'Nikita,' Snow White On 'Once Upon A Time' And More: Most Kick-Ass Women On TV (DEATHMATCH)

While we wish there were more, there is an incredible group of kick-ass women on TV at the moment -- and now we can add another to the list.

"Hunted" is making its debut (Fri., Oct. 19 at 10 p.m. ET on Cinemax) and follows Sam Hunter (Melissa George) a spy working for a private intelligence agency who survived an attempt on her life and is back working with a vengeance. In her review of "Hunted," HuffPost TV's Maureen Ryan said, "It's fun to witness how often the wiry blonde can kick some meathead's ass."

Currently, the titular character on "Nikita" (Maggie Q) is also busting skulls and taking names, as is an unlikely lady on "Once Upon A Time," TV's favorite white-haired woman on "Game of Thrones," and Season 3's amazing addition to "The Walking Dead."

Who do you think is the most kick-ass TV woman in recent history? Cast your vote for the first group of combatants below! Don't see your favorite? Never fear -- we've got plenty more rounds and match-ups to come, so stay tuned.
