The agent archetype is really interesting to me, it has elements of the Hitman ideal, ie mastery of death but at the same time there is a strong element of the Adept or the Initiated Master. The Agent has the ability to "read the world" and for him "luck" is really a form of literacy in the language of the world.
But also the Agent is a explorer, for example going back to William S. Burroughs, the "Agent" is the Adept as outsider exploring the culture of the world and reporting on it. Someone who is both dreaming and awake.
I don't mean to channel Joesph Campbell, but it is interesting how our media heroes echo classic archetypes, mastering death, mastering knowledge of the universe as a dream, mastering the language of causality.
Fun stuff, at least to me
