100 sci fi women #43: Max Guevara

Max Guevera  Dark Angel


Max is a bike courier. She is also a super powered genetically enhanced super woman who can run ultra fast, fight anyone and leap between roof tops. While created to be a super soldier, along with her fellow transgenics as a young child she was a key part of a rebellion against their captor/trainer/creators and escaped into the post-apocalyptic normal world. while trying to keep out of trouble and under the radar, she gets sucked into the world of doing good by Logan Cale. Mostly she just wants to find her “family” – the other children she escaped with, as well as work out how she belongs in the world. Max is powerful and clever, and despite her fears that she is not quite human, cares deeply for others, particularly those who have been genetically messed with like her. She is also incredibly loyal to her friends, even if she has to reveal her true identity from many of them. And of course, she is super gorgeous, defiant, sassy and reluctant to be told what to do. She really only works with Logan to achieve her own ends…and because her own good nature sometimes gets the better of her.

And I think the surname is a fairly unsubtle hint about her nature.

Max: “Oh, please tell me you’re not one of those people: Because a raindrop fell
in the ocean 10,000 years ago and a butterfly farted in India you and I are
sitting right here right now enjoying a cup of coffee that tastes like goat
piss.”

Sam (Zack): “Anything’s possible.”
Max: “Unravel this mystery, grasshopper, what is the sound of one hand hitting
you upside your head, hmm? “
