tgoyetteDamsels in distress?2013-03-04 06:10:28
tgoyettePrincess Leia was strong as were the women of Babylon 5. The characters are more interesting this way. However there are examples of damsels in distress who need rescuing. Back in the 1980ís the film Krull had a weak female character. However, the book tie-in had a more enjoyable strong. Iíve heard lots of complaints about the daughter on 24. So which female character needs the most toughening up? Guys too, if you know some.2013-03-04 06:11:08
IronspiderI'd offer up Niki (Molly Ringwald) in the Spacehunter film. Starts off and remains a damsel in distress, though she does come out the far side bloodied, bruised and battered and gives the various bad guys a run for their money!2013-03-07 01:22:47
tisiphonepedantic, yet I couldn't stop watching: Still a huge fan of Lyra Belacqua in The Golden Compass, more so in the books. Also, Denna (or variations thereof) in Patrick Rothfuss' books is the most kickass damsel in distress ever--actually she is most definitely not interested in being rescued.2013-03-07 17:26:02
