Did you know that female superheroes and supervillains only make up 26.7% of all comic characters in Marvel and DC. The comic industry has been scrutinized over its distinct lack of female power and we are please to say things are changing.
How did we decide which female characters were the best?
We based our decision on the character’s back story and how interesting they are to us. We also considered strength and fearlessness. This is just our opinion, we fully expect other people to have different favorites, even totally disagree with our top 10.
