Living in the danger zone is no easy task. It takes a special type of individual; one who can always get out of potentially deadly situations and still make time for a sarcastic remark. When enemies are near, this individual is not only fearless, but also enraged by their interruption of cocktail time. These are everyday tasks for Sterling Archer of the ISIS intelligence agency. When Archer and his self-titled animated series premiered in 2010, viewers were introduced to a new type of hero. Although Archer possesses many of the typical qualities of a secret agent, his real claim to fame is his cynical and slightly prima donna attitude.
