InfoGraphic: Evolution of the Lady Action Hero

Stumbled upon while wandering the wilds of the WWW . . .

Evolution of the Female Action Hero

While I will be forever torn between Ripley and Trinity as my favorite, I'd like to find out about your favorites and discuss who was skipped.

  1. Forgive me, I'm catching up on posts today...
    I HATE HATE HATE the Nikita ads! They all seem to be her crouching in an itty-bitty skirt with the camera aimed at her left hip the whole time. I keep wanting to hand her a pillow and some underwear before she Sharon Stone's me on network TV. I would literally rather she wore more or less clothing, because she's not sexy, she's just a faux pas waiting to happen. Anne Parillaud and Peta Wilson were so much more graceful - I even preferred Bridget Fonda in the American remake, Point of No Return.
    Also, you know I'm a Whedon freak, so I'm of course I'm going to harp on the exclusion of the other Slayers in that blurb. Also his turning of non-combatants like Willow and Cordelia into effective and powerful heroes on their own. Oops - also forgot River Tam and Zoe Washburn from Serenity/Firefly, Fred/Illyria and Cordelia (again) in Angel.
    Ok - harping over.
