We create our demons, we create our gods. Whether it is fiction or reality, it works with our agreement. Through pop culture, we have seen a number of powerful individuals. In comic-book culture, we have these incredible men and woman, ranging from Superman to Wonder Woman, from Hulk to Thanos. They are indestructible and mighty, although they are a product of fantasy. But, here we are looking at powerful men and woman who have lived among us. They ruled us with their fist and guns, and they grabbed power like it was a commodity. They were fearsome, cruel and unstoppable. Here, I’m presenting you one of those people who were above rules and morality. Let’s hear for Tommy DeVito from GoodFellas....

The Mighty Force

Funny?? Funny how???
Funny?? Funny how???

Based on the life Thomas DeSimone, Scorsese created Tommy DeVito as a short-tempered, ruthless gangster, and boy what a creation he was. Earning Pesci his Academy Award, Tommy was a memorable character with some unique characteristics. These traits made him a force that no one should mess with. After all, who else would kill a young man with no particular reason??

Of course, every mountain will seep into the earth one day. Tommy, as well as his real life counterpart succumbed the eternal fall in the end. But what if, that whole event turned out in a different way?? What if there was a task team to weaken him gradually and then destroy his legacy? The following are such four personalities who could succeed in such a task, in my opinion of course....

The Fearless Four

1. Kevin McCallister : The Mastermind

Ah, little, gorgeous Kevin. Outside, he is a lovely boy who is innocent in his looks and deeds. Inside, he is a ticking time bomb! If you have any doubts, ask Harry Lime. Kevin is mastered in deploying booby traps. God knows what else comes into his devilish little mind. What else they might be, it won’t be any good news for the one who is up against him. His plans involves in shadow combat, rather than a face-to-face combat. Even if they are not lethal, they sure are dangerous....

2. Mona Lisa Vito: The Saboteur

Mona Lisa Vito is a woman with will and strong self-esteem. Even the quirky lawyer Vinny Gambini couldn’t contain her. This part of the attack is infiltration. All you have to do is to pair up Tommy and Mona, and you are in for a furious battle between those two personalities. They are so much alike, and they are so much competitive. When these two equal forces collide, certain destruction will occur on both sides, and that’s what the whole purpose of an infiltration. If there is anyone who could oppose Tommy on the same side of the coin, it’s Mona....

3. Jake La Motta: The Muscle

Jake La Motta, the Raging Bull himself can be acquainted with the task of demolishing Tommy. Jake is a self-centered person who had put himself above everyone else. For that he rummaged everything under his iron fist. He fought with his wife, and even his beloved brother, who was one of the most important people in his life. Just because of a mere doubt, Jake attacked his brother viciously, right in front of his wife and kids. His ignorance to the other people’s feelings makes him a worthy contender to our list. He has a reputation that he never cared much. He will blow anyone who he thinks is against him. His rage can be used as a weapon as an occasional blow on DeVito, through distraction and manipulation. Now, this solution cannot be applied for more than an extensive period, but it will be helpful to break Tommy’s will and soul....

4. Frank Marino: The Executioner

Another instance for infiltration and this one as a final blow, Frank Marino is the most dangerous of them all. Frank was the right hand of Nicky Santoro, and he was the one who butchered Nicky and his brother with a baseball bat. Frank has loyalty to only one thing- Power. He was tasked by the big boss to eliminate Nicky, and he obeyed it without any remorse. The same can be done with Tommy. Playing a double agent, Frank can infiltrate Tommy’s gang and he can bring it down in style, with a baseball bat.....

Honorable Mention: The Mob Boss

Had to give it to them, now should we? After all the psychotic rant and ruthless murders, they were the one who took Tommy down with a single bullet. Even the four of our favorites failed, we can call them for a backup, and all they have to do is inviting Tommy to ‘make up’. Hell, that is one fu**ed up ceremony....
