Top 10 Best Female Superheroes

The Top Ten
1 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 of Themyscira, her official title is Princess Diana of Themyscira, Daughter of Hippolyta. When blending into the society outside of her homeland, she adopts her civilian identity Diana Prince. The character is also referred to by such epithets as the "Amazing Amazon", the "Spirit of Truth", "Themyscira's Champion", the "God-Killer", and the "Goddess of Love and War". In the DC Cinematic Universe, more.

I love Wonder Woman! She is kind, physically strong, cultured, intelligent, multilingual, infinitely brave, just, and always ... wonderful! She makes mistakes and learns from them, despite what some may say about her "never messing up" or being "too powerful". She is powerful because of her unique, rigorous training on Themysceria and experience in battle. I love how her emotional and loving sides are displayed in addition to her physical strength, because emotions are not weaknesses, they should be honored because they show who we are. A lot of the time, "strong" characters are displayed as emotionally cold/emotionless almost to the point of being devoid of a personality, and Wonder Woman really takes a stand against this harmful portrayal of people. She openly shows a full range of emotions, from giddiness to heartbreak to rage to hope to defeat. How could anyone not adore her?

The concept of Wonder Woman is amazing. Without doubt she is recognized as the first real super heroine of the comics above any on this list. If I was in trouble I would not question that I will be safe with Wonder Woman around. Wonder Woman has been interpreted by writers and artists in many ways: powerful or human, immortal or mortal, warrior or pacifist, able to fly or unable to fly, and so on. Despite her different interpretations, her essence as a force for good, her costume that has remained iconic, establishes that Wonder Woman is super-heroine number one!

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 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. "

2 Black Widow Natalia Alianovna Romanova, 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 by Stan Lee, Jae Lee, Don Heck, Paul Jenkins, and Don Rico, and is poratrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Wonder Woman is said to be a "female icon" but when you think about it, she's not. She never had to endure what Black Widow did, who was trained practically since birth(4 or 5). She never had to make up for her past mistakes, "the red in my ledger". She was never on the path of redemption, regretting everything. She never felt what it was like to be unmade and forced to do things she couldn't undo, no matter what. But that is what makes Black Widow relatable while WW is not. Natasha has had her childhood taken from her, seen the few people she was allowed to love ripped from her and still fights to be better.

Wonder Woman's got NOTHING on her.

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.

The fact that she has no superpowers and is just under WONDER WOMAN (who is considered the greatest female superhero ever-I beg to differ, but whatever) really says something. All these other superheroines need a power to be interesting, but she doesn't need anything other than her amazing skill and sheer brilliance as one the world's greatest assassins and spy. The fact that she is one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and has just as much value to the team as anyone else is amazing. Too bad Marvel wasted and underused such a brilliantly complex character. Her death in A:E was downright disrespectful. They might as well have spit on her grave. Oh, wait. Marvel didn't even think she was important enough to merit one. And before you argue that her death was "noble and brave", please read on the fridging trope sadly too common in the superhero genre. They insinuated that Clint's life was more important just because he had family and she didn't (Age of Ultron, anyone? ), blatantly ignoring the ...more

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

Best female hero ever. She is perfect. She an alien but still fights and risks her life for this planet. She is so powerful and beautiful. I hate wonder woman I don't know why she is on number 1. I love her,she the best she so kind and sweet and she shows her real self. Where will someone find a girl like her. She is most unique on this list. She is so innocent and cute like a kitty

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.

I love how she says words! The ways she says things is adorable. I love superheroes that are from different planets!

4 Raven Raven is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26, and was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez.

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.

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 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

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

5 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 was definitely an integral part of why we watched d X-Men cartoons and read the comics. We used to all have crushes on her. The Movies ruined the character. She's more than a sex symbol. She's thoughtful, very kind, and not so rigid. She makes some bad ass comments in most of her fights and is good at mental taunting. Her kindness is not faked like most comic characters on the list. I think the movies missed all these qualities no wonder she's just known as one of the minority Representatives in comic movies. I think she's more than that.

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

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 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. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963). Famke Janssen portrayed the character in five installments of the X-Men films. Sophie Turner portrays a younger version in the 2016 film X-Men: Apocalypse. Turner will return to portray the character as well as her alternate personality the Phoenix in the 2019 film Dark Phoenix.

Wonder Woman and Black Widow are both very impressive but Jean Grey is at another level. She isn't into physicality, though she can tear people apart with her incredible mind. Watch X-Men 3, the only who one who could get close enough to stop her, was the one she truly loved. Everybody else, watch out!

Jean grey is really powerful. She can use telekinesis, which is really useful when she has to reach faraway stuff. She can make an invisible barrier-shield, and her mindpower is really strong, sensing other people's thoughts. She can even beat Professor Xavier, who is really powerul and has similar powers to Jean, and plus, she's really pretty and rational enough to date Scott summers.

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.

Why is phoenix number 9? She could burn all the other heroes asses right off! She should be number 1 here! P.S The phoenix force is an ancient space entity that possessed Jean Grey, it's not in inner power.

7 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.

Zatanna is so powerful! She is also very beautiful

Best heroine ever

8 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 is thought to be one of the most powerful people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and can control things with her mind. Her powers are a result of experiments by Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, who used Loki’s scepter to give her and her brother Pietro Maximoff AKA Quicksilver, their powers. Her first appearance was against the Avengers during Avengers: Age Of Ultron. She then started serving Ultron before switching teams with her brother and joining the Avengers. She was part of the 50% more.

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)

I mean she has had the WORST life on earth, losing so much, and she still manages to kick ass an be awesome and use her incredible powers for the greater good! She is compassionate yet just. Even when her life made her as crazy as it, she still brought herself up and helped herself get better. And she cares very much for her loved ones, like Pietro and Vision. And of course her telekinesis, energy manipulation, probability manipulation(comics), telepathic resistance, teleportation, Magic, and mental manipulation/telepathy(MCU), makes her able to defeat about any other female character you put her up against, comics or MCU.

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.

9 Bat Girl

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

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

I don't know which batgirl this is talking about but they are all great so...

She is my favourite super girl and by far the sexiest!

10 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. Kara Zor-El's Supergirl has been adapted into various media, including television and film, having being played by Helen Slater, Laura Vandervoort, and most recently Melissa Benoist in the Arrowverse.

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.

Remember... This is SUPERGIRL... She is literally a female Superman. Ever heard of superman? Supergirl's power is extreme, and, unlike Superman, she doesn't hold back most of the time. She could best almost anyone in a fight. Super strength, speed, intellect, flight, heat vision, x-ray vision, microscopic vision... ANYTHING Superman has, Supergirl has. That makes her pretty great.

That is a horrid photo of supergirl! Supergirl in the T.V. show is amazing! She is a good friend, girlfriend, sister, daughter, feminist, and employee. She stands up for what she believes in, and on top of all of that, is a badass!

She batgirl and Wonder Woman are my favorite female hero's and also supergirl has super strength heat vision lazer eyes super speed flying ice breath (I think not to sure) and can breath in space! Sure she's not amused to kryponite but still!

The Contenders
11 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.

She down-right chooses to not use her ability out of fear of hurting someone. It was a curse placed on her mother that carried over. Her scream can literally, not figuratively, knock down skyscrapers with her canary cry.

I think that the black canary should yes be in the top 5 because the black widow is just the knockoff versions of the black canary. I personally think the white canary is better but they where the same person untill Sara Lance died but that's ok

Black Canary has the best story in the whole DC universe for women. She is amazing and can beat everyone...Reminds me of agent Carter. Should be 3rd

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

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

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).

Catwoman is basically EVERYTHING in one. She's mysterious, like Batman. But she's sly and "smirky" in a way that draws you in. It's like there's this certain charisma surrounding her that you can't find anywhere else, like a cat.

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.

13 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 is sooo awesome between her awesome super powers and great people skill plus her personality I say she is far better than everybody else!

She is awesome! How can you kill someone you can't see?

14 Rogue (X-Men) Rogue is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men. Was created by Chris Claremont And Michael Golden. In the X-Men film series, she is portrayed by Anna Paquin.

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.

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

Mystique's daughter and, by extent, Nightcrawler's sister... 'enough said.

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

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.

Among all the girls, she's one of the strongest and bravest. She's not that flirt like the others even though she had a beautiful Aura.

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

Hawkgirl is awesome! Her weapon, her flight, her strength...

16 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.

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.

Soon we will know much more about her with her Disney plus series.

I'm intrigued to know this character since I've read how popular she is with the comic book readers.

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!

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

She deserves much, much, higher. She has extraordinary powers, she's a good role model, she had a good role in the movie, but most of all she is completely unbeatable. She could beat all the top ten on the list easily, though Jean Grey and Scarlet Witch could give her a run for her money.

I could see this climbing up to the top 3 once her movie comes out. I mean, she is at 48! come on!

She's just great!

I love to watch all the superheros stuff as I like wonder woman.

18 Wonder Girl

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.

19 Harley Quinn Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.

Jokers sidekick and sometimes girlfriend, just as crazy as him but female.

If Harley Quinn is considered a super hero, the so is her boyfriend the Joker.

Fun fact: the character didn't debut in comics, but in an animated series.

She rids a motorcycle and always tries to kill Robbin!

20 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.

Incredible ninja skills, has toughness on the level of daredevil

21 Kitty Pryde Katherine Anne "Kitty" Pryde is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

She's down to earth but not boring. She's grown up over the course of her career as an X-Men too and that's just fun to watch.

22 Ms. Marvel / Kamala Khan Ms. Marvel, also known as Kamala Khan, is a fictional superhero appearing in American 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.

She is. But I'm talking about Davners not whoever the heck they replaced her with. She is a former Air Force Pilot and after being exposed to Kree energy became what I like to think of as a perfect rival of Moonstone.

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.

I have loved Ms. Marvel since she came on the Superlady line-up :O) Her comic books where fantastic & very sexy too..I have the original collection of comic books safe keeping :O)

23 Emma Frost Emma Grace Frost is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, most commonly in association with the X-Men . The character first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #129 (January 1980), and was created by writer Chris Claremont and artist/co-writer John Byrne . Emma Frost, also known as the White Queen, has evolved from a supervillain and foe of the X-Men, to becoming a superhero and one of the X-Men's most central members and leaders .

Frost belongs to a subspecies of humanity called mutants, who are born with superhuman abilities . She is an urbane telepath with a well-noted, dry wit .
Powers: more.

I prefer her as a Super Villain but anyway, she is the best female Super Hero and even the best Super Hero at all. She is smart, rich, attractive, exeptionally intelligent, can switch her gorgous body into diamond form and masters telepathy as nobodyelse.

She's sexy, smart and powerful. How can you not love her?

I wish I could turn my whole body into diamond! Wow!

Emma frost turned evil

24 Power Girl Power Girl, also known as Kara and Karen Starr, is a fictional DC Comics superheroine, making her first appearance in All Star Comics #58.

I hope they think about giving this girl a movie.

Power Girl deserves her own movie.

Close that gap 666

Power Girls costume is terrific but I only wish her creator had her in a mask :O(

25 Squirrel Girl

She's cute in a kawaii way and she brings the aspects of childhood into super heroes! Yay for her!
