Not ur Typical FEMALE SuperHero List!!!

Updated on August 17, 2010

Everyone has the List of Female Super Heroes with your typical well known and popular ladies like Wonder Women, Super Girl, and Bat Girl. Which don't get me wrong will always have a special place in my heart. Here are a few of the not so well known super ladies who for whatever reason have never got the attention they deserve! Who Needs Men when you have these ladies!!

Barb Wire

Her story starts out in Steel Harbor, a bombed-out wreck of a town, thrill-junkie Barbara Kopetski - better known as "Barb Wire" - is a bar owner and part-time bounty hunter (in order to pay for her bar, The Hammerhead). She is skilled in many areas, but excels in combat-related abilities. While she has a brother and several allies, she is essentially a loner, although this is something which is uncomfortable for her to think about.

There was an ill received movie made based on the comic starring Pamela Anderson which proved to be more porn star than oscar nominee


She-Ra is introduced in the animated movie The Secret of the Sword as Force Captain Adora, an agent of the Evil Horde. She discovers that she is the long-lost sister of He-Man, having been stolen by the Horde's leader, Hordak, as a baby. She is granted the Sword of Protection, which parallels He-Man's Sword of Power, gaining the power to transform into She-Ra, her secret identity.


Cheetara is the sexy female in a all male crime fighting group called the Thundercats! We follow the adventures of the eponymous team of heroes, cat-like humanoid aliens from the planet of Thundera. The series pilot begins with the dying Thundera meeting its end at the hands of evil mutants, forcing the ThunderCats to flee their home world, but before long, the Mutants have tracked them down to Third Earth.

Lara Croft

This Very sexy lady is  presented as a beautiful, intelligent, and athletic archaeologist-adventurer who ventures into ancient, hazardous tombs and ruins around the world. Created by Toby Gard during his employment at British developer Core Design, the character first appeared in the 1996 video game Tomb Raider.

Thanks to Angelina Jolie this sexy archaeologist was brought to life with perfection in not just one but 2 incredibly hot films!


Dawnstar is her real name (she has no Legion code name), and she is from Starhaven, a planet colonized by Indians abducted from Earth by an unknown alien race in the 13th Century. Her name is derived from the appearance on Earth of the planet Venus, the "morning star," which is why she wears an eight-pointed star ornament on her forehead.

Dawnstar and her people are of Anasazi Indian heritage. Starhavenites have pairs of large white-feathered wings that grow out of their upper backs, the result of genetic engineering by the unknown alien race that resettled them and triggered their metagenes.

She Hulk

She-Hulk has been a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Heroes For Hire, Defenders, Fantastic Force, and S.H.I.E.L.D. A highly skilled lawyer, she has served as legal counsel to various superheroes on numerous occasions.Her cousin is Bruce Banner, better known as The Incredible Hulk.


Selene frequently demonstrates superhuman physical abilities. She uses superhuman strength to pin Michael against a wall several feet off the ground, performs spectacular leaps, and strikes her enemies with tremendous force. She kills younger Vampires with just a few blows. She takes a shotgun blast to the abdomen without flinching and manhandles four police officers as if they were rag dolls. Basically she was badass chick! Not only that but she is portrayed but the incredibly sexy Kate Beckinsale!

Spider Women

 I found a lot of interesting facts about Spider women in that she was done and redone tons of times, Spider-Woman is the codename of several fictional characters in the Marvel Comics universe. An earlier "Spider-Woman" was published by Harry "A" Chesler Comics in 1944; a non-superpowered crime-fighter named Helen Goddard made her first and only appearance in the Golden Age comic book Major Victory #1. Another Spiderwoman was in Spidey Super Stories #11 (story 3), although that is not official canon.

Spider-Woman was also the title of three past and one current comic book series published by Marvel Comics. The first was published from April 1978 through June 1983, the second, which was a limited series, was published from November 1993 through February 1994, and the third was published from July 1999 through December 2000. The current series—featuring Jessica Drew, the original Spider-Woman—was recently released

Thor Girl

Thor Girl possesses the conventional physical attributes of the Asgardian gods. She is immune to all Earthly diseases and is highly durable, able to withstand attacks which would destroy an ordinary human. She also will heal at incredible speeds due to her godly life force. Thor Girl also possesses superhuman strength which rivals the most powerful of the gods and her now Asgardian-level metabolism provides her with far greater than human endurance in all physical activities. Additionally, like most Asgardians, she is near-ageless with a lifetime which may stretch into several millennia.


The heroine is considered a vampire, since she needs blood to survive and has many of the typical vampiric powers, including increased strength and reflexes, shapeshifting into a bat, and a mesmeric stare. She is not prone to the group's traditional weaknesses, such as daylight, holy water, garlic, or crosses. She cannot, most importantly, transform others into vampires. She does not attack people to drink their blood, except occasionally when she herself is attacked. She is almost always scantily clad in her signature red thong suit with a white collar and wearing shiny black thigh-high boots.

      That's a cool pic of She-Ra. I don't know if she ever got her props. He-man has been re-made a couple of times, plus there was a live action movie, but She-Ra has been sort of left in the dust, except for the DVD release in recent years of her tv series.

      Hmm...interesting. It's quite an eclectic list. I like it. I had the thought you were going to go with some more esoteric characters, so it was nice you had included some mainstream characters in your list.

      Well done.
