Not every superhero starts off as a hero. Some characters need to find their own way, coming from a dark place before finding their way to the light. Songbird is a character that started off as a villain, but transitioned into a courageous team player, becoming leader of the Thunderbolts.

When it comes to wrestling, the key to success is creating strong characters and memorable storylines. It’s also about being talented at what you do and there are plenty of entertaining wrestlers in the WWE and on the independent circuit.
