#7 Ms. Marvel: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes


When Captain Marvel vacated the alias “Ms. Marvel,” Kamala Khan took the name. This isn’t Marvel’s replacement for Ms. Marvel (like what they’re doing with Captain America and Thor). Captain Marvel still exists in their universe, they’ve simply added a new hero to the mix. I would prefer that they used this method (building a… Read More #7 Ms. Marvel: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes

#6 Captain Marvel: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes


Captain Marvel is a super powerful female hitter for Marvel. Her powers originate from Kree technology. She has gone by quite of few names: Binary, Warbird, Ms Marvel, and now Captain Marvel.   Under her current title (written by Kelly Sue DeConnick), Captain Marvel doesn’t use her superpowers very often (aside from flight and super… Read More #6 Captain Marvel: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes

#3 Black Widow: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes


The Golden Age “Black Widow” Black Widow scored high on our Hardest-hitting Female Heroes post for a reason.

In Mystic Comics #4, August 1940, she was… Read More #3 Black Widow: Top Ten Hardest-hitting Female Heroes

I give Ms. Marvel: Generation Why five stars. This rating system is based on the five aspects of entertainment that make it good: Characters, Plot/Writing, Novelty (Innovation), the Fun Factor and Production/Art (Production/Acting for shows and movies). Characters Characters are one of the most important aspects of media. They make or break comic books, shows,… Read More Ms. Marvel: Vol. 3, Generation Why

Round Table: Marvel’s Women (Part 3), Peggy Carter and Pepper Potts


Gatto di Sangue: Last round table, we discussed Black Widow. After Black Widow, I would cite the next strongest female characters as Peggy Carter and Pepper Potts. Road-sine: In Mavel’s TV series, Agent Carter, you could see that she was a strong female character. She moves the plot forward, she does things, she actively contributes… Read More Round Table: Marvel’s Women (Part 3), Peggy Carter and Pepper Potts
