Top 10 DC Comics Characters Who Got Pregnant

Comic books usually have our favorite superheroes face insurmountable odds against the villains. They also often touch on different subjects throughout, giving characters more depth and developing stories, such as love, grief, death, and in this case pregnancy. Yes, sometimes our favorite superheroines become pregnant in one of their many comic book storylines, and sometimes it's a heartwarming story, or it makes you wonder what the writers were thinking. Let's look on the DC Comics side of the comics world and see which DC characters, both heroes and villains, became pregnant.
The Top Ten

Catwoman has had a few pregnancies around the different continuities and universes in DC Comics. The most well known and popular time she was pregnant however was with Batman's baby, which is not surprising considering the two have always been off and on with each other. In this storyline, the Cat and the Bat are married and are having a baby girl named Helena.

2 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.

Wonder Woman has had many love interests over the years, both in comics and on TV, Superman obviously being her strongest flame as the two have conceived a child together in multiple storylines and universes. Other lovers of hers who made the Amazonian pregnant (again in different storylines and universes) are Steve Trevor and Batman.

3 Batgirl

Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) has been pregnant in a few different continuities and timelines. In one of those comics, her and Dick Grayson end up together and have a son. There is also another alternate reality in which Barbara ends up pregnant with Bruce Wayne/Batman's child while Dick Grayson was away for a few weeks which completely destroys Dick and Barbara's relationship. This pregnancy doesn't come to full term however as Barbara suffers a miscarriage due to the strains of crime fighting and it's effects on her body.

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

We don't actually see Harley Quinn being pregnant in the comics, but there are two moments which make it clear she was pregnant at one point. In Injustice: Year Two Issue 7, Black Canary fight Harley Quinn and stops fighting to vomit, revealing to Harley that she is pregnant. Feeling compassion for Black Canary, Harley reveals that she knows what it's like being pregnant saying she went away from the Joker for 9 months because she was pregnant with his child and didn't want to bother the Joker (and probably to protect the baby which she gave to her sister so she could care for her). Also, in the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Harley Quinn is now a grandmother, having two twins as her granddaughters.

5 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.

Black Canary was pregnant a few different times in the comics, one time when she was in a relationship with Green Arrow. Also, in Injustice: Year Two Issue 7, she is in a fight with Harley Quinn, which stops pretty quickly as Harley refuses to fight Black Canary due to her being pregnant, which was made obvious after she started puking.

6 Superwoman

In Earth 3, a universe in which all DC heroes are villains, Superwoman is in a dysfunctional relationship with her teammate of the Crime Syndicate Ultraman, but is also having an affair with another teammate named Owlman, while at the same time having an affair with Alexander Luthor, the greatest enemy of the Crime Syndicate and a hero of Earth 3. It is soon revealed that Superwoman is pregnant, telling all of her lovers they are the father of the child. All that was a plan so that the League would free Mazahs, the real father, who was held prisoner by the Syndicate.

7 Stephanie Brown

In Robin #58, Stephanie reveals to Robin that she is pregnant with her ex boyfriend's child, the two having broken up weeks before. She decides the best option is giving the child up for adoption as Gotham isn't a safe place.

8 Orca

In Injustice 2 issue #42, Killer Croc and Orca are a married couple. In the comic, Orca walks into a room where Croc and a few others are eating and just announces that she's pregnant, after which everyone in the room just starts staring at Croc.

9 Talia Al Ghul Talia al Ghul is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

Talia is the daughter of Raz Al Ghul, the leader of the league of assassins. In Batman: Sons of the Demon, Talia gives birth to a child whose father is none other than Batman. The child was named Damian Wayne.

10 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.

A bit of an interesting story here. Power Girl immaculately became pregnant after she came in contact with her grandfather who is an Atlantean sorcerer. The pregnancy was explained as a gift so that a baby could be born capable of defeating an Atlantean demon. This story however was not explored further after the birth of the baby, which is not surprising considering the writers' track record with Power Girl.

The Contenders
11 Lady Shiva Lady Shiva is a fictional supervillainess and antiheroine appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.

Lady Shiva had a child with her lover David Cain, although that happened after their falling out after she discovered Cain was the one who murdered her sister. She hunted him down, only to be lured into an ambush by Ra's al Ghul's League of Assassins, of which Cain was a member. Cain spared her life, and in exchange, she agreed to bare Cain a child, and leave it for him to raise. The child, Cassandra Cain, was to be Ra's al Ghul's "One Who Is All," a perfected bodyguard.
