Sydney Bristow, Alias
If you haven’t seen this slick super-spy series from JJ Abrams, get thee Netflix immediately! In the role that made her famous, Jennifer Garner’s double agent Sydney Bristow repeatedly takes on men twice her size—and washes her hands of them with ease. Watch season one’s penultimate episode “Rendezvous,” in which Syd single-handedly (or should we say single-footedly?) takes down a half-dozen dudes to save her friend, Bradley Cooper, who can only watch, mouth agape. He’s not alone. Some of her stunts are jaw-dropping.
