Which character is better: Han Solo or Indiana Jones?
The case for Han Solo is simple: He's a badass loner who doesn't play by the rules. Save the princess? Sure, fine.... if there's a reward in it for me! Harrison Ford plays a cocky, funny, selfish but somehow lovable space hero, a lawbreaker with a heart of gold. His best friend is a Wookie. The character is made all the sweeter now that decades later we find out he settled down (for awhile at least) and became a father with Princess Leia.
Unlike Han Solo, Indiana Jones is a man of culture. He's educated. He's a professor. And he also happens to fight Nazis. With a whip!
Indiana Jones has all the bravado of Han Solo, but adds an air of intelligence, adventurism and detective work. Sure, Indiana Jones isn't in the future and doesn't even know what a light blaster is - but he's also the main character. That's right, we went there. Han Solo is a sidekick—Indy is the main event!
