CosTalk Special Edition: Best of Samus Aran

Samus Aran is celebrating her 30th birthday in 2016, so let’s honor the beloved character by celebrating who’s worn that iconic space suit the best. Our protagonist of the Metroid science fiction action-adventure game series by Nintendo. She was introduced in the 1986 video game Metroid.
An ex-soldier of the Galactic Federation who turned into a Galactic bounty hunter of Space Pirates and their leader Ridley along with the parasitic energy-draining organisms called Metroids.
Including appearing in every Metroid video game, Samus has been featured in the comic book version of Captain N: The Game Master and the Super Smash Bros. series. She is well known as one of the earliest female protagonists characters in video game history, and as 2013’s Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition declared Samus as “the first playable human female character in a mainstream videogame”

We’ll share our top 10 favorites and let you vote for yours. So without further ado…
