Top 10 Female Avengers

I don't consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to the Avengers but I've been revisiting a few old story arcs and I've got a good idea of who I like most. This list will probably change a lot over time and also, is in no particular order.

List items

  • Why did I have to search for her by her civilian name? Anyway, Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel/Binary/Whateverthehellyouwanttocallher, is a timeless and well developed character. She, to me, represents Marvel perfectly. Well, all her perfect imperfections do.

  • Poor, poor Wanda. She has been through some nasty crap. I don't particularly like the martyr like status that Remender dude has going on in Uncanny Avengers, but I won't let that affect my affection for her.

  • I loved, loved, loved ALIAS. So I really love, love, love Jessica.

  • Natasha is f__king awesome. Period.

  • Jennifer is who she is and insists on being accepted by society as such. Plus, her being a lawyer is a bonus so you know, coolness personified.

  • She is so powerful, so amazing, and a great representative for women everywhere. I am loving getting to know her better.

  • How can I not include this Shield Maiden? I wasn't too impressed with her short stint in Fearless Defenders but her overall story still resonates. I can't believe how borderline manhating she was way back when. Gives me the giggles.

  • Poor Wasp. She is one of the founding members of the Avengers and yet she gets no respect or proper recognition for it. At least, it seems that way to me. I hope this changes.

  • Another character I am getting to reknow and reloving. I remember her mostly from the Civil War story so I have a lot of reading to do. Her recent breakup with Hawkeye was entertaining...

  • I feel like crying here. Why the hell did they have to kill off this character? So much there, so much to explore and yet, she's gone. One of the most stupid decisions made by Marvel. (insert sad/mad face here)
