Captain Marvel will grace our screens in March. To celebrate another strong woman in the world of superheroes, it’s time to look at the 25 most empowering female superheroes of all time.
There’s no doubt that we’re looking forward to Captain Marvel in March. Whether you want to see the comics come to life or you’re ready for another strong (physically and mentally) female on the screen, you’ve got your wish. She’s just one of many empowering female superheroes right now.
It’s easy to overlook some of the female superheroes in movies, on TV, and in the comics. Because they’re not physically strong, they’re often viewed as lesser than their male counterparts. One thing that’s forgotten is the mental or emotional strength, which can often take much more energy than physical, especially in the long-term.
Whether you’re looking at the comics, delving into the Arrowverse on the CW, or even looking at the movie incarnations over the years, there are strengths that we can take from so many characters. Yes, Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman will come to mind, but what about the likes of Mantis, Felicity Smoak, and Scarlet Witch?
Empowerment is more than just physical strength. It’s about looking at the personality, doing what’s right, or even a strong resolve. There’s an element of character development and intelligence, as well as being unwavering in beliefs.
With all that in mind, I’m looking at the various characters over the years. As I’ve not read every single comic, some of the versions I’m focusing on the movie or TV show characters, taking the empowering storylines we’ve been delivered through them. Here are the 25 most empowering female superheroes of all time.
