The comic book genre has been dominated by men since years now. However, in recent years we have seen various female superheroes stealing the limelight. For instance, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman came out as a powerful audience-winning film.
With MCU dropping Captain Marvel next year while DC coming up with the sequel to Wonder Woman and Margot Robbie starrer Birds of Prey, next year is going to be full of female-led superhero films. Today we will tell you about 7 most powerful superheroes ever adapted on screen.
Chloe Bennet’s Quake aka Daisy Johnson on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD has matured from a hacker an agent, and later becoming a powerful Inhuman hero. Quake is now not only a fan-favourite but also powerful enough to be called “Destroyer of Worlds.”
6. Sue Storm
Sue Storm aka Invisible Woman played by Jessica Alba in 2005’s Fantastic Four is also a good example of powerful female heroes. A member of the Fantastic Four team, Storm has the power of invisibility and create force-field projections.
It has also been hinted that this is just the surface of the extent of her powers.
5. Scarlet Witch
Wanda Maximoff was brought from Fox’s mutant list to the MCU and came to be known as Scarlet Witch. She is an expert at telekinesis and levitation, and can even create reality warps and force fields.
The character played by Elizabeth Olsen onscreen is an extremely powerful combat, as we’ve seen in Age of Ultron, Civil War and Infinity War. We have to wait and see if the Disney-Fox merger means anything more for her. M
4. Jean Grey
Undeniably, one of the most powerful mutants in the Marvel Universe, Grey has almost unlimited telekinesis and telepathic powers, which can even beat those of Professor Charles Xavier.
The first three films saw Famke Janssen playing the role, and her powers till that point were limitless. These came from the Phoenix Force, which is an extraterrestrial force that inhibits her and yearns to break free. Jean Grey will be returning in 2019’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
Until now, we’ve seen a few versions of DC’s Supergirl though its best adaption is that of Melissa Benoist on The CW television series. It’s not only true to the comic books but also possesses superhuman endurance, strength, invulnerability, ice breath, heat vision and of course, flight.
2. Captain Marvel
We haven’t seen Captain Marvel in live-action before, but with her arrival teased in Infinity War, along with the recently released trailer, it’s safe to say that she is going to be really strong. In fact, she is THE MOST powerful character in the MCU. And this isn’t us claiming, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
Her real name is Carol Danvers and she possesses really extensive cosmic powers. While Feige didn’t dive deep into the details, we hope that she is similar to her comic book version.
1. Wonder Woman
Princess Diana is probably one of the oldest and most popular female superheroes in history. She has been a constant symbol of hope, strength and justice since the 1940’s. The character was first portrayed on television by Lynda Carter and was later played by Gal Gadot in BvS: Dawn Of Justice, before appearing in her own standalone film, Wonder Woman.
She has faced Superman himself and surprisingly, came out without a single scratch. Her speed, strength and resilience make her most powerful female superhero we’ve seen onscreen.
