To see your world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower. Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, An eternity in an hour.

I had a heated conversation with a friend about a very important subject, Superheroes. Yes crucial topic  in my geeky mind superheroes are extremely essential they  not only inspire me but serve as magnificent motivation. If you are a close friend of mine, you might already know that I’ve tried…… and tried to find a female superhero that just takes my breath away!! But unfortunately the only thing I can come-up with is wonder woman. She defines the typical “Superhero” a benevolent fictional character with superhuman powers, such as Superman. And we all know about Superman right? He is the least favorite character for many people. I think we just ignore the guy because he was born with his powers, and I personally have a thing for the underdogs. Most people dislike daredevil, but he rose above his limitations without the help of a spider bite.
Batman , Bruce Wayne witnessed the murder of his billionaire parents as a child and swore to avenge them. He trained extensively to achieve the pinnacle of human perfection, mastering detective skills, martial arts, and criminal psychology. Costumed as a bat to prey on criminals' fear and utilizing a high-tech arsenal in his crusade to rid Gotham City of crime, the legendary Batman was born. The guy is a genius not only with his mind but also with his physical abilities! he has no super human powers but boy can he fight evil. What do we lean from Batman kids? Well that anyone can be a Hero if they work hard enough.
That’s exactly what I want in a Female lead! But what do you know I’ve found my girl. Should I thank the UK mmmm maybe.. Lara Croft! As an archeologist, she travels all over the world looking for historic (and mystical) artifacts before they fall into the wrong hands. Her reputation grants the nickname "The Tomb Raider". Lara is a regular human, in peak physical conditioning.  She is a skilled marksman trained with many forms of firearms as well as with traditional bows.  She is also an excellent hand-to-hand combatant and skilled in piloting many different forms of vehicles.  Despite her excellent physical attributes it is more often her mind which allows her to escape from dangerous situations. Bam! Favorite female character of 2013 and possibly 2014 I don’t see myself getting over Lara anytime soon,  {well she inspires me so toned arms here I come}.
