There’s this clichéd and completely baseless notion that science fiction is for geeks. It is one of the most progressive genres out there and the genre takes steps towards giving a woman agency in the narrative. Of course it also has its flaws of objectifying some of the women characters. However, we here have made a list of the sexiest sci-fi women characters in science fiction movies based on an intersection of physical appearance, scope of the role and acting talent.
12. Aeon Flux – Charlize Theron
Theron plays a deadly assassin in a futuristic city that is presumed to be the last stand of humanity. Theron’s character however, questions the status quo and a lot of discrepancies are revealed. Dressed in a tight outfit, combined with dangerous combat and killing skills and a general tendency to question authority figures, Aeon is one of the hottest characters that the sci-fi movies have to offer.
11. Major Mira Killian – Scarlett Johansson
Appearing in Ghost in the Shell that received a lot of criticism for whitewashing and undertones of racism, Johansson nonetheless delivers an excellent performance. An AI with a robotic shell, she stops terrorist attacks in a futuristic society and her tendency to sometimes break protocol and her mechanic efficiency while looking smoking hot at the same time earns her a well deserved place on this list.
10. Persephone – Monica Bellucci
