My successful movie character is Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films. Jason is a very successful movie character because of the amount of time, work and money put into the film. He is also a horror movie icon because of being the one of the best and first slasher movies, with it being very well done and sufficiently scary. I think another hint of him being a successful movie character is just Jason himself. At the time, a lot of horror movies were somewhat bad and a bit cheesy, but once audiences met Jason, the demonic machete wielder from Crystal Lake, audiences were sold right away.
