In the comic book world, female superheroes have not been in the limelight as much as their male counterparts. However in the recent past, the conversation regarding female superheroes has began to change. Even the number of female comic book fans has risen dramatically. As a result female superheroes are on the rise, not only in comics but also in the movies and television. The entertainment media is full of powerful females who possess fantastic powers, and there are inspiring stores about them. Here are four of the most famous female superheroes:
Wonder Woman is the quintessential female superhero. Also called Princess Diana, she originated from Themyscira, a remote island inhabited only by women. Her powers are similar to those of superman, and she battles with super villains, malevolent Greek gods and various forces that are bent on oppressing females. Wonder woman has starred in various solo comics and is a member of the Justice League. In the 1970’s, she had her own TV show and she recently appeared in the Batman vs. Superman movie. There are plans of a solo film featuring wonder woman as the main superhero.
This telepathic superhero has been a leading light in the X-men movies-and her psychic powers are almost equal to those of Professor X. She finds out about her powers at an early age, but she cannot use them fully because her first experience almost kills her. Later she joins X-men as the first female member .She also merges with an entity called Phoenix, and this pushes her power to stratospheric levels. When she enters the Phoenix state, Jean’s powers are so strong that she can manipulate sub-atomic matter and cause any living thing or object that she focuses on to disintegrate. This Phoenix force sometimes makes her unstable and a big threat to the X-men.
For a long time she was called Ms.Marvel and she succeeded the male Captain Marvel. A major in the air force and a longtime member of the Avengers, Carol Danvers becomes the new Captain Marvel. She is a hybrid of a Kree(an alien race in Marvel comics) and a human and possesses energy-laden cosmic powers. She displays an indomitable spirit and a strong moral code, and this is what brings out the true superhero aura. Captain Marvel is like Superman in her strength, flight and indestructibility and she can also absorb energy, which makes her even stronger. Carol Danvers can even absorb magical powers. In addition, she is an exceptionally skilled pilot and highly trained in espionage and hand-to-hand combat.
Natasha Romanov is the Black Widow, raised as a super spy and a Soviet assassin. She switches sides and joins S.H.I.E.L.D.(a law enforcement agency in the world of Marvel comics) as a member of the Avengers. While she does not possess any superpowers, she is an expert in combat and secret operations. The Black Widow uses conventional tools and weapons which are disguised to appear like ordinary objects. This superhero has appeared in several video games, movies and TV shows. The Black Widow character has recently been portrayed in Marvel films by actress Scarlett Johansson, and this has greatly boosted her popularity.
