Sure, as any hero of either sex doesto those around them...my point was that for some reason Ripley never attracts/has attracted such claims of feminist propaganda despite being a BAMF

How many movies have we seen in which the hero is a male character with the same awesome qualities as that female character you speak about ? It's the same fantasy routine whether it's a man or a woman.
You have to put it into the context of "Star Wars"...
A huge part of the plot of all the films is how hard it is learn to become a Jedi or a Sith, to learn how to master the force.
That's why I'm calling it feminist propaganda. "The Force Awakens" has almost a subliminal message IMHO, the female didn't need to do what the males did. Again, it's the basis of feminism today in my opinion.
And, outside of superhero films and silly movies such as the James Bond films, I can't think of a movie where a character is like what you're describing. I mean, if "Star Wars" under Disney is going to be a bunch of silly movies like the James Bond films, that's a soul-crushing disappointment to me personally. It looks like it is going in that direction though.
