As a comic book fan, we can say that this is the golden age for any comic book fans. As there are a lot of comic book characters making their appearance on big screen. This year DC is all set to release its most ambitious superhero movie Justice League, based on the most iconic characters of comic books. There have been powerful men in DC universe but its long-time roster of strong women is still the most impressive. Here is a list of contenders for the strongest and most powerful female character from DC.
Wonder Woman is one of the most powerful female characters in dc comics. Being the daughter of the god of thunder and one of three main founding members of JL. She is serving as a symbol of courage and power for all the women’s in the world for a long time. She is the Princess of Themyscira, an Amazonian goddess who was bestowed upon super-powers by the Greek gods in a particular Aphrodite who are the creators of Amazons. Since then she has mentally channeled her abilities and strengths to become a powerful being in DC universe.
Supergirl is the cousin of Superman. As she belongs to Krypton, like Superman, she also has powers same as that of him but her power levels are considered more than that of him. Kara Zor-El has superhuman strength, speed, heat vision, freeze breath and heightened senses. Along with the power of flight. She is more dangerous than Superman and put him down with ease in the TV series as well.
Mera first appeared in 1963 in Aquaman #1. She rules seven seas alongside Aquaman, as Queen of Seven Seas. She has powers as same as Aquaman, to bend the water and creatures living inside water to her will. She is also trained in combat and has fought bravely like a warrior.
Huntress is the most badass character in whole bat family as she is trained so vigorously, that she is willing to become the next Batman. She is immune to many poisons and famous for her archery. She can actually use bat-mobile better than Batman and can drive bikes better than any other character in any comic universe.
Vixen possesses the powers of the whole animal kingdom. She can harness the ability of any animal she can think of like the strength of a lion, the speed of a cheetah. She can even fight underwater as she can sprout the gills in seconds. She punishes those who harm Mother Nature. She has defeated Gorilla Grodd alongside Flash.
Hawkgirl was created by Gardner Fox, Dennis Neville, and Sheldon Moldoff, first appearing in Flash Comics #1. (1940). Hawkgirl and Hawkman both because of an effect of nth metal possess the power of Reincarnation, they ones killed can reincarnate their selves. She wields a mace and uses Nth Metal technology to fly.
Zatanna is easily the most powerful mystic in the entire DC Universe. She is truly the most powerful magician in Dc universe. She can manipulate elements of earth and people easily with magic. She kept her magical powers in control, though if her full powers are unleashed she will become the most dangerous and powerful being on this earth.
Raven is the daughter of human Angella Rothe and Demon Emperor Trigon. Raven can read minds and communicate with others with emotions, receiving them from others, perceiving what others think while they feel, she can teleport, and send out her Soul-Self, which can fight physically. She can manipulate objects and people with telekinesis. Her soul-self can act as well as act as her eyes and ears away from her body.
So who is the most powerful of them all? Wonder Woman has a weakness when it comes to piercing weapons and someone can turn her lasso against her, it’s next to impossible but has been done before. Supergirl can be easily contained using Kryptonite and related weapons. Queen Mera is a sea warrior but she is pretty weak when it comes to fighting on land. Vixen’s strength is entirely dependent on the object she is wearing, once it’s gone, she is nobody. Huntress is bad ass like Batman but she is no match to some of the powerful women in DC universe. Hawkgirl will forever be chased by Vandal Savage, she will be killed and resurrected.
The two women remaining are Raven and Zatanna.
Verdict: Zatanna wins as she is equivalent to Doctor Strange in terms of magical prowess. She is a powerful creature who can defeat anyone if she unleashes her true powers.
