Sexiest Comic Book Characters

Comic books have showcased a number of strong and sexy female characters over the years, including Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Halle Berry as the Storm, Anna Paquin as the Rogue, Jessica Alba as Invisible Woman and Michelle Pfeiffer as Catwoman, to name a few. A multi-billion pound genius who learns to build a powerful metal suit to fight crime, much like Iron Man.

These characters are among the most attractive comic book women of all time and are among the most dedicated comic book fans in the world. Let’s look at female comic book characters who are, in the eyes of most readers, the hottest heroes. Superheroes in comics have superpowers that are not often mentioned.

Blackfire

What is certain is that she is at the top of the list of sexy female cartoon characters. Blackfire is an anecdotal supervillain that only appears in American comics distributed by Marvel Comics. As one of the sexiest female comic characters of all time, one thing is certain: Blackfire tops the list. BlackFire is the real name of Komandr, an anecdotal character and supervillain who only appears in the American comic book distributed by DC Comics. 

Medusa

Medusa is an anecdotal character who appears in American comics distributed by Marvel Comics. Her name is a part of her character, which comes from Greek folklore, her hair is a characteristic feature of Medusa, like the hair of gorgons. Mockingbird is another anecdotal hero who appears in American comic books distributed by Marvel Comics. 

Mary Jane

No wonder Mary Jane, despite not possessing any special superhuman powers, is the most revered female comic character. You’d think she’d be the least likely figure on this list. Kristen Dust, however, is a memorable actor who played the character of Mary Jane. When surveyed, members of the hookup site BeNaughty rated her their #1 favorite sexy comic book girl.

Halle Berry

Unsurprisingly, these ladies aren’t the stars of the show. Halle Berry is listed on this list despite only playing two female superhero roles, which puts her in my book in a cool category. Comic book characters weren’t drawn in the 80s, so think big breasts and big bottoms, if you will. 

Conclusion

In recent years, female comic book characters have been as heroic as their male counterparts. Thanks to the real female superheroes of the 70s and the urge to represent women, many superheroes and supervillains have begun to find their way into the comic book scene. In celebration, the female cartoon characters are listed here, who are more powerful than men, from the most powerful to the hottest. 

There Will Always Be an Ambush Bug

Warning: geek threat awareness level set to “Milhouse”!

“Postmodern fiction suggests that to re-write or re-present the past in fiction and history is, in both cases, to open it up to the present, to prevent it from being conclusive and teleological …. The question of whose history survives is one that obsesses postmodern novels”—Linda Hutcheon

So, with Infinite Crisis over, DC has (supposedly) finally consolidated all its multiverses and hypertimelines into one earth, New Earth, a stable and coherent place where everyone’s origin makes sense in terms of everyone else’s origin, where history flows in a clean, straight, single line. Smooth surfaces, sharp angles, and hospital corners—that’s the new DC. For now.

52 is the series devoted to exploring that new universe and clarifying the new status quo, and, for all my distaste for IC itself, I’m enjoying 52 quite a bit so far.

But I overheard a conversation at the comics shop last week that raised a good question: with Keith Giffen doing breakdowns and being generally plugged into the new DCU, and with characters new and obscure bound to elbow their way into work as mammoth as 52, will Ambush Bug make an appearance?

This is an important question, I think, and by important I mean utterly pointless, but interesting to tremendous geeks. It’s interesting because Ambush Bug is the very antithesis of the one-world ethos that guides DC’s line these days. It’s not just that he’s a metafictional character who knows that he’s in a comic book, it’s that he remembers comic books that aren’t supposed to have happened anymore at https://paraskasinotfi.com/.

He’s a walking, talking, teleporting, trickster reminder of the foolhardiness of attempting to maintain a stable, consistent shared universe in a medium as persistently ramifying as superhero comics.

There are thousands of events happening every month, often with the same character having simultaneous adventures written by different creators in different contexts, and no attempt to force all of these divergent stories into one large narrative can ever be entirely successful.

There is always excess, something left out or left unattended, some contradiction that doesn’t make sense, and Ambush Bug is the symbol of that excess, as well as a kind of lay historian of the characters, stories, and even storytelling styles that are constantly being eliminated from the official history of the DCU in favor of an alleged coherence.

Ambush Bug points out the bumps and cracks and fissures in a historical narrative that strives to present itself as smooth as glass.

I was all prepared to offer the caveat that Ambush Bug didn’t always serve this function, and that he began his career in the early 80s as a generic crackpot villain—but then I glanced back at those early appearances.

His first adventures were with the New Doom Patrol (DC Comics Presents #52) and the Legion of Substitute Heroes (DCCP #59), teams composed of also-rans and nobodies, teams that represent the dark side—or the silly side, or at least the obverse side—of DC’s mainstream heroes.

Indeed, Superman highlights this aspect of the New Doom Patrol’s nature (in the sort of condescending lecture that is on display at Superdickery) when he first meets them: says Supes, “If memory serves me—and believe me, it usually does—the Doom Patrol is dead—and even if they weren’t, I’ve met them and you’re not it!”

Since the NDP doesn’t occupy a spot in the official memory of DC’s most iconic character, they can’t be real.

And during Ambush Bug’s romp with Infectious Lass, Chlorophyll Kid, Porcupine Pete, and the other Legion Subs, scribes Giffen and Paul Levitz include an editorial caption that reads “Don’t ask when this fits into Legion continuity.”

Of course, editorial captions usually work to strengthen continuity, to show how the events of a particular story are happening before or between or after the events in another contemporaneous book that might otherwise seem to render them impossible; here, the authors simply throw up their hands and admit that there’s really no way to reconcile this tale with the goings-on in the official Legion title.

And dare I push this already tenuous close reading further and point out how the lack of the expected jovial exclamation point at the end of that caption makes it actually seem a bit threatening? Don’t ask when this fits into Legion continuity, or ELSE, because it doesn’t and questions are to continuity like a high wind is to a house of cards.

Anyway, the idea of Ambush Bug as a metafictional avatar of the apocryphal, of the weirdness being squeezed out of the DCU in preparation for and in the aftermath of multiverse-smooshing Crisis on Infinite Earths became more and more a part of his character in various Superman-bedeviling appearances in Action Comics.

He goads a letterer into altering Superman’s sound effects:
