This Samus reminds me of the girl in the cover for Star Wars: Intergalactic Funk by Meco. Awesome!

A lot of bounties don't take me seriously, just because I'm a woman.  And lucky for me, that's always their downfall.  They think a gal can't handle a blaster for beans, and the last thing a lot of them see is that very blaster aimed dead-center at their foreheads.

But this was going to be my toughest challenge yet.  The Galactic Federation hired me to take out Captain Ridley's Space Pirate crew, and if that wasn't enough, rumor had it that they had stolen Metroids for use as bio-organic weapons.

But worst of all, Mother Brain was online.  But at least this way, I can finally settle the score between us.

Hey man, leave Samus alone, you have already ruined Dragonball Z please don't ruin Metroid.  Why do you think making everything look like shitty pictures of Marilyn Monroe is cool/good?

P.S. It looks like you have some talent, you just should not trust your own brain on how to use it properly.
