Chelsea here and I just want to say we are SO sorry for not posting yesterday. We had a long busy day and it totally slipped our minds! But we are going to redeem ourselves today.
Since I have proclaimed my love and appreciation for female comic characters, I am excited about this post. Plus Dylan isn’t going to be putting in his opinion on this topic because he is a sexist pig. No, not really. He just couldn’t come up with three picks so we are just leaving him out.
#3 is Batgirl, which you probably could have guessed because of my apparent obsession with Gotham City and everything around it. I have no reason, she doesn’t have outstanding powers. Honestly I just like the idea of a female fighting along side of a male in harmony. It showed a lot of advancement for the females in the time of day it was written. Feminist may not have liked it but I think the story line just works well.
#2 After doing our Fan Cast for the Teen Titans, I was really intrigues with Starfire. She’s taking my top two pick for so many reasons. She’s a freaking alien! Not an ugly creepy one, like The Martian Man Hunter, she’s an attractive alien. She has the whole Superman type story because she doesn’t fit in with humans but she overcomes it and turns into a hero. Starfire’s relationship with Dick Grayson is also something that caught my eye, because I love Robin. Just the fact that she’s a Teen Titan makes her so adorable for so kick a** at the same time! She converts ultraviolet light and converts in into energy, where she can use the energy to fly. She can also create ‘Starbolts’ with the energy she generates from the sun. So basically she has infinite amounts of power, as long as the sun doesn’t die.
#1 Can I get a testament that Wonder Woman is the greatest and most powerful female DC character?! If you know me at all, you know of my love for The Amazonian Princess. Because of Greek Mythological ancestry I immediately grew partial to her. The daughter of Zeus and the blessing of each god and goddess bestowed upon her. She was destined for greatness from the moment she was born. Diana has so many powers I can’t even remember them all. Super strength, agility, super speed up to 60 MPH or more, ESP, astral projection, telepathy (with or without the Mental Radio), and mental control over the electricity in her body. Those are just a few, of course these all varied depending on the comic and the time period. She also has the lasso of truth which is BRILLIANT. How many other super heroes can make their villains tell the truth?? I won’t rant any longer because you’re probably bored already.
But there you have it. My top three DC Heroin’s. I really want to know who your favorites are, so don’t be shy to comment and let me know what’s on your mind! Thanks so much for reading!
See ya, BYE! :)
