Total Badasses: Ellen Ripley

I was tossing up whether to declare Ellen Ripley or Sigourney Weaver as the Total Badass. On one hand, Ripley is probably the greatest female hero in cinema history... on the other - she's played by Sigourney Weaver... and her name is Sigourney FUCKING Weaver which is probably the greatest name any real person has ever been named.

But then I noticed the shoes Ripley is wearing in this^^ image. Sci-Fi basketball adventure shoes! They probably provided the "ankle support" that allowed her to save the day!

I think "real names which are amazing" is probably a pretty good post on its own, so maybe I'll save that one up. "Maximilian Q. Adventure", if he somehow exists - has a tribute coming to him.
