Mal Reynolds may have gotten top billing, but we all know who was really running things on the Serenity: Zoe.

It's been over a decade and Zoe Washburne (Gina Torres) is still a fan favorite hero of Fox's short-lived Firefly. She was tough as nails, sweet when she wanted to be, and didn't take crap from anyone. Oh, and she's always on point with a good one-liner. For would-be future space heroes, she stands as an inspiring figure for what a real hero should be.

Plus, c'mon, that coat is just awesome, right?

Check out our tribute below (and follow our 28 days of heroes here).
