15 Iconic Chosen Ones

Books, movies, TV series and video games are full of them: the men and women who are destined to complete Herculean tasks against all odds, usually something like saving the world from utter destruction and such. They usually start off as the unlikely underdog, but grew into their roles as saviors, champions, and heroes.

Geekosystem blog has compiled 15 of such unlikely heroes we usually call "the chosen ones". See if you agree with their picks:

#14 Neo

Over the course of three movies, we see Neo die and resurrect himself in Christ-like fashion, become near-invulnerable by his ability to read the code of the Matrix, negotiate a truce with the Machines in return for the agent-turned-virus Smith's destruction, and sacrifice himself in order to save humankind. His powers extend beyond the Matrix, as by the third film he is able to see everything, even in the real world, connected to the Source. The peace he creates does not last forever, however, as creators continued to squeeze the franchise for money in The Matrix Online. The game was shut down due to low sales before the end, but according to the Sony forums, the planned conclusion would indeed have meant peace between humans and machines, meaning that Neo ultimately did succeed in fulfilling his foretold Destiny.
