Everyone wants to be a spy. A life filled with globetrotting adventure, cool toys, and the thrill of living on the edge has had appeal for generations, but spy fiction is often dependent on the era it comes from. Today’s spies have been refined from decades of camp and bombast into a class of agent that emphasizes style, efficiency and realism.
But who is the best modern spy? We’re pitting eight undercovers, secret agents and assassins from the last decade head-to-head to see who the best modern operative is. So screw on your silencers and dirty up your martinis, it’s spy vs. spy, and only one can be the best.
