She's not kidnapped very often (even if [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy some adaptations]] might make you think otherwise), but when she does, she never stays put. There are even more than a few examples where she saves herself [[BadassInDistress with baseball bats, took fighting lessons no help from ''Comicbook/CaptainAmerica'', and became the most Badass of any Spidey love interest.whatsoever]].

* While the entire plot of ''Film/{{Commando}}'' revolves around John [[ArnoldSchwarzenegger Matrix]] rescuing his kidnapped young daughter, Jenny, as it turns out she must have picked up something from her dad. The second her dad storms the compound and she's not tied up, she's popped a doorknob off the door to her room and rescued herself. She's almost to her dad before the villainous Bennett shows up, but had she not tried to escape earlier, she'd definitely be dead as Bennett had gone looking for her ''precisely'' to kill her.
