Ten years ago today, the world met Veronica Mars. A fresh-faced newcomer named Kristen Bell made her TV debut as teenaged private eye, ostracized by her fellow students,who solves crimes on the side, including the murder of her best friend.
"I feel like Veronica, her superpower is being able to say what she feels. To speak the truth, which I think for teenage girls is an especially empowering notion..Though she has no special fighting power or super power, her ability to speak her mind, I think made her special to fans." - Rob Thomas

In the second draft of the Star Wars script, the character Luke Skywalker was changed into a woman. From the book Making Star Wars:
Lucas made a significant alteration to the second draft during the last couple of days in March 1975: He changed Luke into a girl. “The original treatment was about a princess and an old man,” Lucas explains, “and then I wrote her out for a while, and the second draft didn’t really have any girls in it at all. I was very disturbed about that. I didn’t want to make a movie without any women in it. So I struggled with that, and at one point Luke was a girl. I just changed the main character from a guy to a girl.”

*weeps for what might have been*
Why don’t make an Elseworld…
It already is.
