I’m doing a research project on fat heroes/protagonists in science fiction, and am curious if any of my readers are familiar with fat heroes/protagonists in particular. Fat heroes/protagonists from books, short stories, movies and comic books are all cool, but they definitely have to be clearly painted in a positive light.
I’m having a hard time thinking of any off the top of my head.
The second part of the project is the investigation of supporting characters (including villains) which support the ‘positive’ criterion (or sympathetic, if they’re villains). I’m sure there are many more of these.
Any tips are greatly appreciated! All the information I gather will be integrated into a post of its own, at some point in the future.
