At the New York City Hercules and Xena Convention, Lucy Lawless commented at length on how she had the best role for a woman on television, playing a character who was strong, clever, resourceful, and didn't rely on help from men. She asked the audience, "Is there any better role for a woman on television?" An audience member called out "She-Ra!" (a superhero from the 70s). Lawless put her hand on her hip and snapped right back, "She-Ra my ass!" and brought down the house.
