Veronica Mars is coming back to TV. Now, don't get excited—there are no new episodes in the works. (Kristen Bell is 31 years old at this point, after all.) But this Sunday, fans will be able to stuff themselves with wisecracking teen-sleuth goodness as SOAPnet kicks off its syndication of the series with an 11-hour marathon.

We're so excited to see such a strong female character on television again that we're celebrating by rounding up 15 of the all-time most powerful women on TV, from Mary Richards to Daenerys Targaryen.
