I'm sticking with the kill Bill, below for movies but if it was a TV show, the character would be Nikita. That was a wonderful show and she was an amazing actress.

From the 1950s Annie Oakley. A real person with real skills. She got the bad guys. She held down a job. Did not lean or depend on a man. On Amazon

As a little girl, I wanted to be just like Wonder Woman. She’s still cool in my opinion.

The best “strong female characters” are well-written characters who HAPPEN to be female. The problem is Hollywood tries to reverse engineer them and start with a “strong female character” framework and then try to make the character interesting, and I don’t think Hollywood understands how pathetic and transparent of an exercise this is

The bride is a good example of a good one. Ripely from alien. Sarah Connor from terminator off the top of my head

I agree with that assessment, I've found most of the best characters come from years ago, when they weren't trying so hard.

Uma Thurman in Kill Bill is by FAR the greatest female action hero.

I agree. She is so good in that movie.
