Top Ten Tuesday #49: Top 10 Comic Book Heroines

Song Of The Moment - Away From The Sun by 3 Doors Down
Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

This weeks topic is:  "Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books (Or you could pick movies/tv)"

So, I thought I'd do something a little different this week and list out my top favorite heroines from comics instead of books! I don't really talk about it much here but I love comics, and I've been reading a lot recently so this is perfect really!



Top Ten Heroines From Comic books:


winged super hero

10. Hawkgirl
First of all, she tends to fight with a spear or mace, can you be more awesome than that? I admit, most of what I've read of her is in the bigger events(Flashpoint, Injustice, etc.) but she's awesome.








Storm by calvinloveinternet

9. Storm (and Rogue)
Storm and Rogue tie for my favorite X-Men. Storm is like the epitome of badass, she's a great, strong leader and an epic fighter. Rogue is a very...complex character that I tend to hate and love at the same time.


I don't know what it is about this drawing of Catwoman, but I absolutely adore it!  By: Artgerm on deviantArt

8. Cat Woman 
Okay, so she's kind of an antihero but I prefer to think of her like Robin Hood...okay?

7. Black Canary
Don't even get me started on how badass she is in Injustice(okay, I'm kind of obsessed with this set of comics). I admit, I'm a little disappointed in the version of her that's in Arrow(the TV Show), cause she's so much more badass in the comics, and just in general I hate both Lance sisters in the show. (but, the costume is definitely better in the show, do you know how hard it was to find a picture where you didn't see her ass? Despicable!)




Raven - Teen Titans by *Markus-MkIII on deviantART

6. Raven
I admit, my love for Raven stems from the old Teen Titian's show, but still. Not only does she look freaky awesome but she has epic powers! I feel like I can say this about every person I mention, but she's badass.

5. Black Widow
Dude, if you've seen the Avengers movies then you know why she's here.

4. Bubbles, Blossom, and Buttercup
What!? Powerpuff Girl comics count!

3. Elektra
She's a ninja assassin, need I say more?









Batgirl sketch by Alvin Lee

2. Barbra Gordon: Batgirl, Oracle
Not only is she an awesome fighter but she's also so smart! That's the thing I love most about this character is she's so intelligent(and badass).

1. Harley Quinn
Yes, I know. My number one is technically a villain, but is she? Okay, yes. But in the Injustice storyline she's not always and she's crazy and awesome and I can't explain my love for her, okay!?









So, that's my, slightly different, top ten post, make sure to link me yours in the comments below and let me know if you have a favorite comic book heroine!

    1. Thank you. And Cat Woman is awesome, I feel like she doesn't get enough recognition! =)

  2. What a great post Shay. I've hardly read any comic books at all, even though I want to. It's just that there's so many of them, and I don't know where to start. I love Storm, Rogue, and Black Widow in the movies though. :)

    1. Haha, I totally understand. It can be so intimidating and confusing to try and get into comics. I probably would have given up if my brother hadn't been there to pick things out for me and explain things!

      Black Widow is the best in the movie anyway! =)

  3. This is soooo so cool. THEY ARE ALL AMAZING! I have Rogue on my list too, although I've only been reading comics this year so I feel rather behind. hehe. But I love the Black Widow. Perfect hair AND she punches bad guys. I mean, come on?! What else should I aspire to?! ;-) Electra sounds downright awesome. Here's my TTT!

    1. Haha, don't worry when it comes to comics I don't think anyone is ever not behind! Black Widow is one of the best, isn't she?

      Elektra is awesome, I know a lot of people don't love her, but she's one of my favorites and only in part because I was obsessed with the movie when I was younger! =)

    1. Yes! Bubbles has always been my favorite, only partially because she wore blue which has always been my favorite color. =)

    1. Yeah, Powerpuff girls have always been one of my favorite things, I used to be completely obsessed with Bubbles! =)

  7. Great list! I'm not really a comic book reader but I did love Storm and Black Widow in the movies. The Powerpuff Girls mention made me smile. My daughter was little when that show first came out and it was definitely one I willingly watched with her. I think sometimes I even watched it without her. Her favorite was the one in the green dress (Buttercup?).
