During the Great Depression, there were no superheroes, but there was a very real Robin Hood. John Dillinger was a bank robber who led the FBI on a year-long manhunt, during which he and his "Dillinger Gang" robbed an impressive 12 banks. Every bit the antihero, Dillinger lived a life that most people only dream about, provided they have a loose sense of ethics. He escaped from prison multiple times, openly antagonized the authorities, and even robbed plural police stations. Was he a bad guy? Sure. But he made being bad look fun.
