For a long time, comic books were all about the Supermans and Batmans of the world… There were very few female superheroes for young women to aspire to be like – but, everything has changed. Over the years, comic book companies such as DC and Marvel have been working hard to improve their collection of female crime fighters (and villains). With strong female characters such as Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn taking center stage, the DC Comics universe has expanded to include some rather incredible women over the years.
It seems as though every comic book company is fighting to have some of the best female characters in their movies nowadays. The most recent Wonder Woman movie broke box office records back in 2017, so what does Marvel have up its sleeve? We’re hoping it’s Lady Deadpool! From the heroes to the villains, and even the assistants that no Superman or Batman could be without, these women have proven they have what it takes to give the men a run for their money.
However, are they just as strong and powerful in real life? Let’s take a look at some of the women from the DC Comics’ movies, compared to what they are like in real life.
