What, like that John Dillinger bloke in the 1920's, who was the original public enemy No.1, and yet a hero to others?
No.2 "No matter what significance you may hold for me, to the Village and its committee you are merely citizen No.6, who has to be tolerated - and if necessary shaped to fit."
No.6 "Public enemy No.6!"
To many the Prisoner-No.6 is a hero, or anti-hero depending on your point of view. While in the Village he’s a rebel, a troublemaker, but then what would you expect when a goat comes amongst so many sheep. He is a reactionary who resists the Village. He’s disharmonious, disruptive, and an outcast from society at large! And yet we applaud his behaviour, although in society such behaviour is frowned upon, perhaps in the Prisoner's character people see something that they would like to be.
For years the Prisoner was a hero of mine, like John Drake of ‘
’ But in recent times I’ve come to look upon the Prisoner as a character who is too good to be true. Perhaps I have reached the point where I no longer believe in him in quite the same way as I used to. He no longer mesmerises me! Danger Man.
