SFF Heroes: Ripley

Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in Alien and its sequels was the  pioneer female action hero.  She has no superpowers, but she’s tough and ruthless, she can run like hell, she loves big guns, and boy, she’s determined. 

It was wonderful to see Weaver return to SF in Avatar – she’s the best actor in it by far. 

Once upon a time, women in SF and Fantasy stories screamed fearfully and waited for the guy with the biceps to save the day. No more; thanks to Ripley.
