Improbable Match-Up: Katniss Everdeen v. Princess Leia (Skywalker) Organa (Solo)


Princess Leia Hides in the Blockade Runner

Do you know how dishearteningly difficult it is to do a Google image search for "Princess Leia" and NOT want slave girl cosplay images? F* you, Adrienne Curry. Get a job.

This one was suggested by Frequent Blog Lurker and Founding Member of the Convocation, Jar Jar Hater. But I will give credit where it’s due: It’s an inevitable and necessary match-up to ponder.

I mean, Princess Leia blazed a trail for the Steinem crowd by cracking wise to her male superiors, so you always have to admire the cheeky attitudes we’re all more willing to indulge from our sisters, girlfriends and wives.

We’re even willing to let them serve as Secretaries of State, now.

But have we seen the dawning of the next evolutionary stage for the Strong Feminine Hero? I speak of course of Katniss Everdeen, the totally bad-ass archery pro who has the ability to care and love, while at the same time literally throwing people to the wolves. Not gonna lie: kinda awesome.

Two film characters that haunt my dreams and nightmares are from the Star Trek films. They don’t have much screen time, but boy do they make impressions. Unfortunate and lasting impressions.

So without further ado, I present the latest improbable match-up of Alien Charter Captain (a.k.a. Ears Dude) from Star Trek III and J’Onn (a.k.a. Dental Work) from Star Trek V.

So let’s get ready to Geeeeeeeeek Out.
