badass action figure ever created.
Each number marks one action hero's feature. A detailed explanation follows after the jump.
(1) Mind: Neo
Dubbed "The One," Keanu Reeve's "Matrix" hero could stop bullets with his mind and learned jiujitsu in about one minute. That's tough to beat.
(2) Wit: James Bond (Sean Connery Edition)
The worldly man lived by his wits and had a keen eye for detail. Shaken, not stirred, indeed.
(3) Charisma: Indiana Jones
Harrison Ford's professor, archaeologist and charmer was also a bona fide badass. It's no wonder he's a popular Halloween costume.
(4) Attitude: Mike Lowrey
In "Bad Boys," Will Smith's Lowrey was the perfect blend of arrogance, sarcasm and anger. "Now back up, put the gun down and get me a pack of Tropical Fruit Bubblicious."
(5) Speech: John McClane
It would be an honor and a pleasure to be insulted by Bruce Willis' foul-mouthed, terrorist-hunting cop in the "Die Hard" franchise. "Yippee ki-yay, motherf***er."
(6) Arms: Rambo
Sylvester Stallone's "First Blood"-era arms were made out of titanium alloy, Louisville sluggers and actual alligator tears. Something like that.
(7) Hands: Bruce Lee
The "Enter The Dragon" master's personal martial arts philosophy, Jeet Kune Do, translates to "Way of the Intercepting Fist." Makes sense.
(8) Chest: Arnold Schwarzenegger
(9) Heart: Bryan Mills
This was Liam Neeson's character in "Taken." Failure was not an option. He's not the youngest of the bunch, but Mills' passion was incredible.
(10) Legs: Major Scott McCoy
Fact: Once a cobra bit Chuck Norris' leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
(11) Marksmanship: Sergeant Martin Riggs
Mel Gibson's "Lethal Weapon" cop had perfect aim with everything from a Beretta 92 to an AK-47. It's the only thing he was ever good at.
