The superhero movies and television series are not new, they have been made since ages. Many actors have become immortal after portraying superhero characters in different films and television series. Like men, many women have also played superhero characters, but somehow some of them have been forgotten despite their incredible performance. Some actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Gal Gadot have changed the mindset of many people and have proved that a woman can also rock in the shoes of a superhero.
In this list, we will take you back in the time. You'll find amazing female stars from the past to present who have been kicking villains' asses in their superhero avatars. Another thing I can guarantee is that you already love the characters portrayed by these females. So, let us take a look at them.
Alicia Silverstone portrayed the famous character of DC Comics Batgirl in Batman and Robin that was released in 1997. Well, it is not easy for actresses in the costumes of Batgirl, but Alicia looked very comfortable and sexy.
Halle Berry has portrayed two superhero characters; one is the character of Storm in Marvel's X-Men series, and the other is the character of Catwoman in the 2004 movie, Catwoman. She looked perfect in both of them.
You might not know this, but there is already a film made on Supergirl that was released in 1984. Helen Slater's portrayal did not work as it should have, but she looked attractive in the attire of a superhero throughout the film.
Well, Gal Gadot does not need any introduction. She appeared in the most recent DC film, Wonder Woman and many even called it the best superhero movie ever made. Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman was loved by everyone and each sequence of the movie was perfect. The Israeli actress looked perfect in the film.
It is believed that Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman portrayal is the sexiest superhero portrayal by any female star and I bet that many of you will agree when you will watch the 1992's Batman Returns.
Julie Newmar is the Catwoman from the Batman television series that started in 1966. She modified her Catwoman costume herself, and it really looked hot on her.
To be the girlfriend of Cyclops and the crush of Wolverine, a woman needs to be very sexy. And Famke Janssen did that perfectly. She appeared in X-Men movie series (2000 - present) many times, but her guest appearance in movie, Wolverine, released in 2013 was the best.
No matter how many Fantastic Four film series have failed to draw crowd but everyone remembers the movie that was released in 2005 because Jessica Alba appeared in it as an Invisible Woman. I liked Jessica's leather suit in the movie.
Lynda Carter became synonymous of Wonder Woman in the 70s. She portrayed the character in three seasons of the television series titled 'Wonder Woman' that started on November 1, 1975.
Well, Jennifer Garner got two things while playing Elektra in Daredevil. First one is Ben Affleck as her husband in real life, and the other one is a separate film on the character Elektra that was released in 2005. The film was not successful, but she looked amazing in the red costume of Elektra.
Natasha Romanova or Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson has been the heart and soul of Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, for me she is the best female superhero, it is just an opinion which many of you might agree with.
Anne Hathaway's portrayal of Catwoman became popular because she did it in the most famous Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises (2011). Anne steals the spotlight with her first scene in the film, and we all loved it.
Rebecca Romijn started as Mystique in the X-Men series. This role was later taken over by Jennifer Lawrence in 2011. They both looked amazing in the films, but due to a great body and eyes, I'll say Jennifer had an edge over others.
Another recent portrayal of a superhero character, but this time it is Elizabeth Olsen who nailed it. In the film, Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) Elizabeth portrayed the role of Scarlet Witch who is a supervillain but later turns into a superhero.
Ellen Page's character was not big in the X-Men series. But she shot to limelight in the movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
