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 ...read 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.

With your first line you sold it. No single Female superhero is as well known as Wonder Woman.

She is the only female superhero considered a pop culture icon. - Sa26

Yes woman kicking ass I like it

Zeus daughter. What do you guys expect?
She's on a different level altogether. - EllenseaFornost

Wonder Woman is my Favorite female DC character ever. I'm not a big fan of superhero's and such, but man Wonder Woman's got some serious skills. Her quick and strong style of fighting is captivating to watch and you got to admit it's pretty cool. Her super powers make her unique but also not too overpowered like SuperMan. It's the perfect balance of cool, powerful, and still vulnerable. - RosalinaX

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 ...read 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!

Black widow and wonder woman are my favorite

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%.

To be honest I think Carol Danvers and Peggy Carter are more powerful, but I love Natasha so much. She's an Avenger for a reason.

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

Cool

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

4 Raven

What is Raven doing in number 4? I'm not sexist, but I don't like most girl superheroes. Not because of their gender, because they're just not interesting. Black Widow isn't interesting, Wonder Woman is okay, and I have no opinion on Starfire. Raven is hilarious, interesting, fun to watch, and ' awesome! Raven is one of my favorite superheroes and characters.

She is awesome. She is the LITERAL daughter of the devil

I love Raven. She is hilarious, she is interesting, she is awesome, and she is hot.

She is the best ( my opinion)

Please make her number 1 she is a good role model amd also KARAMEL!

6 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.

Storm is one of the best female heroes. I feel she should be above Star fire and deserves top 3. She has already beaten Wonder Woman who sits at # 1. Storm's lightening were powerful enough to KO the SILVER SURFER. She beat Cyclops even without her powers. She is a brave, strong and extremely hot hero. She is also a goddess and the wife of Black Panther as well as queen of the most advanced civilization on Marvel earth, Wakanda. She is funny, caring, sweet, mature and cool. The reasons why the other heroes are above her is because they have a great representation on T.V. unlike Storm. Storm's portrayal is influenced by colorism and poor acting. If they were to stay true to the black African original in the comics, she would be having double of her fans now.

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.

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.

I like her because she is beautiful and have telekinesis

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?

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.

She could destroy all the avengers with a flick of her wrists, she could destroy 1Infinity stone while holding off 5 others. I mean, she can literally move things by thinking about it! - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

She almost killed thanos

She is super powerful easily the most powerful superwomen. she uses her emotions to up her game. She has a hard life has every reason to hate Tony but when it comes to saving the world she drops(or mostly drops) that hatred for Tony to save the universe. Some times she needs a pep talk but who doesn't? - Cornbreadk

Even Thanos had to rain fire on her. She's as powerful as heck.

9 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.

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

To be honest I don't really like her as Green Arrow's romantic sidekick. I liked her better as her own character. - ShuhBanggg

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

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

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

Invisible woman is not immune to psychic attacks

13 Rogue from X-Men

Please what is that photo?
Rogue is just plain badass. Is badass could be a person, it would be Rogue. She's funny, she's hot, she has a power that'll suck your life force, she's Nightcrawler's sister and Gambit loves her.

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.

An amazing superhero that is super incredible and awesome

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

I love Catwoman but she is super villain not superhero. - Sa26

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).

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

16 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 the Queen of The hulks - King_Niteli

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.

If she was more feminine but still muscular I’d make it so she couldn’t stand for weeks, her legs would lose balance instantly, the doctors would be confused as to what had happened to her, worlds would die, stars would explode and the universe would never be the same again.

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

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

18 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.

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

Also, Brie Larson is so damn perfect

Shes just awesome!

30 Elektra Elektra Elektra Natchios is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

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.

She needs her own movie!

Incredible ninja skills, has toughness on the level of daredevil

31 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.

40 Spider Woman Spider Woman Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #32, and 50 issues of an ongoing series titled Spider-Woman followed.

Imagine coming back to Earth after being kidnapped by aliens only to find out they where shapshifters and used your face to take over the world. It's now vilified near Hitler levels. 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.

And also the hottest butt on the list.
