Recently I read a Modern Family fanfic. I won’t describe it because, frankly, it was disgusting, poorly written, and prurient even by fanfic standards, but one thing about it was plausible (again by fanfic standards). In the story most of the extended clan got killed; Claire and Gloria are the only survivors, and Claire then studies up on weapons and fighting and goes on a roaring rampage of revenge. Reading this, I thought, “Yeah, I can totally see that. Claire is wound up way too tight NOT to go on a revenge quest even for NORMAL things.”
Which brings me to the thread questions. What characters in half-hour sitcoms can you see morphing into action heroes, given the right stimulus?
