I’ve hesitated to include Samus here for a couple reasons: the Zero-Suit, the way she is often rendered while wearing it, general overexposure, and of course, the still-smarting disaster that was Other M.
But you know what? If I can’t support a 6’3”, 200lbs, bounty-hunting, alien-blasting, armor-wearing silent protagonist whose arch enemy is a giant cybernetic brain, then I don’t know what I can support anymore.
Here’s to you, Samus, and here’s hoping Team Ninja never gets their hands on you again.
