The Valiant Captain N series featured the Amazonian bounty hunter Samus Aran, and even explained where her powersuit came from. 

…except that isn’t where her suit came from. Her suit came from the Chozo and is part of her. She activates it biologically.

Very true! 

The comics went with a different explanation, detailed in full on this page. Note that Samus Aran was always called a “bounty hunter,” but the implication in the early games was less that she was a freelance manhunter and more of a “Western sheriff” type mixed with a troubleshooter, alone, and with a lot of latitude to interpret things on the frontier. So her being a cop in the comics does not come from absolute left field.

(It’s no wonder they’d call Bob Layton, maybe the single most important Iron Man creator of the past 4 decades besides Stan Lee, to do this one. He had a feel for technology and the future. And a reminder that Jim Shooter’s Valiant Publishing had a few “big guns” on their side when they did their Nintendo licensed comics and pro wrestling licensed comics.)

Also, note that while recent games have made Samus Aran average height, the original games listed her as a statuesque 6′3″, and the Valiant comics went with that as well; she’s visibly bigger than everyone else.
