Curses - I should have thought of the Infinite Improbability drive!

OK, continuing the five things series - give five titles (of SF related books, films, TV series, comics, etc.) that contain the word "Legion" - if something exists in more than one genre it counts as one "thing", not two or more. And no two should have the same author.

Of course this addition is too easy really.

Legion, in comics and the marvel tv series (i kind of have a thing for the 60's stylism portrayed in the series, lady androids with moustaches just fits the 60s) oh yeah and that oriental basket head mystery man.

I was going to ask for another list of five, but I think for this question I might have to cut it back to three …

Name three female science-fiction protagonists from before 1980, from different authors/SF universes. By "protagonist" I mean "principal character", i.e. the person the story revolves around. Although Lieutenant Uhura, for example, is a main character, she's not the principal character. Honor Harrington would count, except she was created in 1992.

Books, TV, or film, but they all have to predate the 1980s. Three will win it, but there are bonus points if you can get five …

DC's Wonder Woman would have to be on the list.

spud42 takes it (despite some doubts on my part regarding Wonder Woman, and to what extend she's really SF … but I'm not going to police genre boundaries this time!).

Other pre-1980 female protagonists could be Mary, from Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman; Snake, from Vonda N. McIntyre's Dreamsnake; and Ellen Louise Ripley, from Alien.

I expect there are one or two among Ursula K. Le Guin's works.
