Female superheroes have not as predominant and common as their male counterpart since the beginning of the golden age of comics. That is since comics transformed from being strips to full-fledged books. However, over time we have come across quite a few remarkably heroic female characters who have left their mark and created a fanbase of their own.
Who Has Better Female Superheroes Marvel Or DC?
The clash between Marvel and DC is age-old now. While both have some common fanbase, there are always those who are more inclined towards one of the two. However, neutrally speaking, when it comes to the portrayal of the major female superhero, there has been quite a distinction between Marvel and DC. While both houses have some wonderful and formidable female superheroes, when it comes to representation, Marvel has outdone DC in this segment quite clearly. DC has failed to give its female superheroes the position they deserve.
One prominent example will Mera, one of the most influential female superheroes in the DC universe who down to merely being Aquaman’s wife. Marvel, on the other hand, has explored its female superheroes much better and has created quite a long list of some of the most powerful female superheroes to have ever existed in the comics world.
Most Powerful Female Superheroes Of All Time
The debate between Marvel and DC will continue for ages. But let’s cut the chase and get right into it.
One of the most powerful mutants, Jean Grey, is among the most powerful female superheroes of all time. A member of the X-Men from the Marvel Universe, she has been a fan favorite for long. Her telekinetic power has no bounds. While she is an Omega mutant, which means she is in league with the likes of Professor Xavier (Prof.X) and Magneto, she is more powerful than either one of them. Her alter-ego, also known as Phoenix, is quite literally the strongest of all mutants, unleashing unfathomable power.
Another member of the Marvel Universe, Carol Danvers, aka, Captain Marvel, is among the most overpowered female superheroes. She received her power when Kree Captain Yon-Rogg tried to kill another Kree Mar-Vell, working secretly in NASA on earth. And the latter’s DNA got imprinted into Carol in the process. An authoritative radiation source also blasted her, which was collected from the Space Stone, an infinity stone. Her super-strength, super-agility, seventh-sense, and other such amazing powers make her one of the most formidable forces in Marvel Universe.
One of the most underrated female superheroes from the DC universe is Raven. She became a fan favorite ever since she was included in the Teen Titans show on Cartoon Network. She has an amazing range of powers that include telekinesis, astral projection, moving between dimensions, controlling shadows, and darkness. Teleportation, instant healing of even fatal wounds, creating hallucinations, and manipulating any form of emotional energy are also some of her powers.
Wonder Woman: Female Superheroes
She is an Amazonian and a member of the DC universe. Wonder Woman is almost as powerful as Superman in his base form. She is a fierce warrior and walks the path of righteousness and justice. However, the main attraction isn’t her power, rather her composure while being extremely powerful. She demonstrates humane characteristics, love, care, and affection.
While she does not have many superpowers, Mystique remains one of the strongest female characters of all time due to her ability to shapeshift. And transform into anyone she likes and having exceptional strategic skills. She has worked both against and with the X-men and shares particularly complicated relationships with both Professor Xavier and Magneto.
So, what do you think about the list? Do you have anyone else on your mind?
