The Toughest Science Fiction Characters Of All Time

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.

Doctor Who Gets Filtered Through Dr. Seuss, And The Results Are Delightful

DoctorsWhoDoctor Who is already as much fairy tale as science fiction. A crazy eccentric visitor who lives inside a magic box and invites young people along on amazing adventures — in a world without Who, that could easily describe some lost work by Roald Dahl. But what if the world of The Doctor instead collided with another beloved children’s author — one with whom he shares a fake doctorate. The results might look like the image up top, the brilliant work of a deviantARTist calling himself DrFaustusAU. He’s given a Seussian makeover to tons of science fiction staples such as Star Wars, Alien, and Predator. Great Seuss’ Ghost, just look how cute his Daleks are!

Comic(s) Relief: Archie vs. Predator Looks Like The Most WTF Mash-up In A Long Time

There have been some weird damn comics crossovers throughout the years. IDW Publishing has teamed the Ghostbusters up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not to mention joining forces with BOOM! Studios for the recently launched Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive. But for sheer WTF factor, you’d be hard pressed to find a weirder crossover concept than the upcoming Archie vs. Predator. Yes, you read that right.

And with no further ado, here is Die Hard: Alien vs. Predator.

Predator Is About To Meet His Strangest Foe Yet

predatorWe all know that Predator bleeds, but killing it has been something that many different characters have tried to accomplish, and the damned thing just keeps coming back for more. For its next dose of mass mayhem, Predator is heading to the quaint little town of Riverdale for Archie Meets Predator. Yes, Archie Andrews, the redheaded ladykiller who has sparked groan-filled chuckles for more than 70 years. Crossovers just don’t get any better than this. Sorry, I mean they do, but this is still fantastic.

Dark Horse Comics is teaming up with Archie Comics for the mash-up, which will span four issues starting in Spring 2015. The miniseries sees a whole squad of Riverdale teens—including Betty, Veronica, Cheryl, and Reggie—heading out to spring break in Costa Rica after Jughead wins a prize from a bag of chips. Some of the females are competing in a best-dressed competition, and a fight between Betty and Veronica ends with the blonde sweetheart running off into the jungle. And we all know what hangs out in the jungle. Bugs. But also Predator. Take a peek at the first image below.
