7. KRISTY SWANSON AS DIANA PALMER

Love interest: Kit Walker a.k.a. The Phantom
In the 1996 superhero dud The Phantom, Diana Walker fell for the title character (played by Billy Zane) when he saved her from a panther back when they were kids. After that incident, she grew up to be as physically self-sufficient as Sir Phantom by gaining an Olympic medal in diving and a black belt in karate. Even if the panther wouldn't cross dare cross the adult Swanson, physical prowess doesn't intimidate us. We'd still stare into the eyes of this tiger.
