The Toughest Science Fiction Characters Of All Time

fb share tweet share

Science fiction plays host to some of the toughest characters in all of fiction, so we’ve set out to put together a team of the toughest of that tough bunch.  Think of it like the Avengers, except with more bullets and a heavier focus on fighting aliens.

If you’ve got a job dismantling angry robots or shooting at things in outer space, or you need someone to travel back in time and kill your creepy Uncle before he’s born, we’ve got the ultimate team to do it.

These are the most unstoppable, gritty, hard-as-nails characters in all of science fiction. On their own each is fully capable of saving the universe. Together we suspect they’d literally be able to do anything.

SarahConnorSarah Connor

When you first met Sarah Connor, she was a meek, mild-mannered waitress just sort of floating aimlessly through her life. Encounters with a vicious, single-minded cyborg from the future, sent back to hunt you down so your son is never born, have a way of changing that. Over the course of the first two movies in the Terminator movies, Sarah transforms into a serious action star, teaching herself all manner of combat and survival skills, actively seeking out any and all knowledge that might help her in her one-woman war against Cyberdyne Systems and a future ruled by human-hunting machines. Basically, she’s a perfect addition to your team of mercs, and will always be working to improve her already ample skill set and add to the team.

Dredd Producer Details What Has To Happen To Make Dredd 2 A Reality

fb share tweet share

When it was released in September of 2012, Dredd was an absolute bomb at the box office. But the movie found a new life as people discovered it on the home video market, where it broke sales records and gathered a rabid fan base. Ever since, people have been clamoring for a sequel to the ultraviolent actioner. While that’s very unlikely to happen, producer Adi Shankar recently released this video that explains all of the things that would need to fall into place for Dredd 2 to actually happen. Check it out for yourself below.

Comic(s) Relief – Dredd: Uprise Returns To The Movie Universe With A Bang

fb share tweet share

UpriseFeatEven though Dredd fans are still waiting for a live-action sequel to get the greenlight, it’s rather amazing that the box office failure has managed to inspire not only a crazyballs bootleg animated series, but also official comic book sequels. Enter Rebellion’s Dredd: Uprise #1, the first in a two-issue arc continuing the cinematic storyline of Dredd. It’s mildly disappointing that this intriguing storyline will already be completed by this time next month, but it will hopefully assist convince producers and studios that we need more big-screen Dredd in our lives.

In Dredd: Uprising, some citizens of Mega-City One — particularly those in the slummy part called “The Spit” — are protesting the massive mega-block construction called Oemling being built right in the middle of everything. When one Judge unknowingly steals the car of a community hero, the level of unrest grows monumentally. Behind it all is a faceless Anonymous-type threat that calls itself “Uprise,” with a more progressive and bullet-ready approach to protesting. But who is Uprise?

Watch All Six Insane Episodes Of Dredd: Superfiend

fb share tweet share

The legions of fans of Dredd, and we know there are a great many of you out there, have been clamoring for a sequel, and while we’re probably not going to get a proper follow up, especially not anytime soon, we’ve got something new to keep you occupied for the time being. Last week there was a flurry of activity around Adi Shankar’s unofficial, loosely connected web series Dredd: Superfiend, and today all six episodes appeared online. If you paid attention to any of what popped up last week, you know it’s not exactly what you expected, or hoped for, but it’s batshit crazy and definitely worth checking out.

Shankar, a producer on the Karl Urban starring Dredd, which tanked hard at the box office but found a rich second live in the home video market, also served up this intro which you can watch above. He lays out the reasons behind this endeavor, stating that this is a passion project, intended as a thank you to all the rabid fans. Again, he makes sure to reiterate that this “bootleg universe” is not official, that neither 2000 AD nor Relativity even knew this was going on, and this is not intended a pitch for anything beyond these six short videos.

Dredd: Superfiend: Watch This Full Trailer For Judge Death’s Origin Story

fb share tweet share

While we’re not likely to get a sequel to Pete Travis’ 2012 comic book adaptation Dredd, at least not anytime soon (no matter what star Karl Urban says), we’ve spent a lot of time recently talking about a follow up of sorts. Dredd: Superfiend is an unofficial, unsanctioned adaptation of the 2000 AD comics title, and so far this week we’ve seen the first photos and a teaser trailer. Now we’ve got the first full-length trailer, and like everything we’ve seen thus far, it’s not exactly what we expected.

The brainchild of Dredd producer Adi Shankar, who, as he points out in his introduction, has no legal or practical claim on this material, this is definitely more in line with the comics than the movie. While the film is stone-dead serious, the comics are very satirical in nature, and that comes across in this longer look at Superfiend. While I was initially concerned about the look of the animation, the twisted, Heavy Metal-ish style actually feels like a good fit for this particular take on the source material.

Watch The Trailer For Dredd: Superfiend Web Series

fb share tweet share

Yesterday we showed off a first look at the upcoming unofficial Dredd sequel Dredd: Superfiend, and the general consensus is that it wasn’t exactly what we expected when we first heard about this project. Not that it won’t be cool, but we just didn’t necessarily anticipate seeing a cartoon. And hot on the heels of that reveal, we now have your first look at these images will look like when they actually start moving around your computer screen.

The brainchild of Dredd producer Adi Shankar, this is not necessarily meant as a follow up, per say, but as something for the fans to have fun with and enjoy while we wait, most likely in vain, for Dredd 2. Despite star Karl Urban’s unending optimism, it’s doubtful we’re ever going to get a proper sequel. Even though Pete Travis’ film has legions of fans that discovered the grim, gritty comic book adaptation on home video, it was a complete and utter failure when it briefly stopped in theaters in September 2012.
