Some people wonder why no one made a big deal out of the Zero Suit until recent years. Samus has had it since Zero Mission, right? So what’s the big deal?
The big deal is that, as you may or may not recall, Nintendo wasn’t making it the focal point of her character back then. She also didn’t choose it over her armor 9 times out of 10, she wore it because it was literally all she had after crash-landing. And what did she do while wearing it? Pose for T&A shots? Monologue? Submit to a man’s every order? Cower before her opponents? No, she acted no different than she always did, she went right on ahead and stealthily fought her way past her enemies to get her armor and weapons back. Because before the existance of Other M, Samus made the suit what it was, not the other way around. Samus was a badass hero who happened to be female, not a female who made an effort now and then to be a competent hero.
She also didn’t have such stereotypical marks of femininity as high heels, which the artist for Zero Mission specified she must never have, a beauty mark, huge boobs, total lack of muscle tone or a height of about 5-foot-nothing. And until Other M, NEVER was it suggested that Samus needed the armor to be strong—Samus was an ultra-powerful superbeing infused with alien blood, the armor was just for extra protection. But now they constantly push this idea that she’s weak without it, to the point where they claim she needs gaudy 4-inch rocket-powered high heels in order to be of equal power to the other characters in the Smash Bros. roster.
Let that sink in: According to Nintendo, Samus is such a motherfucking pussy that if she’s not armored up, and even if she has a weapon, she needs those heels just to be on the same level of strength as a fat Italian plumber, a fitness instructor and a young everyday human in charge of a peaceful village of furries.

"this baby came out of you but im not 100% sure its yours"
Funny thing - a woman who applied for welfare after her husband left her hadto supply DNA evidence he was actually the father. The results: he was definitely the father, but she wasn’t the mother. Her children were removed from her custody and she was sued for fraud, even though she insisted they were her children.
Turns out, she wasn’t a surrogate or a kidnapper (the two most obvious explanations) - she was a chimera. As an embryo, she fused at a very early stage with her twin, forming one individual. Her ovaries apparently developed from cells that had originally belonged to her vanished twin. Later on more tests showed that while the woman’s skin and hair DNA did not match her childrens, DNA taken from her cervix did.
WHAT THE FUCk
This went from stupid to really interesting in point 5 seconds.
