Why trust us? Check out Comic Basics’ Editorial Policy.

A couple of days ago, I put together a list detailing the greatest superheroes with red hair. The list was fun to create and challenged me to think long and hard about which superheroes had red hair. After I completed it, I thought that perhaps I should also do one for another hair color. You know, so as not to discriminate against the other colors?

Well, the color I chose was blonde and if you permit me a moment or two, I’d like to show you a few superheroes with blonde hair. Here are the top 10 superheroes with blonde hair:

List of greatest superheroes with blonde hair:

10. Saturn Girl

Saturn Girl Origin

As one of the founding members of the Legion of Superheroes and one of its most powerful, it’s easy to place Saturn Girl at number one on this list of superheroes with blonde hair.

Saturn Girl comes from a moon of Saturn known as Titan. Like all who come from Titan, Saturn Girl is inherently gifted with telepathy. Unlike all who come from Titan, Saturn Girl is extremely proficient with it. This means that among the various DC characters that possess telepathy, Saturn Girl is arguably the strongest of them all. In fact, on Titan, she is a Tenth Level Telepath. While this may not sound impressive understand that on a planet filled with naturally gifted telepaths, being Tenth Level is a huge honor.

While you may not agree with what I’m about to say, I believe that if she fought many of Marvel’s telepaths, she probably walk away as the victor.

9. Magik

The History of Magik Illyana Rasputin

As far as X-Men goes, Magik has one of the most bizarre stories in history. She is the younger sister of Colossus and remained that way for most of her existence. Eventually, she wound up trapped in the Limbo Dimension. While there she became immensely powerful and created what’s come to be known as the Soulsword.

The Soulsword is the by-product of Magik causing her own energy to physically form in front of her. When this happens, she draws the Soulsword from it. On its own, the sword is a formidable weapon. However, if used as a weapon, it’s only doing half of what it can do. 

The Soulsword is able to disrupt magical spells and beings, usually causing both to disappear. And as the sword is used more and more, it becomes more powerful. As the Soulsword becomes more powerful, so to does Magik…and she’s blonde.

8. Black Canary

Black Canary

Dinah is the daughter of Larry Lance and Dinah Drake. Because her mother was the original Black Canary, Dinah grew up surrounded by various members of the Justice Society of America (J.S.A). Growing up in the presence of J.S.A. members had an effect on Dinah. That is, being around superheroes made Dinah want to become one. Although her mother strongly disapproved, Dinah persisted. She sought out former members of the J.S.A. to teach and train her. After years of training with the likes of Wildcat, Lady Shiva, and Wonder Woman, Dinah took over the title of Black Canary. From there she took to the streets and began her assault on crime.

No different from her mother, Dinah also possesses the Canary Cry. Different from her mother (Silver Age version), Dinah is able to control it. When used, the Canary Cry is a devastating superpower. Not only can it destroy both organic and inorganic objects, but it can also cause death. More impressively, it can cause ears to bleed from over 600 miles away. The Canary Cry also gives Dinah the ability to fly.

All of this…and she’s one of the greatest superheroes who are blonde.

7. Thor


Thor made his comic book debut inside the pages of Journey Into Mystery 83. He was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and has been gracing the covers of Marvel Comics for more than 50 years. 

Thor is based on the Norse Mythology God of the same name. He comes from a place called Asgard and Asgard is home to some very prominent characters within the Marvel Universe. More specifically, it’s home to Odin, Looking, Sif, Fandral, Hogun, Volstagg, and Amora the Enchantress. 

As a god, Thor can do many things that regular humans can’t. He can fly, possesses incredible strength, heals quickly, can transport across the galaxy and, of course, wields the mighty Mjolnir. Thor is a fixture in Marvel Comics and since his appearance in their movies, has become a household name across the world.

6. Aquaman


When it comes to DC Comics, there isn’t a superhero alive more widely associated with water than Aquaman. Not only is he the hero by which they’ve molded other heroes around, but he’s also the one responsible for their health and safety.

Say what you will about him, Aquaman is incredibly powerful. As the ruler of 71% of Earth’s surface, he controls the planet’s greatest army (water life) and controls arguably the most prevalent and destructive force in the world, water. This means that he can move it, bend it, heat it, throw it, grow it, turn it solid, cause it to rise from the ocean and fall from the sky. Above those, he also possesses superhuman strength, speed, durability, and is extremely long-lived.

Aquaman is a founding member of the Justice League and will hold a spot on the team for as long as he chooses. Aquaman is easily capable of standing toe-to-toe with any of his fellow members and as a result, shouldn’t be trifled with.

5. Emma Frost

Origin of Emma Frost

Emma is one of the most powerful mutants in Marvel. Aside from her impressive telekinetic abilities, she has the ability to control the minds of others, manipulate their thoughts and actions, and do most other things Charles Xavier can do…albeit, not on the level he can do it. Emma is so important to the X-Men that when the Phoenix Force once again came looking for a host, she was one of the five chosen. Unfortunately, because she has spent decades cementing her importance in the history of the X-Men, Emma is both feared and revered by her peers. 

And why?


They fear who she is and what’s she’s capable of, and live in awe of her status as a respected member of the X-Men. 

She is also one of a few mutants with a secondary mutation. Her secondary mutation allows her to transform her body into a diamond-like state. When in this state, she’s practically invulnerable. There is a catch to this, however. While in her diamond form, Emma cannot use her telepathic abilities. 

4. Supergirl


As the cousin of Superman, Supergirl can do everything that he can. 

Supergirl has an extensive list of powers. She possesses superhuman strength, speed, durability, stamina, hearing, and agility. She also has infrared, telescopic, x-ray, heat, microscopic, and electromagnetic vision. In addition, she is nearly invulnerable, can fly, has a healing factor, and possesses both freeze and wind breath.

But there’s more…

Supergirl is nearly fast as any in DC, is an expert combatant, and isn’t afraid to die for the greater good. She is everything that superheroes aspire to be. Because her power set is so malleable and she’s easily stood the test of time, she easily makes this list, and every other one like it.

3. Barry Allen

Feared Flash Enemies

The Flash is one of the oldest superheroes in existence. He (Barry Allen) first debuted in Showcase #4 in October of 1956. As the most famous of all the Speedsters in DC Comics, Barry Allen has assembled a following of fans that rivals any superhero alive. Remarkably, Barry’s popularity remained extremely high even after he died during Crisis on Infinite Earths. 

As The Flash, Barry is capable of doing anything faster than anyone around him. This means that he heals and moves quicker than most. Because he moves so quickly, he can become intangible through vibration, manipulate time, travel through time, cause lightning and energy to release from his body, and read and understand the world around him better than most.

Barry isn’t only one of the greatest superheroes with blonde hair, but he’s also one of the greatest superheroes of all time.

2. Invisible Woman

History of Invisible Woman

In the early history of Invisible Woman, she was merely a superhero that could turn herself invisible. Nothing more and nothing less. As she’s aged, Sue has learned and gained more control over her abilities. In addition to being able to turn herself invisible, Sue can also turn objects or others invisible. She is able to affect up to 40,000 cubic feet of volume in this manner. Unlike normal retinas, Sue’s retinas estimate the value of shapes based on the reflection of cosmic rays. If that’s confusing, understand that she can see invisible objects and other invisible people. She can also make objects or people that are invisible, visible. 

Sue also possesses the ability of forcefields generation. More than just being able to create them, she can cause them to expand or contract at will. In simple terms, she can cause them to explode and/or cause physical damage to her target. Sue is able to mold her fields into invisible shapes and the like. This means that she’s able to make weapons as big as a building or as small as a child’s toy. Finally, she is able to shield herself from a few forms of psychic attack. She does this by sending out an invisible force from her body that kind of acts like a radar.

Basically, Sue Storm transformed herself from a bit player into one of the most powerful women in comics. As one of the most powerful women in comics, the Invisible Woman is easily one of the greatest superheroes who are blonde.

1. Captain America

Captain America 1

What hasn’t already been said about Captain America?

I mean, he was the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a decade, has appeared on everything from lunchboxes to socks, has an origin that a toddler can recite, and is the leader of the Avengers.

Although his impressive set of abilities could easily land him on any list ever created, they aren’t the reason he’s here. Captain America is the quintessential good guy. He’s always trying to find a way to do what’s right for those around him…even if it comes at a personal loss. 

Just look at Civil War. 

He stood against superhero registration because he believed that his friends shouldn’t have to give up their secret identities. As a result, he and his closest friends came to blows and nearly destroyed one another. Where he proved his ability to do what’s right happened was when he realized the fighting caused more harm than good. As a result, he turned himself over to the authorities and ended the war.

Captain America is everything that a superhero should be. He’s kind, cares about those around him, puts others before himself, and isn’t afraid to die for what he believes. It’s these reasons that land him on this list of superheroes with blonde hair.

And that’s it. The top 10 superheroes with blonde Hair. What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Who would make your superheroes with blonde hair list?
