Sci-Fi Babies

RIDLEY SCOTT RETURNS TO THE GENRE HE HELPED DEFINE
Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender Lead an Extraordinary Cast in the Epic Sci-Fi Thriller Debuted on Blu-ray 3D,
Blu-ray and DVD 10~9~12
In one of Prometheus’ most intense moments, Dr. ElizabethShaw must abortthe alien fetus she’s been impregnated with. Luckily, not all interspecies sci-fi babies are suchhorror stories, though.

From vampire/human hybrids to alien women and Vulcan Starfleet officers, take a look at these friendlier Sci-Fi feature creatures.




SPOCK
Star Trek

Mr. Spock is often torn between his infamously logical, Vulcan half and his human half; mostly due to his deep love for and loyalty to his human mother. An outcast on his planet, he finds solace in Starfleet, where he excels as an officer and forges an iconic bond with Captain James Kirk. 



BARF
Spaceballs

John Candy’s “Barf” is an obvious parody of Star Wars' Chewbacca in Mel Brooks’ obvious but totally clever parody of the famous George Lucas trilogy. But he explains it best himself: “I'm a Mog. Half man, half dog. I'm my own best friend.”



RENESMEE CULLEN
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Renesmee is, famously, the vampire/human hybrid child of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. Thought to be a threat by outsiders, the Volturi, the ruling vampire clan, travel to Forks intent on destroying the Cullens. Twi-hards everywhere are waiting with baited breath to find out what happens. 



PERCY JACKSON
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

When first we meet Percy, he is believed to be a teen troubled by ADHD and Dyslexia. Turns out, though, that he is, in fact, the son of Poseidon, God of the sea. In an epic series of books, Percy proves himself to be quite god-like himself. 



BLADE

Based on a Marvel comic of the same name, Blade is born human with vampire genes after his mother is bitten by a vamp during childbirth. As a result, as one of the most powerful beings alive, Blade swears vengeance upon the one who killed his mother.



CHARLES XAVIER
X-Men


The man who would become “Professor X,” Charles Francis Xavier was born in New York City to, a well-respected nuclear scientist, Brian, and Sharon Xavier. But despite his normal, human lineage, Charles eventually finds he is able to read minds and control things telekinetically, ranking him as a top dog among mutants. 



MR. TUMNUS
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Author C.S. Lewis has said that the first Narnia story, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, all came to him from a single picture he had in his head of a faun carrying an umbrella and parcels through a snowy wood. In that way, Tumnus, half faun, half man, was the initial inspiration for the entire Narnia series.
