September 2017 is SYFY's 25th anniversary, so we’re using it as an excuse to look back and celebrate the last 25 years of ALL science fiction, fantasy and horror, a time that has seen the genres we love conquer the world of pop culture. For us, that means lists! ALL THE LISTS! We’ll be doing two “25 greatest” lists per day all throughout September, looking back at the moments, people, and characters that shaped the last quarter century. So keep checking back.
Please note: Our lists are not ranked; all items have equal standing in our brains.
What items in our lists were your favorites? Did we miss something? We welcome respectful debate and discussion, so please let us know in the comments!
Sci-fi and Fantasy television and film has no shortage of classic characters, but many times those numbers are lacking when it comes to the female set. Thankfully, that has started to change. From fierce warriors to stalwart politicians to reluctant heroes turned revolutionaries, the past 25 years of genre TV and movies have given us dozens of characters for young girls (and boys) to look up to. Here are some of our favorites.
