It's the greatest science fiction and fantasy screen heroines, though, and I don't think Ms. Marvel's appearances in The Super Hero Squad Show qualify her. Now, when she makes her movie debut, as I'm sure she will eventually, that'll be another story.
I've used her in many avatars, which appear on people's monitors, therefore she counts.

Another major heroine who should be there is Lois Lane, who has had a number of memorable screen portrayals.
Yes, and this is a problem, since I'm not sure if to put them all as one entry, or to pick one particular... and it doesn't help that I am not really that familiar with different Superman adaptations.

Yeah, there have been a bunch of Superman adaptations. I see you've put multiple actresses for some of the characters, but in the case of Lois there have been half a dozen actresses who've played the part in live action, plus several animated incarnations.

The most popular versions of the character are Teri Hatcher's portrayal in Lois & Clark, Erica Durance's in Smallville, and the Dana Delaney-voiced iteration in Superman: The Animated Series. Margot Kidder's portrayal of Lois in the Christopher Reeve films has a lot of admirers, but a fair number of detractors as well. Kate Bosworth's Lois in Superman Returns was pretty widely disliked. Many still have fond memories of the earliest live action portrayals of Lois Lane by Noell Neill and Phyllis Coates.

Are you registered as a member on Rankopedia? You could add Lois Lane yourself, that would be better since you know about the subject more than I do.

I'm not registered yet, although I'll register sometime soon so I can vote. I don't want to clog the list with a lot of different Lois Lanes, though, so one is probably best, even though some of the portrayals differ quite a bit.

Kate Austen should be on the list, though, along with Juliet and Sun, as well as Cordelia Chase.
Well, they're all added now. But I first have to fix a problem with Rankopedia, which has gone insane and is automatically deleting candidates with 1 vote first, instead of those with no votes. (This has just happened with Samantha Carter and Deanna Troi, who are both on the rankings list but gone from the vote page.)

I added those two back again, but the votes for them are gone, so the people who voted for Samantha Carter and Troi will have to vote again if the vote for those candidates if the vote is to stand.

I won't add any more candidates until a few more candidates without votes are deleted, I don't want the ranking to get screwed up further.

A few candidates have been deleted to make room for new ones, so you can now add Lois Lane, and anyone else you want.

Nice poll!

1. Kara ´Starbuck´ Thrace
2. Dana Scully
3. Juliet Burke
4. Ellen Ripley
5. Kira Nerys
6. Laura Roslin
7. Princess Leia Organa
8. Sarah Connor
9. Aeryn Sun
10. Turanga Leela

although I'm not sure Pris counts as a "heroine."
A lot of 'em don't really count as heroines...but list them all and let the peanut gallery decide.
