List of The Sexiest Comic Book Female Characters In Movies! Who's The Sexiest?

Updated on November 1, 2018

There's been so many actresses to don the costumes and step into the role of some of the sexiest comic book female characters in the movies. Whether it be Marvel characters or DC super heroines, it seems the fans love to see their favorite female super heroes in the movies.

With the likes of Jennifer Garner as Elektra, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm The Invisible Woman, Halle Berry as Catwoman and X-Men's Storm, and Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, there's no shortage of actresses who desire to slip into the role and kick some butt as some of the most popular female comic book heroes or villains in the movies.

It also seems that Hollywood can't get enough of these super tough women as well. With the superhero and comic book buzz going strong in Hollywood, it appears that we'll no doubt see many new actresses take on new comic character roles in the near future.

Alright, though, let's not get ahead of ourselves here. Let's take a look at the past female comic characters to come to life on the big screen and find out who's the sexiest.

Remember, this isn't about who can kick who's butt, or who captured the comic character the best, or who's movie was the best. This is just who you think was the sexiest in that role and costume.

Also, this poll isn't about TV Series either. Just the female comic characters in the movies here, and no direct to video movies either. We're talking about the big screen.

Okay, one more rule also: It has to be a female superhero character. Sure Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert in X-Man First Class was undeniably sexy, but the character in the comic wasn't a superhero, nor was she an FBI agent like the movie depicted.

Let's look at the nominees of female characters in the movies who were based on a comic book superhero or villain and find out just who is the sexiest! Here are the nominees!

Halle Berry As Storm In X-Men The Last Stand
Halle Berry As Storm In X-Men The Last Stand

Halle Berry As Storm

Halle Berry stepping into the role of Ororo Munroe, otherwise known as the famed X-Men Storm, was by far a huge role to take on. Storm is one of the most popular and beloved female comic characters in the X-Men as well as the Marvel Universe.

I remember first seeing Storm in the X-Men comics. It was during the character's Mohawk phase, and I thought she was ultra cool. I had no objections as a comic fan of Halle Berry playing the role of one of the most popular mutants in comics.

No doubt that she's incredibly gorgeous and sexy without the costume, but in her X-Men costume, can we say...WOWZA!

I was not disappointed in her portrayal as well as the sexiness she brought to the character in the X-Men movies. How many are?

Famke Janssen as Phoenix in X-Men 3 The Last Stand

Famke Janssen As Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix

Can anyone deny that former Dutch fashion model turned actress, Famke Janssen is an exquisite beauty? No doubt that her look as the beloved X-Men comic character, Jean Grey and Dark Phoenix, was extremely sexy in all the X-Men films.

Okay, she wouldn't have been my first choice to play the role of Jean Grey. It's true that she doesn't really look like the comic character nor do I imagine her face when I think of actresses to play the comic character.

To be honest, I first thought that Kirsten Dunst looked more like a Marvel Girl to me in her role as Mary Jane in the Spidey flicks. Notice I did say Marvel Girl, which means an earlier Jean Grey in the X-Men comics when she went by that name.

However, the X-Men movies did major timeline shifts, and the Jean Grey portrayed in the films was an older version. Still, Famke Janssen did look fantastic in the X-Men costume get up throughout the entire movie franchise.

I'm sure male comic fans had a hard time wiping off the drool while watching Janssen as the X-Men's red headed bombshell Jean Grey!

Uma Thurman As Poison IVy in Batman Forever

Uma Thurman As Poison Ivy

Uma, Uma, Uma! My goodness! Speaking of another red headed bombshell in the world of comics.

Okay, I'll admit that I didn't like the Batman & Robin movie. I actually think it's one of the worst comic book movies ever made - a star- studded dud! Nevertheless, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy made that movie all worthwhile.

I cannot deny that she looked amazingly sexy in that green skin tight Poison Ivy costume. God, if all villains looked like that, I'd actually don tights, a mask, a cape, and go around fighting crime.

Batman's a lucky guy! However, then again, he does have to deal with villains like Bane, Two Face, and that whacked out Joker guy, too. Oh well, having a crack at chasing down Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy would make dealing with those clowns all worthwhile.

Then again, there's also Catwoman, too! Batman - the luckiest crime fighter in tights!

Michelle Pfeiffer As Catwoman in Batman Returns

Michelle Pfeiffer As Catwoman

Can we say purrrrrr-fect! Yum! Despite what I think about the portrayal of her Catwoman, Michelle Pfeiffer looked pretty damn hot as the frisky feline who continues to make Batman's heart beat like a jackhammer. Well, he's not the only one.

I'm sure a lot of comic fan boys forgot to breathe when they first laid eyes on Michellle as one of the most classic and iconic characters in comic book history. So is it any surprise that she's on this list as one of the most sexiest comic book female characters in the movies?

Not really. The real question, however, is if Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman is the sexiest female comic character in the movies?

For that we'll have to see, so make sure you vote in the poll after all the nominees. She's got quite a bit of competition.

Jessica Alba as Sue Storm
Jessica Alba as Sue Storm

Jessica Alba As Sue Storm The Invisible Woman

Okay, Jessica Alba really didn't fit my image of Sue Storm when I thought of the comic character being brought to the big screen. I actually thought she didn't look like the character at all.

Still, I can't say that she didn't look damn good in the famous Fantastic Four blue costume. Sure, there are many other actresses that would've looked absolutely smoking in the Fantastic Four costume that actually resemble the Invisible Woman character in the comics.

For some odd reason those other blonde haired, blue-eyed beauties weren't cast for the role and Jessica Alba was. Is Jessica Alba's Sue Storm the sexiest female comic super hero to ever be captured on the big screen?

If you think so, don't be shy! Vote for her!

Halle Berry As Catwoman

Halle Berry As Catwoman

The fact that Halle Berry is on this list twice for playing two female superhero roles puts her in the cool category in my book. Other than her ultra sexy role as Storm in the X-Men movies, Halle Berry also played the sassy feline Catwoman!

Sure, this movie wasn't all that great. It's actually on my list of worst comic book movies ever. I'm still wary about how Anne Hathaway is gonna portray one of my favorite female comic characters in Chris Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises!

Nevertheless, we aren't talking about whether the movie was great or the portrayal of the comic character. We're talking about how damn sexy Halle Berry was as Catwoman?

Personally, I think her costume and portrayal of Catwoman was pretty sexy. Yeah, she looked sexy enough to make my testosterone levels go up to super human levels.

Jennifer Garner as Elektra
Jennifer Garner as Elektra

Jennifer Garner As Elektra

Okay, there's some fans that think Jennifer Garner is a babe, and that she did look super sexy in the Elektra movie that should've never came out. Yes, the movie was so terrible, I stopped watching it about halfway through, and it was free on TV! Yikes!

I thought the choice of her being cast as the popular assassin that first appeared in the Daredevil comics had more to do with Hollywood politics than her actually looking like the character or even being the right actress for the role. Elektra has raven hair and dark eyes and more of a dark Eastern European look.

Italian actress Monica Belluci from the movie Shoot Em' Up, starring Clive Owen, would've been a more ideal choice. Even though the comic character is from Greek origins. Oh, well, we got stuck with the All-American, and too American, look of Jennifer Garner.

Was Garner sexy as Elektra? Perhaps, but is the sexiest comic book female character in the movies? That's for you to decide!

Carla Gugino as Sally Jupiter/Silk Spectre I in Watchmen
Carla Gugino as Sally Jupiter/Silk Spectre I in Watchmen

Carla Gugino As Sally Jupiter/Silk Spectre I

Oh, my, God! Carla Gugino is just plain sexy and gorgeous. I don't care what costume she is in, and I'm surprised that no one in the biz has ever thought of her as a potential Wonder Woman? Hello?

If that ever happened and she got the role of Wonder Woman, I would die from loss of blood. Seriously! I've liked Gugino ever since I saw her in Jet Li's The One, as well as a host of other films like Sin City.

However, her as Sally Jupiter, Silk Spectre I, in the Watchmen was just too much. Even with the goofy retro 50s hair, she made my pulse sprint double time in that Sally Jupiter costume.

Well, the costume is pretty sexy as well, but how Carla Gugino wears it is beyond words. Yes, it's hard to actually describe, and the only word that comes to mind is: Sexy!

Okay, a few others do come to mind as well, but this isn't an R rated hub here. No doubt Carla Gugino's Silk Spectre is one of the sexiest female comic characters on screen! She more than deserves to be on here, but does her Silk Spectre deserve the title of "Sexiest"?

Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II in Watchmen

Malin Akerman As Silk Spectre II

What male didn't go Coo Coo for Malin Akermann when they first saw her in that tight fitting outfit in the Watchmen? With an outfit like that, no wonder Silk Spectre can go out fighting bad guys. The bad boys are too distracted by her outfit to put up much a fight.

Besides, what male in their right mind would run away from that? She's like a male criminal magnet. They all run towards, making it just that much easier to round up some bad guys.

I say that Malin Akermann as Silk Spectre is, perhaps, the sexiest female comic character ever on screen. Sure, her character might not be as iconic as the others on this list, but you have to admit the look she captured as Silk Spectre II is sleek, sexy, and absolutely alluring.

And not exactly in that order either! Okay I forgot a word - Stunning!

January Jones as Emma Frost The White Queen in X-Men First Class

January Jones As Emma Frost

Emma Frost, The White Queen of the Hellfire Club, and from the pages of The X-Men finally got her sexy on screen debut in the form of January Jones. Even if you didn't much care for X-Men First Class, you have to admit January Jones looked amazing as Emma Frost.

Believe me, it's not an easy role to step into. The character in the comic books is ultra sexy already and one of the most popular female villains and heroes in the X-Men realm. Okay, in the Marvel realm. No, wait! In the entire comic book realm!

I think January Jones looked the part exceptionally well, and looked absolutely stunning in the costume. I'm sure there aren't too many complaints on that regard. If you think January Jones as Emma Frost is the sexiest female comic character in the movies just put your endorsement next to her name in the poll and we'll see how she fares against her other sexy colleagues.

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Iron Man 2 and The Avengers movie

Scarlett Johansson As Black Widow

First appearing in Iron Man 2, it seems that Scarlett Johansson has made quite an impression as the Black Widow. The popular Marvel Comic character and once Russian super spy will be once again hitting the silver screen in the soon to be released Avengers movie this Friday!

Can I get a HELL YEAH?

Her sleek and tight black outfit looks amazing on her, or should I say she looks amazing in? Oh, well, both statements would be correct!

The character of Natalia Romanova, aka The Black Widow, is one of the most popular female comic characters, and this Russian bombshell super spy has to look just as sexy on the screen as she does in the comic.

I think Scarlett, indeed, pulls off the Black Widow look quite well. I'm sure there are those who will argue about that. However, does she have what it takes to crowned the sexiest female character in the movies based off a comic book superhero?

I don't know about you, but I think she has a damn good shot! We shall soon see!

So There's The Nominees!

So there you have it! The nominees of the sexiest female comic characters to ever hit the big screen. Yep, there's quite a lot of good choices up there, and it may be hard to choose from.

However, this isn't a timed test. No tick tock sound of a clock winding down so relax. It's all just for fun, anyway. Only one can be the ultimate sexiest female comic character in the movies! Cast your vote for your favorite and let's see who takes the crown!

      I see what you're saying glimmer515, but Michelle's Catwoman, as written, was extremely far from the comic book character. Her character was portrayed as a psycho killer, while Catwoman in the comics is just a jewelry thief, who uses seduction and manipulation on Batman.

      I have to disagree that Michelle is the best Catwoman, only because that character she portrayed wasn't really Catwoman. It was just some crazy dressed in a cat suit, and that's far from the character. I'm not saying her acting wasn't good. It was, but as far as the character and how she was written in that movie, it was the worst Catwoman translation from page to screen.

      Anyway, back to the original subject, this about whose the sexiest female comic characters in the movies, not whose the best.

      Did someone seriously say Halle Berry was the best Catwoman???? I could die from laughter!! Michelle was leaps and bounds better than Halle in the role in every way, as well as every other catwoman! Anne Hathaway, Julie Newmar, Eartha Kitt...... just to name a few!!

      Finally! Thanks DS Duby...I was wondering when someone was gonna vote for Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre. Actually, it was a tie between her and Carla Gugino for my vote. I couldn't decided on which, but finally went with Carla.

      Good choice, and you're absolutely right...Malin was stunning as Silk Spectre II!

      Heya Steve...somehow I knew you'd pick Michelle's Catwoman, but yes, Malin Ackerman was great in Watchmen...I'm having a hard time deciding who I think is the sexiest female comic character in the movies myself.

      Can't wait to see the Avengers movie as well, and Scarlett as Black Widow is who I may vote on. It's a tie between Silk Spectre and Black Widow for me.

      Thanks for commenting, voting, and the votes up...always good to hear from you and rahul.

    • rabbit75 profile imageAUTHOR

      mmmm they're all sexy ladies, but I'll vote for Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman from Batman Returns. I remember the Penguin's comment when he sees her on the bed... no I won't repeat it here. :)

      Of recent years Malin Ackerman was great in Watchmen but I'll go with Scarlet Johanssonsson's Black Widow, looking forward to seeing her in action again in The Avengers.

      Voted Up and Awesome.

      Great Hub!
