The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.
Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable.
Nebula has always been an interesting character since her debut in Guardians of the Galaxy. She was only the second female villain to appear in the MCU next to Iron Man 3‘s Maya Hansen and she was kind of really cool. Now she’ll return in Avengers 4 and I couldn’t be more excited.
Valkyrie is awesome, pure and simple. The Thor series desperately needed a major heroine equal to Thor and Valkyrie is that 100%. I like that not only is she tough but she doesn’t play by any rules whatsoever. She doesn’t bow before Thor when she sees him or grovel at his feet. She zaps him and honestly doesn’t care that much about him, at least at first. That’s definitely an upgrade from the infatuated Earth scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman.) 🙂
