The 15 Most Powerful Female Characters In The Marvel Universe

How do you define what it means to be the most powerful? When it comes to being a superhero, they find themselves in so many situations where it's not power, but versatility that comes in handy. While having one power used to be cool, that's hardly the case sometimes. You need to be able to have multiple powers, and if you do, you better hope those powers can combine to make you one formidable foe.

By the time 2016 wraps, several new superhero movies will have come and gone and will perhaps leave us with a lasting impression or a new favorite character. Yet no matter how ‘cool’ your character is, if they don’t have the firepower to stand up in battle you may not be a fan of theirs for very long.

While most of the mainstream Marvel universe films are centered around male characters, that hardly makes them the most powerful out there. Just because the Fantastic 4 movies suck, doesn't mean that the Invisible Woman is any less awesome. Plus, you may love The Hulk, but do you know anything about She-Hulk? Throughout Marvel’s history, female characters have played a prominent role and they are well deserving of some recognition.

One thing is for sure, there is not a single person on this list that you would want to run into in a dark alley! Here are the 15 most powerful female characters in the Marvel universe.

When it comes to some of the most powerful Marvel characters (much less just women!), you can’t have a very long discussion without Dark Phoenix coming up. If you look at just Jean Grey, you have an assortment of powers that are enough to make anyone jealous. Jean has telekinesis, telepathy, can alter your memory (and erase it), she can read your mind and that’s still only the tip of the iceberg. Dark Phoenix is another beast entirely as she gains the ability to manipulate matter and energy. If that wasn't enough, she can also manipulate time, travel through space and summon cosmic fire that you really don’t want to mess with.

Trust me, the last thing you want to see across from you during a battle is Jean.
