If I would’ve had this version of MJ as a kid, I would have wanted to be her instead of Spider-Man, and that is why she is such an important character to me.
She was like a breath of fresh air, not only reflecting my own traits back at me, but also reflecting back traits that I aspire to have, or to develop further.
When I was working out the differences between boys and girls, Coco came along and proved that girls could be good with computers.
She introduced me to a world that broke what I thought were the rules. We did not have to be the damsels in distress. Peach could save Mario. Zelda could fight back against Ganon. I could save myself and others.
Having the courage, confidence and self belief to go out into the world, and into the sacred land, and do whatever needs done even if it is terrifying is inspiring.
Oh yeah, she’s definitely a pure badass with some of the strongest attacks and power-ups in the game. But unlike other female fighters in games, she has a beautiful heart.
Without Lara Croft, there wouldn’t be a NekoJonez today. The Tomb Raider franchise has been quite important in my life.
What could I possibly have in common with the blue-eyed perfect blonde mage? As it turned out, quite a lot.
Which characteristic is more important to you: loyalty or honesty?
