Back in 1981, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead made its debut, introducing the world to Ashley "Ash" J. Williams, an unlikely hero who would save the world time and time again from the undead. Since his debut, Ash has made the rounds, appearing in movies, TV shows, comic books, and videogames, earning his rightful place in horror history. He was even voted the greatest horror movie character of all time by Empire Magazine.
