Top 10 Best Female Superheroes


The Top Ten

1 Wonder Woman Wonder Woman Wonder Woman is a fictional superhero created by William Moulton Marston and Harry G. Peter, appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character is a founding member of the Justice League, a goddess, and Ambassador-at-Large of the Amazon people. In her homeland, the island nation more.

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 got me interested in superhero. She is a great role model. - lilyflower

2 Black Widow Black Widow Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, most known as Natasha Romanoff or the Black Widow, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is one of the most talented spies and assassins in the entire world and is a founding member of the Avengers. The character was created more.

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.

I could kick this chick's ass she needs to go back to the kitchen lmao

3 Starfire Starfire Starfire 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

Maybe she is powerful but she is not a good role model - Sugarcubecorner

4 Raven

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

Let's be real, Raven deserves to be in top 3. Her power is really cool and amazing. Also, she's beautiful inside and outside - smill

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!

5 Storm Storm Storm (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.

6 Super Girl Super Girl Supergirl is the superhero name of Kara Zor-El, cousin to Superman. She was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino in 1959, and she first appeared in Action Comics, in whose first issue Superman himself was introduced. more.

Superman is awesome, but Supergirl has always been more relatable than him. Back when she was created, Superman was a veteran, mature hero and a paragon. However Supergirl was younger, ergo more inexperienced and more inmature. Even somewhat naive. She was optimistic and hopeful, but also impatient, short-tempered and aggressive when provoked. She didn't put up with fools or bullies and could be pretty snarky. Every so often she messed up and failed, and had to learn from her mistakes. Back in the day, Superman wasn't allowed to fail.

Kara also grew up among Kryptonians. She remembers a culture and a society which are gone forever, and she remembers what being a powerless, ordinary person is like. She struggles to adapt to her new home, fit in with humans and be a hero even though she often wishes she was normal.

Supergirl is hot-blooded, optimistic, determined, protective from her loved ones and fierce in battle. And she is awesome.

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.

Best than superman, he said so himself

7 Jean Grey Jean Grey Jean Grey, or Jean Grey-Summers, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character has been known under the aliases Marvel Girl, Phoenix, and Dark Phoenix. more.

I don't like Jean Grey, but I also don't hate her. She's just overrated and cheated on Scott (Cyclops) with Wolverine. It looks like Jean can use her powers to murder anyone she wants and still gets loved by others, especially by every single males who are deceived by her looks.

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

I like her because she is beautiful and have telekinesis

8 Black Canary Black Canary Black 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.

Nah! Natasha is way better and Hotter too!

Okay, where do I begin…Black Canary is the BEST DC superheroine EVER, and to prove it I'm gonna compare her to her Marvel clone, black widow which is somehow in second place on this list. By the way, black widow is okay. They barely have any superheroines in marvel any way, and of those black widow is probably one of the best compared to some other superheroines, at least she is much better than a girl who can shrink herself to the size of a germ. Anyway, Black Canary has a superpower. And it is unique too. Can you think of any other superheroes male or female dc or marvel that have the power of being loud? And she makes it look cool too. Black widow on the other hand is a total freak who is only in the avengers because she is in love with the hulk. And she doesn't even trust her own team and she keeps secerets from them. Black canary on the other hand is epic and is on the team because of her TALENT not her love interests. Of course green arrow does have a bit of a crush on black ...more - Warriorcats

Black widow is the black canary of marvel

I feel like she's often overlooked despite her cool power and awesome abilities (and dat ass

9 Scarlet Witch Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff, also known as the Scarlet Witch, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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.

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.

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)

She can destroy INFINITY STONES! Need I say more?
Get real, idiots!

10 Zatanna Zatanna Zatanna 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

She can do anything with magic

Wasn't she that bitch who kicked Raven out of the Justice League?

The Contenders

11 Invisible Woman Invisible Woman Invisible 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.

She can knock out all superheroes in this list just by hitting them when invisible

It's the boobs,isn't it?

12 Bat Girl Bat Girl

She is pretty, has awesome connections (Batman), and can kick some series butt.

She is my favourite superhero. She got shot, and still found a way to fight crime. Whilst most of the other superheroes would stop the fight, she powered through, and has earned the respect of everybody in the DC universe

Love her she can kick ass like there is no tomorrow

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

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 an original character. Though still over sexualized, Catwoman is the only female character that actually uses her physical and mental abilities to their full human potential. She is purposely the female mirror to Batman and, in my mind, the second best female hero to Wonder Woman ( the female mirror to Superman).

She's pretty, dangerous and catty

14 Hawk Girl Hawk Girl Hawkgirl 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 is not only so cool but so relatable one of my heroes since I was a kid and always looked up to me. she teaches girls to be strong and man have u seen that mace?

15 She-Hulk She-Hulk She-Hulk is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema, she first appeared in Savage She-Hulk #1.

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.

Cousin of Bruce banner who gave her a transfusion of his blood which has. Gamma radiation to transform her to become the she hulk.

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

An amazing superhero that is super incredible and awesome

What rogue is already on page 1

She is my twin sister favorite


17 Troia

To be honest I prefer the Titans to the League. They're better than them but just get pushed down a lot so the League can shine through as always.

cool name

Donna Troy hasn't a origin but she has a future. Wonder Girl, Darkstar and Troia. She's beautiful and pretty strong. I love her.

18 Rogue 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

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

Is the best and more powerful than Wonder Woman as she is indestructible as bullets bounce off her and she has taken punches from the hulk and it did not move her. She can also absorb energy making her stronger and there is no cap for this. She can also go into binary in which she is almost all powerful.

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

Once Avengers 4 comes out, shes so gonna be Top 5, her strenght is impossibly unmatched

Jennifer Garner was the best Elektra the world will ever see. She really gave her heart and soul to the character. It was the plot that didn't work out. But, god damn.. Garner was so fine.

Incredible ninja skills, has toughness on the level of daredevil

33 Jessica Jones Jessica Jones Jessica Campbell Jones Cage is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Marvel's Jessica Jones is certainly a bit darker than some other superhero characters. She gained her superhero strength through a car accident with also killed her entire family. The new show can be seen as an anecdote for abusive relationships as Jessica has to escape and eventually overcome a mind controlling villain who has an unhealthy obsession over Jessica. While a bit rough around the edges, she cares deeply for those close to her and goes to great lengths to protect her loved ones.

Not many characters (female or otherwise) had to go through more than she did. If a hero I sosmeone who should overcome their weaknesses to become a better person a and use their strength to help others, there is no better example than Jessica Jones.

That's Spider-Woman's life, oh, did I mention she is trying to escape her family ties to Hydra? Talk about bad luck.

All around bad ass and had a wicked cartoon back in the day!

Spider Woman deserves her own modern cartoon or movie. Spider man gets so much recognition so she deserves it too.

Now Spider Woman is & always will be one of my very favorite & I tried to purchase as many of her comic books as I could & keep them secure along with Ms. Marvel :O)
