I hope that there are a lot of fans of comics among our readers and that’s why I have decided to offer you this post featuring the hottest female comic book characters. Some of them are super villainesses, the others are heroes, but all of them are fascinating and play the key roles in the comics stories. They have become interesting for us due to their powers, but most of them are portrayed as average women. The superhero concepts of female characters feature the female beings with supernatural powers and unusual strength that correspond to all the demands of the cool comic books. Along with the well-known female characters you will find their atypical representatives and even some forgotten heroes here. Of course, there are a lot of female characters, but I want to share only a part of them in today’s post. Hope, that you will find this part as the exciting one. Let’s start!
