6 Influential Female Characters in US Comics! by Eliza Brooks for Sherri Rosen Publicity, NYC

List of the best characters in the female comic book, be it a superhero or villain. For a variety of reasons, these are the female characters comic book enthusiasts who continue to adore. The list includes great women from any time in comics, from classic characters (like Wonder Woman) to characters introduced in the 21st century.

Are you aware that Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, holds the official Guinness World Record as the first female character in her own comic series to serve as the main heroine? Sheena Queen of the Jungle’s first issue was published in the U.S. in 1942. Fans of female comic book characters may know that Wonder Woman first appeared in the same year, but according to Guinness, Sheena was released earlier in the year, earning her the title.

Today’s top females in comic books don’t necessarily look like these genre precursors. There are, at best or otherwise, female comic book characters of different nationalities, loyalties, and abilities as of 2013. Comic book fans may note a difference between all-time female comic book characters, however: the best female comic book protagonists, heroines, and villains are usually dressed to transform the heads of men.

This list contains all-time’s best female comic book characters, including famous female superheroes and villainy. Perhaps you like the villains. Perhaps you prefer superheroes. You may choose your favorites based on skills, clothing, or personality. Nonetheless, the biggest girls in comics are all right here, you choose your picks.

  1. Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman is the most iconic symbol of women’s empowerment in the world of comic books. William Moulton Marston, a strong supporter of female empowerment and inventor of the lie detector test, created her in 1941 (no surprise that the Lasso of Truth is the choice weapon of Wonder Woman). Her backstory suggests she comes from an Amazon-populated island, the reincarnated bodies of men-murdered women. Over the years, her cultural impact has continued to grow and she is a cultural icon today. Marston said of her: “(She) encourages women to stand up, learn to fight, and be strong, so they don’t have to be afraid or rely on men.”

  1. Invisible Woman

Even though some might not expect to see Invisible Woman on this list, she was the first super heroine of Marvel and set the course for future female protagonists. She quickly cemented herself into the Fantastic Four and the Marvel Universe, despite not being known as the strongest character at the beginning of her career. Invisible Woman is one of the most popular female characters, having brought up two children while still creating and ruling the world of superheroes.

  1. Storm

Being one of the first African superheroes and the very first black woman in comic books, Storm put her name on the map and today remains extremely important in the history of comic books. Ironically, Storm was originally created as a male character called Typhoon but was turned into a female to diversify the all-male cast of X-Men. The influence of Storm in the world of comic books is powerful, as she continues to be a symbol of female empowerment, frequently portrayed in a position of leadership. X-Men’s appearance coincided with America’s Civil Rights movement, contributing to its impact as she was a persecuted minority: a mutant.

  1. Wasp

Wasp is one of the most important characters in history to grace the printed page. She was not only the first female Avenger, in fact,but she was also one of the founders of the organization… she even called the team when it was founded. Even though she began as a side-kick, Wasp quickly made her own name and became the team’s moral center. Wasp is one of the smallest characters ever to grace the Marvel Comics covers.

  1. Harley Quinn

First appearing in Batman: The Animated Series and eventually earning her own spotlight is a fascinating mix of a complex and related villain. She pours into her toxic relationship with the Joker, but there are still moments of clarity. Generally, she is able to admit her own shortcomings. In distress, she’s not the damsel. Is she a model of bad role? So… But who broke you down doesn’t matter; it’s crucial who made you smile again.

  1. Ms. Marvel

Since the last 1960s, Ms. Marvel has been a popular character and has undergone numerous changes over the years. The character’s latest iteration, first-generation American, Kamala Khan, today meets an even wider audience. She has struggled with many issues faced by immigrant families, being teased and ostracized until she gets her superpowers one day. She tells her favorite superhero in a vision that she wants to be “beautiful and awesome, butt-kicking and less complicated.” She gets her wish, becoming a polymorphic reincarnation of Ms. Marvel’s previous characters as well as becoming a related character for many and starting a wave of renewal in the Marvel universe that includes fierce female characters including Jane Foster as Thor.
