We don’t know whether Spider-Woman actually wears a suit because she looks so curvy that it seems like she has a painted body. Alright! Enough of the picturization.So today we are counting down on three male superheroes and their female versions with the stories behind them.

She is the clone daughter of Wolverine who also possesses the healing power like him, but lack the complete adamantium-made skeleton. And recently, in the trailer of Logon 3, the little girl is going to make its cinematic appearance. Oh! That was one easter egg. Oops!

2. Black Panther and Shuri
Created by super-legendary Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther made his first appearance in Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966. And he simply nailed in Captain America: Civil War and was a scene-stealer. As big as he has a larger fan base, his sister Shuri gained quite a good traction from the comic book fans. King T’Chaka’s daughter and the youngest sibling, Shuri was jealous of his brother for being the Black Panther and for not being bestowed by the God of Panther after Chaka’s debilitation. She later blessed with the powers and the world got a new Black Panther.
