Science Fiction Super-hero 100
Superman topped the Stratego Top 100 Sci FI character list recently as the Greatest Science Fiction Character of all Time beating Star Wars and Dr Who. Star Trek too sniff. Its great news for super hero fans everywhere to know that Christopher Reeves 'Man of Steel' from planet Krypton lives on. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No Its Superman!
There is light at the end of the wormhole for Star Trek fans too! Trek's longest running classic show with the original series Captain Kirk (played by William Shatner) commander of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 reached lucky No 7 spot. Good ol' Jean Luc Picard from TNG made 10th. In second place was Han Solo of Star Wars, while Jedi master Yoda, was third in the poll voted for by 2000 people living in the UK..
Why is it Star Wars always pips Star Trek at the post?
Galaxy Quest fighting her way in at 21st position because Ripley's an awesome female lead. Remember Gorman? 'Do Something!!!' F**K.'
I'm surprised Sigourney Weaver didn't get a higher poll position but you can blame Cabin in the Woods for denting her tough-guy reputation.
Its kind of funny to see 'Ripley' get booted off into an abyss without yelling or clawing her way back.
The highest ranked female in Stratego poll marks the release of a new sci fi game with Ripley taking names and kicking butt no less. Ah ha, favouritism! I hear you say but rest assured this Sci Fi Warrior made a lasting impression on me in a galaxy long, long ago.
I'm satisfied Ripley's ranking over Princess Leia from STAR WARS who trailed in after her at No 25 is much deserved. Now I bet theres a fight worth seeing?
Who's your Favorite Science Fiction hero?
Live Long and Prosper, Trekinators!
