#2 – Lara Croft
Based on the video game series Tomb Raider, this beautiful all-action lady is intelligent and athletic, not to mention deadly. American actress Angelina Jolie first played Croft in 2001 where she was involved in a race against time against villains to recover powerful ancient artefacts. Along the way, she had to disable a sinister robot after being attacked and fight off a massive six-armed statue that miraculously came to life. Not to mention killing a man, using hand-to-hand combat, who had killed her father. I wouldn’t fancy my chances against her.
