Lara Croft is my role model.

I strive to be a tough and independent female in my life, and I think it is great for me and all people.

Others? Hmm?

How about Daredevil-not letting bad things slow you down, or the X-ma for accepting themselves.

I don't think Lara makes a good role model simply because there's nothing unique about her. Sure she's independent and strong, but there are plenty of other sexy female characters who are the same. I suppose she can be a role model if she's the only strong woman in your video game/comic book world.

I think a great role model from a comic book is Naruto.

Like Soma, Lara is my role model as well. In moderation of course. I don't focus on her every move on ths games and wish, " Man I wish I were exactly like her." because that's not really what I want. I want to be myself, but I also admire some of Lara's traits and I'd like to be strong and independant like she is. And as corny as this may sound, I look at my Mom as my biggest role model. Sure, she makes mistake, but so does every one. Sometimes I do get upset with her (It's very rare) but she is just a great person all in all and I look up to that. My mom actually has a lot of Lara's traits lol. She is very strong and independant and not afraid to speak her mind. If she has a problem with some one she lets them know it, she refuses to let any one run over her.And while she can be very tough, she still can be very loving too. If I ever have a problem she's always there for me. I really look up to that. Plus, I love hearing all of her stories when she was younger, she was so cool! lol. One time she was dared to jump off this super high bridge into the water and she did! She said she thought she was goingto die lol, because it was a HIGH bridge! lol. I can't believe she atually did that lol. She is awesome. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
