The comic book version of Barb Wire as she was during the 1990s. She’s more interesting than you may think. Skilled bounty huntress with lots of grit, a Harley and some surprising gadgets and friends.

A big article full of stuff about Yoko Tsuno, one of the old-school heroines of Franco-Belgian adventure graphic novels. A highly positive, omni-competent brainy engineer who’s had many adventures across the world, time, and space.

As of February of 2018, this article was split in two. It was a bit long to read in one sitting.

An interesting (but poorly filmed) Mass Effect character. Peak human genetically engineered shadow agent and terrorist, with a lot of baggage.

As of February of 2018, this profile has been split into two parts due to length. And because it has a lot of images. I wonder why we have so many screenshots of Miranda, I truly do.

There’ll another pass during the Spring or Summer of 2018 to improve screenshots and for general polish.
