#7 – James Bond
This man is a true icon whose middle name is action. Remaining remarkably cool in all sorts of crises, the British Secret Service agent is a master of overcoming his evil foes using brains, brawn and an array of amazing gadgets, including a water sphere which allowed him to ‘walk’ on water and a pen which doubled as a gun. He’s been on the silver screen since 1962 and has not been killed yet despite attracting the attention of some rather nasty individuals such as Jaws, whose metal teeth were used to fatally bite his unfortunate victims. He never made a victim out of Bond though. No one could.
