Facts about Aeon Flux
Aeon Flux Biography
The animated anti-hero Aeon Flux debuted in 1991 as a feature on MTV’s cartoon series Liquid Television.
Created by Peter Chung, Aeon Flux is a female assassin whose futuristic espionage adventures set records for cartoon body counts. Long-legged, wasp-waisted and spidery, she wears a skimpy chastity belt, disregarding its traditional purpose in the extreme. With overtones of fetishism and sado-masochism, the Aeon Flux vibe is meant to be sexy, cool and often ruthless.
The original cartoon spawned a 2005 live-action film, Aeon Flux, starring Charlize Theron in the title role.
Variety reported in February 2004 that Charlize Theron was being paid $10 million to star in the Aeon Flux feature. Theron followed in the bootsteps of Angelina Jolie, who played animated heroine Lara Croft in two Tomb Raider films.
