11:04 am: Rant on anti-heroes

Indeed... but I would say that for a character to qualify as a real anti-hero, the author must present him or her as not measuring up in some way. I guess this does involve passing judgement.

Otherwise– in the worst case– the character can become a full-fledged Mary Sue, perhaps acting out the writer's fantasies of not being bound by laws/ethics/social conventions/whatever.
