Let’s be honest: there aren’t too many female comic book characters that aren’t hot. That’s right: the comic book industry is basically supported by big boobs and voluptuous backsides (after all, sex sells - especially in the comic book industry). It is surprising then, that these ladies haven’t always been the stars of the show.
Comic book characters didn’t actually start being drawn super sexily until the 80s - think big boobs and big bottoms (which you probably already were!). Combine this with the fact that they barely had any clothing on and were drawn in sexually suggestive poses, you’ve created the pinnacle of fantasy. Men were also sexified though, with muscles and broad shoulders for days.
Female comic book characters have always been controversial, much as women often are. Either they were too sexy or too unrealistic or they were victims of violence. They weren't always seen as equals and they were stereotypical. You get the idea. Thanks to all the real-life female superheroes in the 70s who pushed for women to be more represented, a lot of super-heroines and super-villains started making their way onto the comic book scene. And, in the past few years, female comic book characters have been able to be just as heroic as their male counterparts. In celebration of female comic book characters who are just as powerful as men, here is a list of those who are both powerful and hot.
9 The Scarlet Witch
6 Black Canary
5 Red Sonja
4 The Black Widow
2 Emma Frost
1 Wonder Women
DC Comic’s Wonder Woman, is a warrior princess. One of the most popular female comic book characters dating back to the 40s. She has a ton of superpowers (super strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, agility, flight - we could go on), top of the line combat skills and a ton of weapons. Who wouldn’t want a tiara that you can throw at people if necessary? One of her more interesting superpowers is empathy, which gives her a lot of insight. What makes her hot? She is a feminist, fighting for justice, love, peace and gender equality. Not only that, but while her personality tends to change depending on the writer, one thing that has stayed the same is the fact that she offers loves and compassion without discrimination. Not to mention she has an incredible body given that she is an amazing athlete. Her skimpy swimsuit costume also probably contributes to her hotness (we assume…). In general, Wonder Woman has it all. Gal Gadot is set to take on the role of Wonder Woman in the first feature film starring this superheroine in 70 years. She will make her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in March 2016.
