Asides from Wonder Woman and Red Sonja, this was the other cool girl power character that probably helped shape my love in strong-willed-kick-butt female character in books, movies and shows. Sure, I don't actually remember that much butt kicking going on, but it still featured a girl with a sword. And although I liked He-Man too, given the choice, I always preferred She-Ra. :)
She was cool and carried a sword. How appealing is that for a little girl to see on screen? It just cracked me up that just like Wonder Woman and He-Man, she pretty much looked the same in both identities. Lol. Gotta love the big hair too!
