Comic books have reached an unprecedented level of popularity. Comic books have surpassed the current generation and will continue to do so in the future. You can see their mark everywhere. I can travel and give comics to children in orphanages and hospitals. It is a great experience to witness their importance.
None of the comic book areas has seen as much growth as female superheroes. Take a look at the past five years of cinema…
- Black Widow
- Wonder Woman
- Captain Marvel
- Scarlet Witch
There are many other options.
Male superheroes have received all praise for the past 70 years. Batman. Superman. Wolverine. Captain America. Female superheroes have taken their rightful place at the top of the comic book mountain. They are finally showing the world that they can be just as good as, or better than, their male counterparts.
Batwoman Kate Kane is one of the comics’ most powerful characters. There is no better character when it comes to standing up for what she believes, her convictions, and the protection of others. This combination is what makes her an unstoppable choice for this list.
Anyone who has been told they cannot, shouldn’t, or should not be able to be Batwoman is now a symbol. Every day, she proves to the world that you can be who and what you are meant to be. She is a trailblazer, and her efforts have opened doors that were once closed.
Zatanna debuted in 1964 and has become one of the most beloved and recognizable comic characters. She is one the most potent sorceresses of DC and can stand up to anyone. It’s hard to believe DC hasn’t capitalized on the success of her character. She could carry a movie, but is there any better way to show DC’s supernatural side than Justice League Dark?
I don’t see any.
DC could learn from Marvel. They could make Dr. DC could make Zatanna a movie if they made Dr.
Black Widow saw a tremendous rise in popularity due to her appearances in MCU. Her popularity was not undeserved. It’s the exact opposite.
Black Widow was a pioneer in the development of female superheroes. Through extensive training, she’s one of the most skilled assassins in comics.
Black Widow is a female superhero because she has to be. You’re mistaken. Black Widow is a female superhero who has inspired girls around the globe to dream and do more.
Spoiler alert! Jean Grey is the most prominent female member of X-Men. But don’t discount Storm. The Storm is a close second. The battery is a very close second. Her morals and convictions are unshakable. Like Charles Xavier, she believes humans and mutants can co-exist peacefully. She lives her life fighting for these beliefs.
The Storm is a mutant who can control all weather conditions. Storm can turn a snowstorm into a tsunami that decimates a city in minutes. Marvel’s fear of showing how powerful she is in their movies is the only thing holding her back from being higher on this list.
Jean Grey is the First Lady of the X-Men. Although her story is complicated and lengthy, she is still one of the most influential women to join the X-Men. It was Jean Grey who the Phoenix Force chose to be its host when it sought out her help.
Jean Grey is a telepath who has been featured in all comics. She can make you think differently, lift and move objects without blinking, and much more.
For most of a decade, Jean Grey is so significant that most X-Men stories revolved around her.
Barbara Gordon is known for having one of the most violent pasts of any comic character. Barbara Gordon, once again Batgirl, was brutally attacked and left for dead at the hands of Joker. She was left paralyzed and in a wheelchair as a result.
This would be a crushing experience for most people, but not Barbara.
Instead of allowing her defeats to dictate her life, she turned them into a motivator to do more. Barbara Gordon, Oracle, was the guide and watchdog for superheroes worldwide. With her, streets were safer than ever.
