Aeon FluxAnimated Character
Born: June 1991
Best known as: Sexy animated assassin from MTV's Liquid Television
The animated anti-hero Aeon Flux debuted in 1991 as part of MTV's cartoon series Liquid Television. Created by Peter Chung, Aeon Flux is a female assassin whose futuristic espionage adventures set records for cartoon body counts. Long-legged, wasp-waisted and spidery, she wears a skimpy chastity belt, disregarding its traditional purpose in the extreme. With overtones of fetishism and sado-masochism, Aeon is sexy, cool and often ruthless. The cartoon spawned a 2005 live-action film starring Charlize Theron.
Extra credit: Variety reported in February 2004 that Charlize Theron would be paid $10 million to star in the Aeon Flux feature. Theron followed in the bootsteps of Angelina Jolie, who played animated heroine Lara Croft in two Tomb Raider films.
