Girl power represent, right? Arguably, comic books just wouldn’t be as popular without the beautiful and powerful women that are in them. Although superheroines weren’t always well-represented in comic books, they are increasingly becoming mainstays and are also getting their own stand-alone films. Superwoman, a feminist icon, hadn’t been portrayed on screen in 70 years - how much of a travesty was that?! Of course, there is still room for improvement. Who wouldn’t love to see even more of these ultra sexy and strong women dazzle on screen?
These actresses have a lot to live up to when it comes to playing powerful superheroines and supervillains on screen - they have to look the part with a body that is fit and toned and have a powerful on-screen presence. It is not an easy feat. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t, but even when it doesn’t, these actresses still always look good. We can’t complain about that, right? So, who exactly has been cast to bring to life some of comic book’s sexiest characters? Take a look for yourself.

1 Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch
The gorgeous Elizabeth Olsen, younger sister of the Olsen twins, first portrayed Marvel’s Scarlet Witch in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. She plays one of the most powerful superheroes, whose mental powers are out of this world due to the hexes that she can cast. What is more powerful than being able to manipulate reality? On her character, Olsen had to say: "What I love about her is that, in so many superhero films, emotions are kind of negated a bit, but for her everything that someone else could feel—like their weakest moments—she physically goes through that same experience with them, which is pretty cool." To prepare for the role, she did a lot of dancing instead of traditional stunt work.
