An ActionAdventureSeries created by Don Pendleton in 1969 that is [[LongRunningBookSeries still continuing to this day]]. Over six hundred novels have been written featuring the protagonist Mack Bolan and various spin-off characters.

Mack Bolan (nicknamed "The Executioner" by his fellow soldiers) is an elite sniper / penetration specialist in TheVietnamWar when he receives word that his father Sam, a steelworker in Pittsfield, has [[PaterFamilicide gone insane and shot dead his wife Elsa and daughter]] Cynthia ("Cindy"). On talking to the SoleSurvivor, younger brother Johnny, Bolan discovers that his father was being squeezed by Mafia {{Loan Shark}}s and, on hearing that his daughter was prostituting herself to cover his debt, snapped under the pressure.

* AwesomenessByAnalysis: In ''War Against The Mafia'', Bolan deduces that [[spoiler:the Mafia conference going on in the mansion's upper room is actually a decoy by timing it and recognising the actions of the participants are too regular.]]



* Badass: Bolan constantly goes up against hordes of mobsters, terrorists, cartel members, and other heavily armed groups and wipes them out while receiving only minor injuries. Many of Bolan's allies also qualify, including the Able Team and Phoenix Force members. Some of Bolan's tougher enemies also qualify.

* DeathFromAbove: In the final shootout in ''War Against The Mafia'', Bolan spends a large part of it thinking it's going too easily and wondering when the mobsters are going to unleash their "big punch". It turns out to be [[spoiler:an attack helicopter.]]
