The 20 greatest women in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

2 of 16

20. Sif

Sif didn’t have a lot of screen time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, she made an impact whenever she was on screen. She helped Thor escape Asgard in Thor: Dark World. Without her help, Malekith would have taken over. She’s also appeared on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and showed how great of a fighter she is. A personal favorite moment was when Thor was talking about how he helped all of his allies and, when he got to Sif, she proudly announced that she made her own way. Hopefully, we will get more of her in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future. Especially with New Asgard being a thing and Loki’s show on Disney Plus coming up.

19. Gamora

Gamora is one of the most dangerous women in the galaxy. Considering how she was raised on top of her superhuman strength, it makes sense. While she hasn’t been used close to her full potential, she’s been the bad-@$$ we’ve wanted her to be. It isn’t just the fighting that puts her on this list. Despite her upbringing, Gamora was strong enough not to be brainwashed by Thanos’ teachings. Even after her sister, Nebula, tried to kill her, she kept trying to save her and show Nebula that she loves her. It’s not punching and kicking that always makes a person tough. Things like compassion also display true strength.
