Since its formation in 1963, X-Men have always had a wide variety of damsels who filled up and livened the pages of X-Men comics and our lives. Even though it was a vague contradiction, given the title of the comics. Every new issue brought with itself one or two new damsels who would steal your heart in a wink of an eye and they sure as hell did not leave out even a shred of evidence establishing that the womenfolk in X-Men are smart, strong, and independent women, just our feminine readers. They are often credited to lending major firepower to the X-Men cause or sometimes even leading an entire team to battle like Storm. Through the decades we have witnessed a different style of clothing and hairstyles donned by our beloved superheroines and has made us fall for them all over again. Here is a list of the most stunning women of the X-Men team.
Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock is one of the most stunning and badass X-Men characters, that one would come across. She can focus her psionic powers to create a pure energy-based Katana or a crossbow, which she wields with intense ferocity as she was trained as a ninja by the organization called the Hand. Psylocke also can kinetically charge any weapon by using psionic energy and when the weapon is charged, it glows a bright purple. Along with her powers, Psylocke is also a pilot and a spy and has carried out numerous assassination missions during her numerous escapades through her Marvel journey.
Emma Frost is an Omega level telepath right up there with Professor X and Magneto with looks that can kill. Frost’s telepathic abilities go beyond any rationale, using her telepathic powers she can instill or extract information from the enemy or even disable an enemy’s mutant powers or completely shut down his/her body without ever needing to even break a sweat. Another interesting ability that makes Emma Frost one of the meanest damsels out there is her ability to change her body into a diamond. This ability allows Emma to deflect bullets and any other projectiles hurled at her as the organic diamond body offers her durability and enhanced strength, but the impenetrable diamond casing also lowers her telepathic abilities.
Rogue is one of the most beautiful X-Men characters to exist in the X-Men storyline Though in her earlier escapades she was working with Mystique, eventually, she realized her true calling and joined X-Men after that. Rogue’s power gives her the ability to temporarily steal another mutant’s power employing touch. She has been shown to make the likes of Captain Marvel & Captain America bite the dust and even pawn off wolverine’s healing ability. Because of her powers, Rogue is required to cover her hands and any part of a body which if contacted by fellow members may cast them powerless and cause temporary amnesia. The only downside to this power is that it has a time limit and as time progresses, Rogue loses this obtained power and the original user is restored of his natural abilities and memories.
Jean Elaine Grey is one of the most gorgeous and powerful characters of the X-Men comics, she has been known to surpass even omega 4 level mutants like Professor X and Magneto. In her childhood days, she was contacted by Professor X who took Jean under his tutelage and built psychic barriers in Jean’s mind to suppress her latent telepathic and telekinetic powers, but later in an incident, she absorbs the floating remains of the dark phoenix and that is when her latent powers resurface and along with the power of Dark Phoenix on her side transforms into an Omega class Level 5 mutant surpassing even the most ancient mutant Apocalypse to become the strongest mutant in the X-Men storyline.
Another beautiful lady from the X-Men series and the most majestic of sorts is another powerful mutant character in the X-Men universe. She is like all the Greek gods put in one, literally. The literal reference of her power is about her mutant abilities to be able to control the weather with pinpoint accuracy. Strom can wield lightning bolts from the sky, summon tornados from the heavens, and can be an embodiment of mother nature if need be. She is the right hand to Professor Xavier and many a time a leader to the group of mutants which include wolverine who can be a lot stubborn at times.
Wanda Maximoff is an embodiment of super magic and beauty. Her abilities as the user of Chaos magic enables her to fabricate numerous hexes which can create and give rise to alternate realities. She has been known to employ her hexes not just on an area, but rather the entire planet of the earth in the series of a story about Earth-616. Wanda can fabricate reality up to her liking while controlling people captured in her illusion and keep it up for as long, she deems or wishes for it to go on. There have been multiple theories about the origin of her powers, some believe that she was bestowed upon with the power of chaos Magic by the demon named Chthon and later during her teens was experimented upon by Stucker and his team using the mind stone, which may have done further damage to her emotional stability whilst making her extremely strong.
Laura Kinney is the biological daughter of Wolverine and Dr. Sarah Kinney. In an attempt to salvage what remained of the Weapon X program, Dr. Martin Stutter recruits a renowned mutant geneticist, Dr. Sarah Kinney. During the course of a series of events Dr. Kinney, I was forced to act as a surrogate and gives birth to X-23. In another series of unfortunate events, Dr. Kinney is wounded beyond repair and tells X-23 about her origins while handing her photos of Professor X, Xavier Institute and Wolverine.
Probably the only X-Men character to have fans across the globe even with her blue skin. Raven Darkholme has the power to shapeshift into any person or animal at her own free will. She can at a cellular level change the construction of her genetic cells to transform into the form of other humans or animals.
Katherine “Kitty” Pryde is the youngest damsel of the X-Men universe with her intellectual and intelligence surpassing the level of college-going teens. In addition to that Kitty could go through stuff like walls, cars, etc. She even could make any object intangible.
