I had a revelation about these two characters and how much they are similar yet contrast each other.
One is a good guy doing a bad thing.
the other is a bad guy doing a good thing.
One fights using advanced technology.
the other uses nothing but the ancient art of swordsmanship.
They are both skilled leaders who don mysterious guises and go to any lengths to get the job done, and they jeopardize their normal lives by taking on these roles.
And above all they are both complete badasses! XD
