Moral Hero

By way of a follow up to the previous post, The Wire also has a character who is the anti-Marlo. He is a man with a disciplined code of conduct, though only The Wire could have its moral hero be a homosexual gun slinger who robs drug-dealers for a living.

Marlo and Omar first cross paths at a poker game, and from there on in the show chronicles the interacting fortunes of these two players of the game who are so similar on the face of it and yet so different.
