What do Batman, Captain America, and Dracula have in common? No, they don’t all have a mother named Martha, but they’re all bad-freaking-ass in their stories! In fact there are so many cool male characters that we sometimes forget women can be just as amazing at what they do. Here’s a short (and I mean extremely short) list of my favorite female badasses in TV and movies.
Let’s start off with someone that everyone loves and adores…
Buffy Summers (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer)
Three words: teenage vampire slayer. What could be cooler than that? Well, seeing as we’re just getting started – a lot of things. But you know about Buffy and her Scooby Gang, protecting Sunnydale from the forces of demonic evil, right? Yeah, she deserves more recognition!
