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.



Middle-aged, life-long Texan with a substantial chip on her shoulder.

    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.
