Superheroes all seem to bump uglies with each other. We get it — it must be a lonely life being so much cooler, stronger, and hotter than anyone else around you. Heroes seem to either pair off (Ant-Man and Wasp) or they find a regular person that accepts who they are (Lois Lane and Superman). But what about those who don’t want that? It’s well known that guys like Batman and Daredevil get with hundreds of ladies as their alternate personas, but the women don’t get this luxury.
The women in comic books are always forced to use the men around them for their extracurricular activities. For example, Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, has a number of boyfriends, but almost all of them at one point were her partners when she was working for S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s not fair to them. While Wolverine can go around and sleep with everyone, girls like Kitty Pryde are forced to only experiment with other X-Men that she can find within the halls of the Xavier Institute. Women have needs just the same as any of the men in comics. Here are the 10 most promiscuous girls in all of comic books.
10. Black Canary
Black Canary is in a very high profile relationship with Oliver Queen, aka The Green Arrow. Since their marriage she has stayed faithful to Ollie, even with temptation in the forms of the likes of Hal Jordan. But before Green Arrow and Black Canary tied the knot, she had some fun as a single woman. Hooking up with guys like Batman were obvious connections, but she made some questionable choices too. She at one point took teenaged superhero The Ray under her wing as a pupil, but quickly took the 16-year-old under her sheets when the two became close. It’s a weird moment, since Dinah is a beautiful adult who could get any man she chooses. Why she chooses a minor is very questionable indeed.
9. Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman is arguably the most powerful super-heroine ever put into comic books, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have any fun. While it always gets written off as being in “alternate universes,” Wonder Woman has done the leaders of the Justice League. Superman, Batman, and Aquaman have all been romantically tied to her at one point or another; in fact the Aquaman-Wonder Woman relationship is the turning point for the end of the world in the popular Flashpoint storyline. Her most recent, and important, relationship was with the hero Nemesis who breaks up with her when he finds out she cannot love him and only wants to use him to breed.
8. Scarlet Witch
Ew! Icky! Gross! That’s our reaction when thinking about the conquests of the Scarlet Witch. She’s been with normal guys (Hawkeye and Captain America), she’s been with crazy guys (Dr. Doom), and she married a robot (The Vision). We can get past all of this, no matter how strange it is that she married a machine. What we can’t get past is the Ultimate Scarlet Witch who hooked up with Quicksilver… her brother. Obviously Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, wants to live wild and free, and more power to her. But we draw the line at doing the deed with her brother. Once again, gross!
Her tuxedo unitard has had comic book fans and superheroes alike drooling over this magician since her first appearance. Being the object of every fan boy’s affection just doesn’t do it for her though. She has made a number of advancements on Batman (and was rejected almost every time) and even tried to hook up with The Flash a month after his wife died. Being shot down by the Justice leaguers must not have sat well with Zatanna as she followed it up by doing the deed with Etrigan the Demon and getting into a relationship with known a-hole John Constantine.
Mystique is more likely to use sex as a weapon than to partake for the fun of it, though she is known to have her fun. She has gone out of her way to get with the most popular mutants in the X-Men universe bedding the likes of Wolverine, Iceman, and even Professor X. Her affair with the mutant Azazel leads to the birth of her son who goes on to be Nightcrawler. Her ability to take the form of anyone plays a major role in her tricks to sleep with the X-Men and tear them apart from the inside out. For example, at one point she poses as Jean Grey to trick Wolverine into sleeping with her in hopes of making Cyclops and Wolverine kill one another. It’s not absurd to believe that she may have done this more often, but was able to get away with it.
Tigra has really made her way through the men of the Marvel universe. She’s done the obvious like Tony Stark, Luke Cage, and Ant-Man, but she’s also gone for the guys who aren’t known as the “players.” She did it with Moon Knight, who is a psychotic schizophrenic Batman wannabe. And then at one point she makes very explicit advances at Jarvis, Tony Stark’s butler who is about 40 years her senior. It’s exactly like if Catwoman tried to seduce Alfred. Some girls just like older men, and god-bless her. About time Jarvis got some action after living with Tony Stark for so long.
What the writers did to Starfire in the New 52 line of comics is a complete turnaround to everything the character once was. She once showed young girls that it was ok to be angry, it was ok to ask questions, and it was ok to not be perfect. Once they integrated her into the New 52 she taught girls they should question the reasoning behind clothes, and when you are bored grab the nearest man and ask to “get busy.” From the get-go in her most recent run in the new 52, Starfire hooks up with both of her teammates and spends almost as much time modeling bikinis as she does fighting evil. She’s no longer the innocent alien that we all crushed on in Teen Titans.
3. Black Widow
Joss Whedon took Black Widow and tied her romantically to The Hulk, which is strange. It’s not strange that the most composed character would fall for the character who is the least composed, but what is strange is that the Hulk is basically the only character she doesn’t sleep with in the comics. She has hooked up with pretty much every other member of The Avengers and even Deadpool at one point. She also admits that she likes it when people tie her up and gag her. Sometimes she uses sex as an interrogation tool, sometimes she just wants to “satisfy a craving.” No one’s judging you Widow, do who or what ever makes you happy.
The Huntress has been known to be down to do anything for a bit of information. The most telling of this is when she sleeps with Josh, some dude who blackmails her into a date, precedes to act like a total jack-ass (at one point he asks her to drive by his ex-girlfriends house), and is over persistent when asking her to go home with him. Even though she says no to his proposition (repeatedly) the comic randomly cuts to them naked in bed the next morning. It’s too bad Huntress had to belittle herself with a total jerk because most of Huntress’s conquests are guys like Nightwing and Arsenal, who happen to be the ex and stepson of her two closest allies when she’s working with the Birds of Prey.
After getting a blood transfusion from her cousin, Bruce Banner, Jennifer Walters inherited a little bit of the gamma radiation that infected Banner causing her to become She-Hulk. Along with the increase in power and size, Jennifer’s sex-drive increased by a crazy amount and a large part of her charactization is her insatiable lust. She’s slept with the who’s who of the Marvel universe including Tony Stark, Hawkeye, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and even Juggernaut (but that one was in a parallel universe). While many super-women get unfairly shamed for their sexual exploits, She-Hulk sees it as empowering and even poses the question of why a man who sleeps around is a “player,” but a woman who sleeps around is a “skank.” A question that never got answered, by the way. She-hulk is one of the more powerful women in the Marvel Universe and can sleep with whomever she wants. Good for you, Ms. Walters!
