For a long time, beautiful female aliens were usually only included in stories as love interests. But in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the gorgeous, golden Ayesha is anything but a romantic side role. When the Guardians of the Galaxy steal her batteries (no one steals a woman’s
batteries), she will not let the slight slide, embarking on a galaxy-spanning quest to wreak vengeance upon them.
From her unapologetic arrogance to her psychopathic tendencies, Ayesha embodies many qualities that society at large might deem “unladylike” (can we just throw that term away already?). Her presence as a villain in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 shows the world that beautiful lady aliens can be just as intent on your destruction as giant purple Titans with colorful rock collections.
