In response to Ladies Week, I decided to tip my hat to the girl that helped pave the way for other bad ass female characters in the area of video gaming. Everyone's favorite intergalactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran.
In 1986, Metroid was introduced and everyone was shocked to find that Samus.....
Was actually a girl! O.O
Years later, Samus has not lost her edge.... nor her sexiness while wielding that deadly arm cannon as she ventures the galaxies in search of her next bounty.
Sadly, due to Nintendo's unwillingness to take a risk, we may not ever get treated to a live action movie. I did, however, find this impressive, animated short by Dave Rapoza. @shannonl5
