Best/Favorite MCU Heroines

    Recommended Posts

    Surprised no one made a ranking of their best/favorite female characters yet...so i'l be the first one to do it. :)


    Now before we count down our favorites females....i would likely add some temporary rules.


    1. It can be either a superheroine like Natasha Romanoff, Wanda Maximoff & Gamora or a normal heroine like Pepper Potts, Betty Ross, Jane Foster & Peggy Carter. Side characters like Maria Hill & Darcy Lewis can be included as well.

    2. It has to be ones from movies only.

    3. They have to be protagonistic/be one of the good guys side, so no villains included. (Sorry, Nebula).


    With that said.... let's begin.


    Here are the notable main females that appeared in Phase 1:

    Despite her really limited screen time, I have a soft spot for Lady Sif. There's just something about her. So:


    Lady Sif






    Honorable mention: T'Challa's "Move or be moved" Dora Milaje.

    In the row of appearance in the MCU:


    Sif (sadly the actrss broke her back - healed, but wont be able to really live up to her role anymore if I got the correct impression glancing over articles then)

    Frigga - to a degree (depends on which film/scene)



    Gamora - there are a couple of scenes I think Gunn was an ~ clichè idiot


    Wanda - to a degree

    Christine (might be future potential too)


    agree to the Dora Milaje mentioning


    Not sure about Betty, I might have to rewatch the film, but there was something off

    Same about Agent 13, didn't get enough scenes to shine


    neutral about Pepper, not a fan, not a hater


    Jane Foster was miscast IMHO, plus later pregnancy forced changes on screenplay = might have been better with another actress

    I even prefered the assistant over her (forgot the name)


    The Ancient One might not be a matching character for this list, but I liked Tilda's performance.

    Any favorite MCU-heroines here that you like the most?

    =  not best acting, best written, best something 😉 I like that approach


    I like best, my top group, per abc:

    Black Widow, but think we do not know the real her a lot, she is, what she needs to be for the moment, adapts. But very no-nonsense, very active,...

    Captain Marvel, but I do split up her role, means I like her the most, before and after she is ....

    Gamora, but think the presentation is partly a bit less than possible per script or direction in GotG 2 in especial

    Hope van Dyne, its increasing, at the start I did like her less than now. I'd list her as Wasp, but as her mother to was the Wasp...

    Maria Hill, I'd like to see her in more scenes. Not the comic version. She seems to be the rock Fury is and can counting on, if she is in one of the movies. Have only seen season 1 of Agents of SHIELD, in case there is something not good.

    Nebula, since she seems to be more than only an angry sibling

    Okoye probably one of the 'coolest' characters ever. Her eyes....

    Valkyrie, hope to see a lot more of her.


    A step less, but mostly bcs I think its needs more screen-time or...

    Maria Rambeau


    Scarlet Witch


    Have to see a lot more, but like something already

    Janet van Dyne

    Christine Palmer (I'd love to see her organising a M.A.S.H. style thing around e.g. the Avengers 'events' or other bigger fights)


    I know, she broke her back and such, but would have loved to see more with Sif too


    Waiting till they grow up mentally, no matter if it is age or time to develop free will based experiences:




    Too young a character to know:

    Cassie Lang

    Maria Rambeau


    If I have not forgotten someone, the others are probably simple o.K., I do not expect them to come back on the long run (not enough scenes...), or....


    The exception:

    I think Jane Foster was wrongly casted. In a way too bad way.

    Darcy Lewis got a lot of flak, but I think without her the movies with Jane Foster in it, would be worse. She helped to balance it out  as fr as it was possible for a side character. I wouldn't mind to get to see her again in a part not focused on getting the flames out, reacting to the next strange whatever.
