Coolest Superhero Women We Forget About

Coolest Superhero Women We Forget About

Ask someone to name some women superheroes and the results will most likely be pretty predictable. Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Catwoman are typical of the ones that come to mind. But there are whole universes out there of other female superheroes we may forget about. Some of them may turn up yearly in San Diego where there is an annual comic book convention. Some people dress up as characters from comic books. In addition to costuming, they may alter their hair in some way to look more like the characters, and in San Diego breast enhancement or other modifications could be done as well.

Spider-Woman

One of the cool superhero women who might be seen there that we forget about is Spider-Woman. Everyone knows Spider-Man, but most don’t know about Spider-Woman. This superhero woman has murky origins due to the fact that she’s been rebooted a few times, but some origin stories have her starting out as a villain working for a terrorist group known as HYDRA. Over time, however, she became a superhero.

Vixen

African-born but relocated to America, Vixen is a superhero who got her powers from the Tantu Totem passed down from her ancestors. She can take on the ability of any animals including those that are extinct. Vixen mostly appears as part of a team such as the Justice League, but she is a terrific character who deserves to be better known.

Zatanna

Stage magician Zatanna is also a real magician and part of a mystical race. This sorceress superhero wears a top hat and fights supernatural forces. She’s been around since the 1960s and currently is part of the Justice League Dark team in the DC Universe, but too few people know about this cool superhero woman.

Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel

Most people remember Captain Marvel, but how many know there was a Ms. Marvel? In fact, Carol Danvers has gone through multiple incarnations and has resurfaced today as Captain Marvel herself. Therefore, the character many may think of when they hear Captain Marvel has undergone a big change and is yet another superhero woman overlooked by many.

Renee Montoya/The Question

Another woman who’s taken on an identity formerly associated with a male superhero is Renee Montoya, a police detective in Batman’s Gothic city. Montoya was a long-running character in the Batman universe in that incarnation. Later, though, she took over the identity of the Question when the man who carried that title died.

    Interesting article. I’d have fun with the girl in the picture, though.

  2. Richard Rider March 6, 2013 at 12:16 pm -      #2

    Wheres She-Hulk? She’s a lawyer and kicks ass.

    @Dr. Doctor
    thats Zatanna.
    @anyone/no one/everyone
    other than the female question I know all these heroines and they are some of my favorite heroes actually……in fact I wouldn’t call any of them unknowns.
    Now the female Black Panther, the She Hulk thats Hulks daughter from the future, white tiger, the new Captain Universe, BumbleBee, these are some lesser known female super heroes that need love.

    Don’t forget Lady Deathstrike.

  5. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:27 pm -      #6

    @Richard Rider
    this is for unknown/forgotten Super Heroic Women, or is supposed to be.
    Mrs. Marvel/Captain Marvel is really the least unknown on this list thanks to the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games and playing a,major role in Season 2 of Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes to name just a few non comic appearances of recent years. the Captain Marvel deal is just a recent Captain Marvel died and she took up the mantle (hesitantly I might add though the powers she got anyway but she was nervous about taking the name) thing, he died passed the powers to her, if you pay attention to only major events or are a fan of Captain Marvel its not that unknown, and she herself has a large fanbase and is well known.

    @Guardian:
    Well she could teach me magic any time she likes. xD

  7. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:32 pm -      #8

    @Marcel and RR
    Lady Deathstrike…isn’t she still a villian?
    Elektra is a good one for here she has very minimal exposure compared to the people on the list.
    Lady Deadpool same as Elektra.
    regular She-Hulk is too mainstream pretty sure everyone knows her. Hell shes a reserve member of the Fantastic Four it doesn’t get much more mainstream than hanging out with Reed Johnny Ben and Sue.

  8. Marcel March 6, 2013 at 12:34 pm -      #9

    Guess Black Widow is not as unknown anymore, thanks to The Avengers. But did anyone forget Silver Fox, Andromeda, or Arisia?

  9. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:37 pm -      #11

    @Dr. Doctor
    Better learn to talk backwards then, thats how her magic works. Really surprised you haven’t heard of her, other than Teen Titans and The Batman she’s been in all things DC, Justice League Unlimited, Smallville, Batman the Brave and the Bold, Young Justice, her face is just about everywhere DC.

  10. Marcel March 6, 2013 at 12:38 pm -      #12

    “Lady Deathstrike…isn’t she still a villian?”
    -
    Yup, but why should this thread be heroes only?

  11. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:43 pm -      #13

    @Marcel
    do you mean Silver Sable?
    @Richard Rider
    Shazam, DC’s Captain Marvel? a guy who can give Superman a black eye and essentially a magic Superman….vs Zattana, a squishy human wizard (the word doesn’t relate only to male magic users magic society gives women magic users equal rights believe it or not, which is impressive considering modern society is bad about not doing that) you want Zattana to fight a guy who is Superman plus magic?

  12. Richard Rider March 6, 2013 at 12:44 pm -      #14

    @The Guardian in the TARDIS
    ShaMan not ShaZam.

  13. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:44 pm -      #15

    @Marcel
    because it says Superhero Women in the title

  14. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:46 pm -      #16

    @RR
    misread it sorry.
    Would have to reread Shamans abilities but potentially.

  15. Amm0vamp1r3 March 6, 2013 at 12:51 pm -      #17

    What about Seras Victoria? She is a hero and She is super powered.

    What about Phyla-Vell a hero from the Annihilation Wave?

    @Amm0
    could likely count her yes. Don’t see a reason not to.

  18. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 12:58 pm -      #20

    @RR
    yeah her too.

  19. Amm0vamp1r3 March 6, 2013 at 12:58 pm -      #21

    There should be a heroin off,best Female hero brawl,Maybe I could make a topia thread and the first 6 women named will be in the fight (jk) but yea something like that

  20. Marcel March 6, 2013 at 12:58 pm -      #22

    “do you mean Silver Sable?”
    -
    Her too, yes, but I was referring to Wolverine’s first love interest, also known as Madame Hydra and Viper. Basically before she turned rogue.
    -
    “because it says Superhero Women in the title”
    -
    Yeah, I guess I was just trying to throw in a little diversity

  21. Amm0vamp1r3 March 6, 2013 at 1:00 pm -      #23

    Either that or Name a female form the different forms of fiction (video games,Novels,etc etc) and have a clash of the fiction vixens

  23. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 1:03 pm -      #25

    @Amm0
    depends what level of female heroes you draw from, kryptonian tier mid tier no powers tier…..it can get as bad as it does with male heroes

  24. Amm0vamp1r3 March 6, 2013 at 1:04 pm -      #26

    I was thinkin pick a novel hero (because most the times aren’t super comically OP) then work around her

  25. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 1:10 pm -      #27

    depends on the novel you pick but possibly

    “In addition to costuming, they may alter their hair in some way to look more like the characters, and in San Diego breast enhancement or other modifications could be done as well.”
    _
    There’s an actual fucking link to a plastic surgery page for implants?! Also “modifications” leads to a fucking fitness and exercise page, and you guys didn’t bat a fucking eyelid did you?
    _
    No because women who cosplay must be fit, with large breasts, right? I… I just don’t have the words right now…

  27. Awesome Assasin March 6, 2013 at 1:23 pm -      #29

    Honestly I didn’t actually read anything I just jumped in and said Seras because I doubted she would be said

  29. Richard Rider March 6, 2013 at 1:29 pm -      #31

    I just saw the names of women listed and wanted to add more.

    @TheBoss
    not all guys are like that, I didn’t even notice the links at first and after I did assumed they were just pictures of cosplayers. Hell I can’t talk about staying in shape, and personally don’t care what a woman looks like. My girlfriend of four years (soon to be five) is a bit overweight but to me she’s the most beautiful woman in the world (tried to get her to cosplay as Hinata with me as Naruto when we went to an anime convention but we ended up not getting the costumes in time) because I don’t care about looks, I care about the kind of person she is, and really that’s what’s important. I’ve always found women who get plastic surgery to be disgusting, cheap, and in many cases, complete bitches, that act like they are the best thing since sliced bread, yet didn’t have enough self confidence to do whatever they think their all that for with what they were born with.
    Fitness, I’m not touching, like I said, I’m not in the best of shape I can’t cast stones.

  32. TopaztheSpaz March 6, 2013 at 1:56 pm -      #35

    Renee is no longer the Question or even a part of DC anymore from what i understand, which makes me sad.

    —–

    Grace Choi was always bad ass, same with the third Terra Atlee. Then there is Dove from Hawk and Dove, Mulan Kato from Green Hornet is pretty bad ass, and semi anti-hero Black Alice who is one of the most haxed DC characters in existence.

    —–

    Fucking hate Tigra

    ——-

    The female Dr. Light is pretty decent also, Batwoman, and the beast from Marvel the single coolest female SHIELD agent Daisy “Quake” “I shake your brain till it pops” Johnson. The current Director of SHIELD.

  33. TopaztheSpaz March 6, 2013 at 1:58 pm -      #36

    Also Vixen is so fucking bad ass

  34. Dassadec March 6, 2013 at 1:59 pm -      #37

    Hitgirl, Rogue, Dagger(cloak and dagger)

  35. Soulerous March 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm -      #38

    @TheBoss- If I may, the description seems merely to offer the knowledge that these things can be done, which I think is quite relevant considering girls sometimes do such things for cosplay whether they are encouraged to or not. It’s all part of the social cycle of men and women alike encouraging the idea that women need to look perfect for acceptance, or letting it be encouraged, or simply being outnumbered and unable to stop it in other cases, like with me.
    ~
    I don’t think, or at least I hope, that no one here is so shallow as to think if a girl isn’t fit and “modified” as needed then she shouldn’t do something she loves like cosplay. But some people do think like that, and the article simply acknowledges the option. It says may and could.
    ~
    Now myself, I’ve always liked Black Canary. But if it weren’t for the Beast, Belle would be mine…

    Oh and the second Catwoman Holly Robinson, who with the help of Harley Quinn saved the entire greek pantheon from Darkseid.

    Quake big time is an unknown since she’s relatively new.
    ——————–
    Hope Summers is somewhat unknown

    Gamora, Thanos sort of daughter, and Guardians of the Galaxy member.

  39. TopaztheSpaz March 6, 2013 at 2:08 pm -      #42

    Artemis an amazon that took up the Wonder Woman mantle for a bit, and then later sort of made a name for herself.

    Not every person who gets plastic surgery is a “cheap” conceited bitch. I’m sorry that’s all you seem to have run into. Though I’d love to hear your reasoning as to why they’re disgusting.
    _
    “If I may, the description seems merely to offer the knowledge that these things can be done, which I think is quite relevant considering girls sometimes do such things for cosplay whether they are encouraged to or not. It’s all part of the social cycle of men and women alike encouraging the idea that women need to look perfect for acceptance, or letting it be encouraged, or simply being outnumbered and unable to stop it in other cases, like with me.”
    _
    And that makes it okay does it, to perpetrate these harmful stereotypes? This is a debating forum, I didn’t expect to see this kind of thing here. The funny thing is though, if I hadn’t of mentioned it, I doubt anyone would have noticed at all. Willful ignorance, “Oh I didn’t read it/notice it”. Yea, that’s half of the problem these days. The intent is there, women need to change in order to fit with societies idealised views. Whether this is your views or not, it’s up there, and no one even noticed.

  48. Amm0vamp1r3 March 6, 2013 at 2:35 pm -      #51

    That must mean it really isn’t important,or people just don’t believe it. I personally don’t care, If you want to change yourself then change its your right to,If not love yourself and you’re fine

  49. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 2:40 pm -      #52

    @TheBoss
    personality wise some of the ones I’ve run into have been disgusting, they may look good but I wouldn’t want them as friends. Course of the few I’ve run into some have been more Barbie doll than woman so do they really count? And I just have an issue with going to extremes to change who you are physically just to look like what they think society wants them to look like. I can understand a facelift, liposuction to a point, minor stuff like that, by itself (my aunt has gotten a facelift but I forget she’s gotten it since I only see her once in a blue moon and it only gets brought up if my grandmother brings it up when their together) but the full on changing what you look like thing just doesn’t sit right with me. Guess I should have been more specific what I meant.

    In my defense, I never saw the links. It’s inner beauty that matters anyways, isn’t it?
    -
    On a note, I think part of the problem is that comic artists have portrayed superhero women in a certain way to appeal to the majority of male readers. I mean, how many readers looking for a comic strip with eye candy would buy an issue of, for example, a girl version of “The Blob?” Not saying that it couldn’t be successful, but the comic-makers are trying to make money on those that have a out-of-control sex drive, I guess. They appeal to what the majority of male society sees as entertaining, sadly.

    “personality wise some of the ones I’ve run into have been disgusting, t”
    _
    That seems to be more indicative of how they were raised, or what circles the belong to, then the fact they have had plastic surgery.
    _
    “And I just have an issue with going to extremes to change who you are physically just to look like what they think society wants them to look like. ”
    _
    You’re using a minority extreme as a basis for a wider whole. Also you’re basing this from a physical perspective, rather than a deeper source. You said yourself it’s what’s on the inside that counts. What if someone wants to physically look, like they feel on the outside? Regardless of what society thinks. A woman who is overweight may want to get liposuction because of low self esteem, or as a slightly easier and faster way of losing weight, for health personal health reasons. Or a woman going from an A cup to an C cup, because they feel less feminine with small breasts. They feel they aren’t taken as seriously as a woman because they don’t look like what society thinks, and here’s the thin line, she’s doing it for herself, so she feels better and has more confidence, then changing herself for society alone. Would you deem her disgusting?

    The thing is, your trying to excuse a business where they glorify women as sex objects, to be fawned over and are then viewed as lesser, and then to allow for people to mock women who don’t conform to these sociologically conceived standards. The mere inclusion of links, above, is to offer it up and say “go on”. To educate you need mere words, or links to relevant subjects. These are just to blanket pages, with no correlation to cosplaying at all. What message do you think that’s giving?
    _
    There is a female version of “the blob” btw, she’s called Big Bertha, though the mere fact that she is a sexy women as well as a larger set one is just sending mixed messages. (There’s a little known female superhero for your thread)

    @TheBoss- “Whether this is your views or not, it’s up there, and no one even noticed.
    -And you feel the failure to speak against an implied stereotype when it’s mentioned is immoral? You seem to agree with the adage “All it takes for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” which I certainly do. I personally don’t think the stereotype was perpetuated, though. Faulty information spreads all the time, and it is good to oppose it when it is supported. It isn’t bad to ignore it when it merely exists, though. It already exists; in this case, we simply have the opportunity to oppose the stereotype, which you have chosen to do, and I support you in that.

    @ Soulerous
    You must forgive me if you thought I was making an attack on your person. I’ve spent a lot of time recently reading through threads about female oppression in today’s society. Yesterday was a fun day, women in the gaming industry, or “gurl gamers” as Fake gamers, or girls who game. I trawled through thousands of comments, a lot of them were not good. So again, sorry.
    _
    The problem is that people do ignore it, and do try to brush it under the rug. The act of ignoring it, is akin to agreeing with it. Almost as if your (the general you) accepting it because its perceived as the norm, and therefore nothing to worry about.
    _
    “By the way, what happened to your night elf name? Are you really undercover?”
    _
    I’m not undercover no, I just felt like a change, I’ve used the tag Ruliya for over a decade now, and while I still use it in many places, sometimes it’s nice to try out something new ^^ (Also I’m really wanting to play MGS!)

    -
    So perhaps I should have worded that better. I am by no means trying to shield the business; I am just saying that because of the spiral society has gone down concerning sex appeal, that the business has followed that same spiral (or the other way around) in order to make money off of that society. I was more remarking on the sad state of affair media has left us with. And again, I never viewed the links; for fear of what I might behold, actually. So, I’m sorry if it came across in the way that it did; that was not my intention.

    also from the Dresden Files Karrin Murphy, five foot tall waif of a police officer that has stood up to among other things, a minibus sized werewolf (she attacked it with a 22 caliber pistol), a giant tree/planet monster (she killed it with a chainsaw), and a 10 or so foot tall 40 ton goat man troll slaying Faerie bounty hunter in full battle armor (unarmed unless you count a pistol in the holster as armed against above stated goat man when he’s able to grab you from where you are) and got job offers from a Valkyrie of Asgard and an Archangel of Heaven, and turned them down so far. She’s a badass human, and hero.

    “Speaking of which, what is the point of simply listing heroines?”

    Indeed, I’m not entirely sure what the point is tbh.

    Let’s be honest, it’s not just Wadey Assassin who’s been listing them, everyone has. I’m not sure the true purpose of this thread. Though I am thoroughly outraged at it. But I’ve been through that ;P

    @TheBoss
    I mainly listed less known Heroines, and a lot of the others did for the most part as well.
    If I understood the post it was supposed to be a way to help get more attention to under appreciated Heroines but the choice of Heroines causes that to fail due to all the ones the article lists being mainstream (except perhaps Renee Montoya, but then again the Question himself isn’t that mainstream so she just gets whamied due to previous mantle holders lack of popularity)

    Why thank you.

    Ruliya’s gonna hate me for this, but I was looking at the picture more than the article itself. Didn’t even realize there were links sewn in there. x3

    I didn’t even read the article.

    Of course you didn’t. I mean, there was a picture of a sexy lady, why would you bother reading? Though there hasn’t been one of those pics (by itself) for a while now.

    I don’t hate you, it seems to be what everyone else did. Apparently only I actually read the darn thing.

    Yea, but that’s just Pamela Anderson, who hasn’t been relevant since…uh… Baywatch I guess, and look what she was doing for stereotypes there. I mean did anyone actually watch V.I.P? I saw a few episodes and wow…

  96. The Guardian in the TARDIS March 6, 2013 at 9:18 pm -      #99

    honestly I saw it was Zatanna didn’t pay much attention to it otherwise, read the article, and made my first comment. I remember thinking, huh, not the best choice for the face of a superheroine that we forget about, cool, but not easily forgotten since she’s one of DC’s main heroes anymore.
