Just as there are iconic heroes and superheroes in all forms of media and literature, there are also plenty of heroines and superheroines to enjoy and be inspired by as well. This is part of six pics showcasing my personal top picks for my favorite heroines, one each from TV, anime, cartoons, comics, games, and movies.
They may end up in distress from time to time, but these six always come out ahead in the end, no matter the odds stacked against them.
Number four is arguably the most well-known character in the list, Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman from her self-titled DC comic and Justice League. An Amazonian princess that also serves as her island's ambassador, Wonder Woman is one of the strongest and battle ready characters around. Nearly on par physically with Superman, there's little doubt when she enters a battle that the opposing side will lose. Powerful, diplomatic, a qualified leader both by blood and her natural talents, armed with armbands that can deflect attacks, carries an unbreakable lasso that forces anyone caught in it to tell the truth, and though she can fly on her own she has an invisible jet... little wonder (pun intended) why she's part of DC's "Big Three" alongside Superman and Batman.
Who she beat in comics: Lots, more than any other category.
A few of the lady X-Men, particularly Storm - if I allowed ties, she'd unquestionably have been included. Rogue, Phoenix (Jean Grey) and Psylocke were close too. Ms. Marvel and Scarlet Witch from the Avengers. On the DC side were Batgirl (original), Black Canary, and Huntress. Since this was a comics-version only list even if the characters appeared in other media (all have been in cartoons, for example), I stuck with only the comics portrayals. Otherwise Hawkgirl, Supergirl, and Vixen from the animated Justice League would count too.
And as a half-joking entry, Alice from the Dilbert comic strips - beware her Fist of Death!
