10 Female Marvel Characters That Could Obliterate Almost Any Male Superhero
While the MCU is filled with too many amazing male characters, you would be surprised to learn that the comic books and even the television series have some of the most potent female superpowers ever with brighter minds and deeper emotions than their male counterparts. Sadly, it’s only been recently proven that people are eager to see these women on the big screen. Here are some of the best heroines ever.
1. Jean Grey – The Phoenix
She has an uncontrollable power called the Phoenix Force, but even without it, Jean is a fantastic superhero with the ability to move objects with her telekinesis and her psychic skills that come from telepathy.
When she combines all her strengths with the Phoenix Force, Jean surpasses even Professors Charles Xavier’s mental prowess. She can change people’s thought, bring down a plane from the sky and even make someone take his or her own skin off his body. We can’t wait for Sophie Turner’s ‘Dark Phoenix’.
2. Black Widow
We have been seeing Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff for many years in the MCU, but people always complained that, lately, she seems to have taken a smaller role than it was originally expected. She might not have powers like Jean Grey, but her spy skills as unparalleled.
She worked with several intelligence organizations throughout the years and has been able to outthink some of the smartest villains in the world. Because of her innocent and attractive looks, she can confuse others just like the Black Widow spider. We hope her movie is announced soon.
3. Scarlet Witch
No one would disagree that she is impressive, especially after seeing Elizabeth Olsen’s portrayal in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. Her powers are almost unlimited, and although the film showed some incredible abilities, they have yet to scratch the surface of what she can do.
In the comic books, she can manipulate reality to fit her wishes, and she can do this without much effort, saying just three words. When this happened, she changed all the characters in the Marvel Universe, including their timelines. That sounds insane!
This character is basically a mixture of Spider-Man and Black Widow, as she has all the abilities given to Peter Parker, but she has all the skills of a talented spy and detective. Therefore, her mind is notoriously powerful, but she has enhanced strength.
Despite having a weird origin story that has changed several times, Spider-Woman has always been very powerful. Her real name is Jessica Drew, and she knows a lot about HYDRA and S.H.I.E.L.D., which make her far superior to Spider-Man.
Most fans of Marvel have no idea this character exists, but if you want to be known as a connoisseur of the genre, you simply have to know about her. Marvel wouldn’t be the same without this powerful female superhero known, whose real name is Monica Rambeau.
She was New Orleans Harbor Patrol Lieutenant that was hit with extra-dimensional energy, and as a result, Monica developed the ability to transform into all kinds of energy existing in the electromagnetic spectrum which means that she can fly as fast as light, shoot lasers, and even become one. We hope to see her debut in the films soon.
6. Emma Frost
Frost could be compared in many ways to Jean Grey, and she is also known as The White Queen. She can make others hallucinate with her telekinesis and understand their thoughts just by being close to them. We saw evidence of this in ‘X-Men: First Class’.
One of her other cools powers is turning herself into diamond, which makes her invulnerable to attacks that could cripple her in normal human form. Furthermore, this state of being has more strength than normal and can endure more.
We would love to control the weather, and this legendary ‘X-Men’ can control several aspects of climate with her powers. Of course, she can do much more than just turn a gloomy day into a sunny one like causing a tsunami to destroy a whole town.
One of her go-to powers is using lightning which she can summon from the skies whenever she wants to in order to defeat her enemies. Moreover, she has strong leadership skills and can influence others into being better with their own abilities.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has been an icon for many years, and no one could take his place until X-23, also known as Laura Kinney. She is a young, female counterpart to Wolverine, but she also has claws coming out of her feet to attack like a lion.
Of course, she also possessed the ability of fast healing like Wolverine, and that is what makes her one of the most amazing characters in Marvel. We saw her in ‘Logan’, which is apparently Hugh Jackman’s last time as Wolverine, but we hope to see X-23 again.
9. Captain Marvel
We are only a few weeks away from the release of ‘Captain Marvel’ and cannot wait to see Carol Danvers’ origins. She was hit with a lot of radioactive energy, which allows her to absorb it and send it out of her body at will. She is also stronger, has the ability to fly, and can sustain more attacks.
Moreover, she can sense things going on in the cosmos, similarly to Spider-Man’s sense, which allows her to detect when trouble is brewing. This is beneficial because she can act before her enemies are close, and her film is bound to be one of the best in the MCU.
Finally, the best character in this list is a female villain called Nemesis, who is the result of bringing all six known Infinity Stones along with a seventh undiscovered jewel. With this seven powerful gems, a sentient being was born with all the powers of the original stones.
However, because of the “Seventh Gem”, her powers are amplified, which makes three or four times more intimidating than Thanos in ‘Infinity War’. There is no doubt that aside from being a strong female character, she is also one of the most interesting.
What did you think of these list of powerful Marvel ladies? Which one is your favorite? We wonder if Spider-Woman or even Nemesis might make it into the MCU in the future.
