Top 10 Best Female Superheroes


The Top TenXW

1Wonder Woman

By far the best. The only true top tier female lead in comics. Along with Batman and Superman, she completes the trinity of DC comics. She's also willing to go that next step and kill when she feels its for the greater good which sets her apart from the other mainstream good guys.

She has the respect of everyone in the DC universe, because she is an excellent fighter with superb reflexes and a strong will. She is stubborn, very compasionate, a diplomat, but also a warrior who understands that there are times when that final step must be taken. She is the most beautiful woman in the DC universe, having been blessed by her gods, and she is a princess (of the Amazons), which makes her very graceful and poised. And to quote The Bluebeattle: "Everyone loves Diana. Even Batman. "

No offense to all the others, but wonder women is in a class by herself. It's not just her powers, she's got staying power as the base other female super heroes were built on. She even survived the period when men freaked out over the womens lib movement and took away her powers. Growing up in the 80's I didn't read comic books but, I and every other kid knew who she was. Now I know of lots of other female super heroes, but they still don't compare to Wonder Woman.

She is compassionate.

2Black Widow

She is much stronger than you think- just because she doesn't have super powers, it doesn't make her weak. Her skills are far better, far more realistic than others. Heroes like superwoman and invisible woman were born with their skills. The Black Widow had to train hard to be able to get her awesome skills! She works harder than other female superheroes and deserves to be on my top 5 superheroes list!

She has been through the most than any other of these female characters. Wonder Woman was born a goddess, with all the riches and powers, whilst Natasha was raised with a hard-core Russian agency where it's kill or be killed at the age of seven. Wonder Woman has a whip/lasso thing that she can wave around, but Natasha fights with anything she can get her hands on. Black Widow has experienced all the people around her die, and her sadness and anger is too much that she cannot even cry anymore. But Wonder Woman? No, it's all sunshine and daisies around her friends and family.
Natasha has been through the most and has suffered the most, trained the most and probably will last the longest in a battle, Natalia deserves to be number 1, 100%.

Truly one of the only women on this list who had to work hard to find her place in the world, despite being told she didn't even have one.

She has excellent physical strength, charm, and agility. She's hardcore, yet she opens up occasionally. She's been through so much, but she still stands strong. She works hard for what she has. She's committed to her duty and stands tall when she's weakest. She's humble and modest and has her regrets and flaws, but she's the most realistic hero of them all.

And that's why she deserved YOUR vote.

She's so cute because she's played by a cute actress. - Metts

3StarfireStarfire is the name of several fictional comic book characters appearing in books published by DC Comics.

She has super strength and laser eyes and she is very beautiful the Teen Titans cartoon is awesome (teen titans go isn't) and the comic she is kind and she dates Nightwing she is gonna get into a fight with Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) since they both love Nightwing

While the New 52 didn't do anything good for her character. I still love her. Especially her in the Teen Titan comics and her in the Teen Titan cartoon (not Teen Titans Go). Her powers are pretty cool, but I love that she's kind and naive.

Starfire should certainly be on this list. Certainly higher than some on this list. Her new comic book solo series is testimony of her popularity. - WonderMan

She looks beautiful

4Super Girl

She is loving kind woman even if her boss cat grant is mean to her she still stays hole we all love her she is brave kind and a loving to every one she is a good role model to all young girls like myself because of her I am a brave and loving girl so THANK YOU SO MUCH

Yap finally I see a true supergirl fan, many people say supergirl is only the female version of superman and not hot well that's what they r saying because they may like black canary or zatanna more. Cause supergirl was very pretty and hot in the superman classic series, may be not so hot in the old 90s supergirl comics but still pretty. I have a krush on the supermam/batman apokalypse kara were she is hot, se.X.. ,cute, pretty, beautiful and her voice is cute and of course superman unbound kara also cool. Well actual supergirl fans will love her and I know the number of the supergirl or kara fans are thaT HIGH MANY CANNOT IMAGINE.

When Michael Turner created Supergirl in one of the DC Comics stories, she's looks sizzling hot and she's look really cute including her face and outfit!

She is the best and better then all the rest

5StormStorm (Ororo Munroe) is a mutant superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. Her first appearance was in Giant-Size X-Men #1 in 1975 and was created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Her main super power is weather manipulation.

She can manipulate all forms of weather, can manipulte solar winds and the weather on other planets. She can also channel ambient electromagnetism through her body to generate electric blasts meaning that she doesn't need an environment to manipulate and use electricity. She can flash freeze people and objects and can turn normal rain in acid rain or fog into toxic fog. Storm has AMAZING control over air that she can manipulate the air in a person's lungs and manipulate the pressure in someone's ear to cause intense pain. She can also bend light to make her partially or completely invisible. Storm also has the ability to control solar storms, solar winds, ocean currents, and the electromagnetic field. She can also breathe underwater by seperating water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen via electrolysis. Storm can detect kinetic, thermal, and electromagnetic energy from weather phenomena and bend this energy to her will. Storm can cause devastating hurricanes, blizzards, tornadoes, ...more

Hello? Goddess of weather? Extremely powerful manipulator, who against popular belief can do more than just control the weather, such as ocean currents and galactic storms. defeated as many enemies as wonder women but has never taken a life. Dam sexy and knows right from wrong- amazing strength of spirit.

She is the one of the most unique and intriguing character in the marvel comics. Storm is a very compassionate and powerful character who could be compared to a goddess. In addition, she was drawn very beautifully and she could easily take down all the other characters on this list by her personality, looks and powers.

She's My Mom do not think I am crazy

6Invisible WomanInvisible Woman is a female superhero who is a part of Marvel's Fantastic Four. Her powers include invisibility, cosmic rays, invisible force field, and more.

Love her. Immune to psychic attacks she is stealthy she can fly she can use her force fields for super strength she can fight she is good looking don't mess with her you might get an invisible kick in the nuts. With enough concentration she could beat Phoenix! Best super hero ever!

Many people don't realize her power strength is directly related to her confidence. She could also have enough control over her force fields as to she can prohibit certain things from entering, or she could expand it to make an object implode.

Invisible woman is not immune to psychic attacks

I love her power she is the basic marvel heroine

7ZatannaZatanna Zatara is a fictional character, a comic book superheroine in the DC Comics universe. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Murphy Anderson, Zatanna first appeared in Hawkman #4.

Something a lot of people don't realize is that she could kill superman and batman with 4 backward words. She is super powerful. Unlike black canary, if she can't speak, she can use her blood and is more powerful than either of her parents.

Just watch Young Justice and then tell me you don't like her

Play injustice and then try to say shes not the best!

She is half demon, half human. She can teleport, shoot beams of dark magic, destroy universes. Not to mention she is the daughter of the great Trigon

Come on! Raven is awesome! Have you not seen Teen Titans (not teen titans go, it doesn't even deserve to be capitalized)? She is half demon! AWESOME!

She's so cool! She is like my favorite titan ever! She may not be as cool I'm teen titans go, but still amazing!

Raven should be number 1, her powers are almost unlimited, she could beat Wonder Woman with her powers, she's half demon people!

9Jean GreyJean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

She's beautiful, She's kind and She's one of the most powerful beings of the universe. Plus, telekinesis is the best power, EVER.

Jean grey can take down all of the ladies on this list plus she is very beautiful

Jean grey is the second most powerful telepath plus she has telekinesis also the phoenix force has technically become jeans power

I think jean grey is very kind and powerful and not to mention very beautiful

10Black CanaryBlack Canary is a fictional superheroine in comic books published by DC Comics. Created by the writer-artist team of Robert Kanigher and Carmine Infantino, the character debuted in Flash Comics #86.

Black canary should be somewhere in the top 4. She is amazing and better then Black widow.

Black widow is the black canary of marvel

Black Canary is awesome! If black widow is awesome, so is canary. She is like the black widow of the D&C universe, in fighting. She can sonic scream for one thing, for another have you not seen those hands in action? That girl can punch!

11Hawk GirlHawkgirl is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, and was one of the first female superheroes.

Among all the girls she's one of the most strongest and brave she's not that flirt like the others even thou she had a beautiful Aura.

She was one of my favorite superheroes as a kid before I liked Raven. It was so cool this past year to see her portrayed in a totally different way on legends than she was in the justice league.

Hawk girl ROCKS, but not Wonder Woman. Why; Hawk girl isn't stupid at almost EVERYTHING unlike Diana. Plus- Hawk Girl would & could win against Wonder Woman, the same goes with Cat Woman!

Hawk girl was apart of the justice league, everybody talks about her being the only justice league female but what about hawk girl?

12Ms. MarvelMs. Marvel is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The only reason why she is not higher up is because she doesn't have any movies. Most people know in the comic world, she is as tough as can be.

She's so sexy and pretty but he has very dangerous kree energy to defeat anyone

She's has to be the best superhero girl of all time. She needs to be number one

I just think she's awesome

She's funny, she's vivacious, she's intelligent, she's mighty and she's got a beautiful heart... Something intrinsic about She Hulk speaks to a lot of girls- you know, behind all the dumb hyper-sexualization (some of it is actually just who she is, and some of it is misogyny in the comic industry). The people writing for her have never understood who and what the character clearly is and it's a real shame because she's probably one of Marvel's most iconic women in addition to being the answer to 'wonder woman' as one of the DC big 3... She's not just some princess of justice, but a flawed, red blooded woman with an impeccable brain and a sense of humor to match. And something about that makes her seem so real.

Smart, funny, strong, not afraid of her sexuality... She-Hulk is a role model!

What only 31 she should be at least in the top 5!

To me she is cool and strong

15Scarlet WitchThe Scarlet Witch is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

She should be #1 guys! Her past was truly messed up. In the comics, she once got upset so badly that she altered the universe. Scarlet witch is humble and in the movies so far has shown strength and is actually scared of hurting anyone with her powers. She understands how it is to lose everything, be treated like an incompetent child, and to feel as if she is a danger to society. Everyone looks at her with either fear or interest. So it gets to her head. The powers she possesses is really dangerous, and she knows this so she tries to control it. Be careful though. You tick her off, your dead simple as that.

Scarlet witch is very unique. She is troubled by her powers and was/is scared of herself. It was interesting to read and see how her character developed within the comics. Scarlet witch is a bridge between the avengers and the xmen, and even though she started out as a villain she found her way and became one of the most iconic heroes. Her powers are very intriguing and I am very disappointed that marvel has ruined her character. I think that they definitely should fix her character so that she could be loved by fans all over the world again. (I think she should have been ranked higher)

Worst superhero ever! I mean she would be better if another girl played her in the movie. I mean, we all know that the only reason that girl got the part is because she was Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's sister. The character... Eh, still unrealistic. But the actress... Plain out rigged and horrible. But admit it, the character has no REAL powers.

She should be number one

16CatwomanCatwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

catwoman is the perfect anti hero. Not fully good not fully bad. She's 3 dimensional character with sex appeal as well as strong physical power. Shes like a classic femme fatale beautiful but she can hurt a man too. Plus she and batman are my fav comic book pairing ever. hope shes in the 3rd Chris Nolan's Batman film.

I agree, Catwoman is awesome! In my opinion she's one of the closest female superheroes that are like humans. She has a badass look and an attitude that kills. She uses that whip like she was born with it, and she can even crawl on walls. She can jump from high ground and still land on her feet. If she were a real person, we'd be the best of friends. I honestly love Catwoman and I'm a girl. But hey that's just my opinion.

Catwoman is sick, it's like if you blended together Wolverine and Indiana Jones and then made it pretty you would get Catwoman, she one of my VERY favorite comic book heroes.

Let's all admit it she where's a nappy at night

She is basically a copy of supergirl just more mature

I love her comics with Harley Quinn this girl is awesome

Power Girl deserves her own movie.

19Rogue from X-Men

She's the most believable super heroine in the X-men. She used to be a villain, is haunted by the fact that she can't touch anyone (or she could kill them) and is in love with Gambit. What's not to love.

She takes people's powers away and then she gains them. She could be blog and Cyclops at the same time.

Rouge should be number one cause she can take any power...

Rogue is amazing she can defeat Wonder Woman easily

20Phoenix (X Men)

Why the hell is phoenix at 10 as She should be at 1
She is one of the most powerful beings in the universe and could wipe out any other hero, so am I wrong here?

Phoenix should be #1! She can't be killed & she has the strongest powers! She is a bad ass!

Phoenix is the best ever way better than wonder woman phoenix would burn her ass off

Phoenix is one of the most powerful characters in the marvel comics. Moreover, phoenix has unlimited powers and is badass!
