Top 10 Best Female Superheroes

The Top Ten
1 Wonder Woman (DC Comics) 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

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 Themyscira and her 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 or emotionless, almost to the point of being devoid of a personality. 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?

2 Black Widow (Marvel Comics) 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... read more

Many consider Wonder Woman a "female icon," but when compared to Black Widow, she seems less deserving of that title. Unlike Natasha, who was trained from a very young age (around four or five), Wonder Woman did not have to overcome a troubled past. She never had to atone for her mistakes, as Black Widow does with "the red in my ledger." Wonder Woman did not walk a path of redemption, filled with regret and the burden of actions that could not be undone.

This path of hardship makes Black Widow a more relatable character. Natasha's childhood was stolen from her. She watched as the few people she was allowed to love were torn away from her, yet she still strives to be better. In comparison, Wonder Woman falls short. She simply cannot match the depth of character and experience that Black Widow embodies.

3 Starfire (DC Comics) 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's 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 number 1. I love her. She's the best. She's so kind and sweet and shows her real self. Where will someone find a girl like her? She is the 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. I particularly enjoy her in the Teen Titan comics and in the Teen Titan cartoon (not Teen Titans Go). Her powers are pretty cool, but I love that she's kind and naive.

4 Raven (DC Comics) 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 PĂ©rez.

What is Raven doing at number 4? I'm not sexist, but I don't like most girl superheroes. Not because of their gender, but 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, and destroy universes. Not to mention, she is the daughter of the great Trigon.

5 Storm (Marvel Comics) 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 Starfire and deserves a top 3 spot. She has already beaten Wonder Woman, who sits at #1. Storm's lightning was powerful enough to knock out the Silver Surfer. She beat Cyclops even without her powers. She is a brave, strong, and extremely attractive hero. She is also a goddess and the wife of Black Panther, as well as the queen of the most advanced civilization on Marvel Earth, Wakanda. She is funny, caring, sweet, mature, and cool.

The reason why other heroes are above her is because they have greater representation on TV, 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 likely have double her current number of fans.

6 Zatanna (DC Comics) 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 four 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.

7 Jean Grey (Marvel Comics) 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... read more

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 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 create an invisible barrier-shield, and her mind power is really strong, sensing other people's thoughts. She can even beat Professor Xavier, who is really powerful and has similar powers to Jean. Plus, she's really pretty and rational enough to date Scott Summers.

8 Scarlet Witch (Marvel Comics) 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... read more

She should be #1, guys! Her past was truly messed up. In the comics, she once got so upset that she altered the universe. Scarlet Witch is humble, and in the movies so far, she has shown strength and is actually scared of hurting anyone with her powers.

She understands what it's like 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 are really dangerous, and she knows this, so she tries to control them. Be careful, though. If you tick her off, you're dead, simple as that.

9 Batgirl (DC Comics)

She is my favorite superhero. She got shot and still found a way to fight crime. Whilst most other superheroes would stop fighting, 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 serious butt.

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

10 Supergirl (DC Comics) 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... read 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, thus more inexperienced and more immature, 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 of her loved ones, and fierce in battle. And she is awesome.

The Contenders
11 Black Canary (DC Comics) 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 outright chooses not to 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 Black Canary should definitely be in the top 5 because Black Widow is just a knockoff version of Black Canary. I personally think White Canary is better, but they were the same person until Sara Lance died, but that's okay.

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

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


Catwoman has been featured in many media adaptations related to Batman. Actresses Julie Newmar, Lee Meriwether, and Eartha Kitt introduced her to... read more

I agree, Catwoman is awesome! In my opinion, she's one of the closest female superheroes to humans. She has a badass look and an attitude that kills. She uses that whip as if 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.

13 Invisible Woman (Marvel Comics) 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, and 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 superhero 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 to prohibit certain things from entering, or she could expand it to make an object implode.

14 Rogue (Marvel Comics) 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 superheroine 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?

Rogue is just plain badass. If badass could be a person, it would be Rogue. She's funny, she's hot, and 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 gains them. She could be both Blob and Cyclops at the same time.

15 Hawkgirl (DC Comics) 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 flirtatious like the others, even though she has a beautiful aura.

Hawkgirl was a part of the Justice League. Everybody talks about Wonder Woman being the only Justice League female, but what about Hawkgirl?

16 She-Hulk (Marvel Comics) 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.

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 comic book readers.

She is the cousin of Bruce Banner, who gave her a transfusion of his blood, which has gamma radiation. This transformed her into She-Hulk.

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

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

She deserves a much higher ranking. She has extraordinary powers and is a good role model. She played a significant role in the movie. But most of all, she is completely unbeatable. She could easily beat all the top ten on the list, although 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!

18 Wonder Girl (DC Comics)

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

Joker's sidekick and sometimes girlfriend, she is just as crazy as him but female.

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

She rides a motorcycle and always tries to kill Robin!

20 Kitty Pryde (Marvel Comics) 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, and that's just fun to watch.

21 Elektra (Marvel Comics) 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 and toughness on the level of Daredevil.

22 Ms. Marvel / Kamala Khan (Marvel Comics) Ms. Marvel, also known as Kamala Khan, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Ms. Marvel is the best and more powerful than Wonder Woman because she is indestructible. Bullets bounce off her, and she has taken punches from the Hulk without being moved. 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 that she doesn't have any movies. Most people in the comic world know she is as tough as can be.

I have loved Ms. Marvel since she came onto the Superlady line-up. Her comic books were fantastic and very sexy too. I have the original collection of comic books in safekeeping.

23 Emma Frost (Marvel Comics) 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,... read more

I prefer her as a supervillain, but anyway, she is the best female superhero and even the best superhero overall. She is smart, rich, attractive, exceptionally intelligent, can switch her gorgeous body into diamond form, and masters telepathy like nobody else.

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

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

24 Squirrel Girl (Marvel Comics)

She's cute in a kawaii way and brings aspects of childhood into superheroes. Yay for her!

25 Power Girl (DC Comics) 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 consider giving this girl a movie.

Power Girl deserves her own movie.

Power Girl's costume is terrific, but I only wish her creator had given her a mask.
