Strong & Sexy Women Dominate Comic-Con: 'Twilight''s Stewart, 'Resident Evil's Jovovich & Rodriguez, 'Total Recall's Beckinsale & Biel [Video]

Comic-Con may be known for its fanboys, but this year the girls rule. If it's not Bella Swan finally kicking ass in "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" as a vampire, it's Michelle Rodriguez vs. Milla Jovovich in "Resident Evil: Retribution" or Kate Beckinsale vs. Jessica Biel in "Total Recall."
