Heroic Hotness: Our Top Geek Crushes

Topless Robot recently dedicated a post to the 11 heroes geeky girls want to date, but who are also probably toxic — Batman, James T. Kirk, and such. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, that got us thinking about the crush-worthy characters who set our hearts aflutter. While some of them probably wouldn’t be the most reliable romantic companions, they’d certainly be memorable. I’ve always tended toward good guys in real life, but as long as we’re fantasizing, I’m gonna get this party started with:

Han Solo: The Scoundrel

Harrison Ford was never sexier than when he was playing the rascally, fast-talking smuggler with a blaster on his hip. Han is basically every charming, handsome bastard you’ve ever known and loved. He isn’t the type to call the next day, but when he shows up on your doorstep unannounced with a sly grin, well, you know you’re gonna let him in. Just ask Princess Leia, whose frosty facade Han melted like a blowtorch. You know that scene in The Empire Strikes Back where he backs her up against a wall, moves in real close, and says, “You like me because I’m a scoundrel.”? Talk about a disturbance in The Force! If loving Han is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
