When she made her iconic debut during season three (technically season two's final episode), comic book fans were extra hyped because they already knew how much of a badass Michonne was. She didn't disappoint; Michonne's skill with her sword has given us some truly amazing kills. But it's her intuition, levelheadedness, and grasp of common sense that make her the perfect right-hand woman to Rick.
When others lose hope, Michonne seems to gain it in spades, being one of the few who stays open to joining communities and making a new life after the group has been burned. Her strength keeps her from allowing people like the Governor, the Wolves, and Negan from keeping her down. Yes, Michonne is lethal with her blade, but her conviction to live rather than just survive is what keeps her going and keeps us loving her!
