At present, there are huge numbers of female characters in comic books who are absolutely marvelous. Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Wonder Woman and numerous more stand all alone. We also have comparable characters like Batgirl, She-Hulk, and Spider-Gwen who frequently overshadow the male characters after whom they’re designed. Nonetheless, there are always those few characters that certainly miss the mark. In the instances of these characters, they’re just knockoffs of male comic book heroes and villains.
They’re simply powerless endeavors by publishers to shake things up a little. “Nobody thinks about Alpha Flight? Didn’t Vindicator have a spouse? Place her in the costume!” Taking an idea that worked the first time with a male character and slapping that thought onto a female character is annoying. Many times, these characters were way better before they were compelled to wear a replica of a fan most loved costume. They merit better! They merit their own particular characters and powers and not simply a format obtained from a successful concept.
Let’s hope that there are some innovative comic makers out there who can revive this diverse group, restoring them with imaginative portrayals and connecting with stories. Until then, these are the female comic book versions of male heroes that are a proof of their creators’ powerlessness to make engaging heroes and villains of both genders.
1. Lady Deadpool
She is an immaculate example of a gender-swapped form of a character no one needs. She is similar to Wade Wilson in every respect. The greatest advantage to Lady Deadpool existing is that she offers ladies cosplayers an in-progression choice that doesn’t include showing a ton of skin and absurd objectification from mouth-breathing convention participants.
2. Red She-Hulk
Betty Ross is the Hulk’s long time off-and-on love interest who was given her own gamma-illuminated form. Nevertheless, her uniqueness never developed and she generally could not hope to compare to the more well-known She-Hulk.
