What do Aragorn, Elle Woods and Babe have in common?

Fortune magazine, as part of a package this month on World’s Greatest Leaders, has identified the top 20 leaders who just happen to be fictional characters in movies, and it’s a surprisingly fun read. Andrew Shepherd (Michael Douglas) of “The American President” holds the top spot, not unexpectedly; just behind him is Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and Babe, the pig with an “unprejudiced heart.” Rounding out the top ten: Captain Kirk from “Star Trek,” Captain Miller from “Saving Private Ryan ,” Crysta from “FernGully: The Last Rainforest,” Danny Ocean from “Ocean’s Eleven,” Dumbledore from the “Harry Potter” series, Elle Woods from “Legally Blonde,” and Ellen Ripley from “Alien.” Not bad, Fortune, but Crysta before Dumbledore? Really?
