Top 5 Most Powerful Female Superheroes

It’s all about the ladies in this very special article dedicated to the most powerful superheroines in the Marvel and DC universe.

Despite the overwhelming number of superpowered men in these two universes, these super gals are no damsels in distress and stand on par with their male counterparts.

Rogue

Born Anna Marie to her parent, Owen Priscilla, Rogue is one of the most beloved characters in the Marvel comics. What makes Rogue so powerful is her ability to absorb the psyche as well as the abilities of any human being - or certain alien creatures - that she comes into contact with.

These powers enable Rogue to become one of the most formidable members of the X-Men, as she is able to turn the power of her enemies against themselves.

An example of this can be seen when Rogue was able to channel the powers of her 5 teammates to inflict massive damage on Bastion during the events of X-Men: The Second Coming.

Jesse Quick

Jesse Chambers, also known as Jesse Quick, inherited her powers of superspeed and superhuman strength from her parents Johnny Quick and Liberty Belle.

This deadly combination, along with the power of flight, makes Jesse Quick one of the most awesome characters in the DC Universe.

In fact, Jesse Quick’s abilities enabled her to stop a nuclear threat as well as defeat the villain Zoom with the assistance of Wally West.

Molly Hayes

A newcomer to the Marvel Universe, Molly Hayes is a member of the Runaways. Born to a pair of supervillains, Molly Hayes is blessed with both super strength and invulnerability.

Recognized as one of the most powerful female characters in the Marvel Universe after Jean-Grey and Rogue, Molly Hayes has proven herself to be a superhero that should not be reckoned with.

This is a fact that Wolverine unfortunately discovered when he was thrown through the roof of the Xavier Mansion after insulting Molly’s parents.

Storm

A superheroine with the power of the elements literally at her fingertips, Storm or Ororo Munroe is a firm fan favorite. Storm’s ability to unleash the power of nature on her foes has made her an integral member of the X-Men.

Her leadership abilities and wise counsel has kept the X-men together even during the toughest of times. Tough, powerful and beautiful, Storm is truly one of the most iconic X-Men characters.

 

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman, or Princess Diana of Themyscira, is both a symbol for female empowerment as well as one of DC Comics’ most iconic characters.

An Amazonian demigoddess and a master of armed and unarmed combat, Wonder Woman has been described by Batman as the “best melee fighter in the world.”

Capable of feats of extreme strength as well as having the ability to stop bullets with her Amazon bracelets, Wonder Woman is truly an impressive superheroine.

While comic books have traditionally been the domain of men, these superheroines show us that it’s not just a boys-only club. Did we miss out on your favorite superheroine? Let us know in the comments below.
