Tom Cruise does a lost more in his movies than just flash his million-dollar smile and have nervous breakdowns in locker rooms with Cuba Gooding Jr., you know. Over the course of his nearly 40 years in movies, Cruise has taken on a wide variety of formidable enemies, whether they be made of flesh and blood or something else. Like any true movie hero, the man just can't get away from conflict.
In honor of the release of "Oblivion," which has Cruise taking on yet another new opponent, we've created an infographic that illustrates just how much fightin' Tom has done over the years — and who (or what) has been on the receiving end of his furious wrath.
