During the April A-Z Challenge, I’m posting six days a week, following the letters of the alphabet. I'm sharing all the movies, books and games I watched, read and played--all the influences that turned me into the geeky person and writer I am today.
X-Men series: The films include X-Men (2000), X2: X-Men United (2003), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), X-men: First Class (2011), and there’s more to follow. I didn’t read the comic, but I did catch the Saturday morning cartoon, and the movies were even better. Hugh Jackman as Wolverine was awesome and scrummy all at once.
Xanadu (1980): Slightly cheesy even in its time, but I enjoyed the magic and the music.
Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001): I love stories with strong women in the lead so Xena appealed.
Xbox: my game console of choice. It’s great to away from the computer.
What are some other shows or stories you like that depict strong women?
