I listened to the LOTR soundtrack yesterday morning, which lead to the need to watch the movies again, which ultimately led to the need to re-read the books sometime this year. But also, it reminded me that before I adored Katniss and Scarlet O'Hara, I adored Eowyn. Big time.
One thing lead to another, and soon I was on Pinterest creating a board for my favorite literary heroines...which caused me to start thinking about how cool it would be if these characters could band together to fight evil, à la Avengers. So here you have it:
My Literary Heroine Dream Team
Eowyn of Rohan
A.K.A. "Lady of the Shield-arm"
Eowyn totally deserves this role, but I also think that she's pretty much the only person Katniss could get along with without constantly getting annoyed. ;)
A.K.A. "The Girl on Fire"
Of course The Girl on Fire has to be a leader!
A.K.A. "Cat of the Canals"
She's cunning and completely underestimated.
Same with Vin! Plus, she can get into some pretty tricky places.
A.K.A. "The Brightest Witch of Her Generation"
Strategy should be Hermione's middle name.
A.K.A. "Every Southern Belle's Role Model"
Who better as a strategist, than the conniving Scarlet?
A.K.A. "The Mother of Dragons"
She's got this assassin thing down pat.
A.K.A. "The Other Slayer"

This one is cheating a little, but she's in the season 8 comics, so I'm counting it. :p
A.K.A. "Little Dhampir" or "Roza"
Rose could also be a leader...if only she could control her temper.
She smart, knowledgeable, AND can deal with the stress of being transported to a different time period. Every team needs a Claire Fraser (especially if she brings Jamie along with her). ;)
So...who would be in YOUR dream team?
