It’s no secret that many female superheroes are created with some degree of sex appeal in mind. Just one quick look at many of them will show you exactly what I mean. Tight costumes. Curves in all the right places. Eyes as deep as an ocean.
What makes a female superhero hot has come a long way in the last 65 years. Today’s hero relies on more than just sex and beauty to win her battle. Today’s hero relies on brains, attitude, confidence, and mystery. It’s these in conjunction with their natural, ummm, assets that make the female superhero more deadly than ever.
Now, with so many female superheroes falling under the Marvel Comics umbrella, it’s tough to choose who is the hottest. Don’t fret, however, that’s why I’m here. After careful consideration, I’ve put together a list counting down the hottest of the hot female superheroes. If you’ll permit me a minute or two, I’d like to show them to you.
Here are the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics.
List of the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics
I can’t say for certain that Polaris landing here has something to do with her green (my favorite color) costume. What I can say is that based on looks alone, she’s as hot as they come.
Polaris is the lesser-known child of Magneto. Unlike her siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, Polaris inherited a power set similar to her father. This means that she can, on a lesser level than he, manipulate metal (as long as that metal can be magnetized) and magnetic fields of all kinds. Through this, she can fly, create forcefields, and manipulate the natural magnetic field of the Earth.
In addition to her green costume and awesome powers, she also possesses a Master’s Degree in Geophysics. I can’t speak for you but women who are smarter than I am (this doesn’t take much) are hot women.
9. Invisible Woman
Very few comic book characters have changed in the way that Invisible Woman has. In her first appearances, she was treated and portrayed in a way that personified the era she was created in. Although she was a member of the Fantastic Four, she was often relegated to taking care of the team, cleaning up after them, and the like. Over the years, however, she has changed dramatically.
Invisible Woman is arguably the strongest member of the Fantastic Four. Unlike her three counterparts, her power set has grown and changed just as she has. In addition to being able to turn herself invisible, she can also project invisibility on others, create forcefields, and control and manipulate other objects.
And that’s not even the best part.
During the Civil War event, she really came into her own when she refused to side with her husband, Reed Richards. This caused a temporary split in the group and as a result, she was better for it.
8. Emma Frost
Emma Frost is interesting in the sense that readers either love her or they hate her. In all my years, I’ve never met someone who fell somewhere in between. Those who like her cite both her costume and incredible abilities, while those who don’t claim she’s overly sexualized as a way to sell comic books. Whatever side of the fence you’re on, one thing is for certain. Emma is as powerful as she is sexy and uses both to get whatever she wants.
Emma Frost is a rare mutant in the sense that she has not one but two mutations. The first makes her one of the foremost telepaths in Marvel and the other makes her immune to almost any sort of attack.
There’s something about a little southern charm that’s downright hot, isn’t there? I mean the accent, the look, the mannerisms. It all adds up to someone pretty special and that someone is Rogue.
Rogue really didn’t rise to fame until the X-Men Animated Series. In it, she was a prominent member of a team that included heavy hitters like Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Charles Xavier, and Storm and easily became one of the best parts of the show. In fact, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that her backstory episodes were some of the best.
Rogue is an extremely powerful mutant who is capable of just about anything. This is because her mutation allows her to temporarily steal the powers of any she touches. Or, as in the case of Ms. Marvel, permanently steal their powers. After stealing Ms. Marvel’s powers she gained superhuman strength, stamina, and agility and could fly.
6. Black Cat
Black Cat is Marvel’s answer to DC’s Catwoman. Even though she’s not as good a character as Catwoman (at least according to this guy), she is just as hot. Like everyone else on this list, Black Cat hits all the checkmarks that a hormone-filled teenager looks for.
- Skintight costume
- Rebellious attitude
- Skilled fighter
- Teeters on the edge of being bad
- Has all the right, ahem, attributes
Black Cat is the sexiest of all of Spider-Man’s enemies. Yes, I know in a list that includes an Octopus, a Scorpion, two Goblins, a Hunter, a Chameleon, and a handful of Symbiotes, this appears to be an easy feat. But remember, his enemies also include Silver Sable and she’s anything but ugly.
Sexy, sexy Storm. Storm is as beautiful as a sun shower and as deadly as a tsunami. In one moment she could captivate an entire stadium with her looks and in another, cause that same stadium to fall apart under the pressure of an Earthquake.
Storm is one of, and perhaps, the most powerful of all the X-Men. She is one of the very few mutants to be classified as Omega-Level. What does Omega-Level mean? Simply that her power limit hasn’t been/cannot be accurately measured. Yep. Storm is without a measurable upper limit of power. I don’t know about you, but I find that very mysterious and in my world, mysterious equals hot. So hot, in fact, that it easily lands her on this list of the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics.
4. Kitty Pryde
Kitty Pryde really is that sweet innocent girl that you want to take home to meet your parents, isn’t she? Not only is she adorable, but she’s also cute beyond measure, attractive, beautiful, and a rare combination of lethal and good-natured.
Kitty Pryde is one of my favorite X-Men. When Joss Whedon made her a focal point of his Astonishing X-Men I was giddy for days.
What’s makes her a lock for this list of the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics is that she’s grown in confidence so much over her history. When first introduced she was nothing but a teenager trying to fit in on a team of adult heroes. Over the years, however, she grew and became a leader of that very same team.
In short, confidence is a very hot trait and Kitty Pryde has no shortage of it.
3. Mary Jane Watson
Mary Jane Watson is the quintessential girl next door…literally. Growing up she was shown to be the niece of Peter’s neighbor Anna. Once she debuted, it didn’t take long for Peter to finally take notice.
Mary Jane is, for lack of a better description, a fun-loving fiery red-head. Through her antics and zest for life, she firmly planted herself on the hearts Peter Parker and any who have read Spider-Man.
The remarkable thing about Mary Jane is that she has not followed the path of so many other superhero love interests. She’s strong, smart, confident, and extremely cunning. Each of these traits alone makes her a beautiful woman. Together, they leave me no choice but to put her on this list of the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics.
2. Gwen Stacy
Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane? That’s the question that has plagued Spider-Man fans for the better part of 60 years. If I had any say in it, (which by the way I don’t), it would be Gwen Stacy all the way.
I’m not sure if it’s the tragedy of the character I find attractive or that she’s a brilliant scientist who didn’t fit the mold of a 1960s supporting character. No matter which it is, Gwen Stacy is one of the hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics.
But wait? Not a superhero, you say.
Remember, Gwen Stacy from another dimension is a superhero…and a very popular one at that. She is, of course, Spider-Gwen/Ghost Spider/Spider-Woman and she is that Universe’s hero.
I’ve already said on more than one occasion that Psylocke was my favorite female superhero growing up. There was something about a mysterious and scantily-clad ninja that attracted the attention of this young boy.
Psylocke possesses one of the most well-known and misunderstood backstories in all of comics. Not only did she first appear as a Caucasian woman who transformed into an Asian woman, but she also had her mind swapped, was given cybernetic eyes, and had an ever-evolving set of powers.
Sadly, for all that she’s become, Psylocke is mostly known for one thing…her costume. And while that costume leaves very little to the imagination, it also lands her firmly on this hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics list.
And that’s it. The hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics. What do you think? Who would make your hottest female superheroes in Marvel Comics list?
