3 Wonder Woman / 2 Supergirl – Top 50 Sexiest Comic Book Babes Of All Time | Smartasses Magazine

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman - DC Comics - Top 50 Sexiest Comic Book Babes Of All Time

ALTER EGO: Diana Prince

WHO SHOULD PLAY HER ON TV: Natassia Malthe (not Megan Fox)

FIRST APPEARANCE: All-Star Comics #8 1941

HOTTEST ATTRIBUTES: Who never dreamed of being tied up in WW’s lasso?

Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice… During the World War II era, William Moulton Marston perceived that early comic book characters were predominantly male, and devised Wonder Woman as a reaction to well known characters like Superman, Batman and Captain America. Marston felt that there was a place for a strong female character acting at equal times as a hero and as a role model. Thank goodness he did. In hindsight, there is no doubt that Marston understood the appeal of female empowerment, and is on record as saying so. If he were alive today, he would not only be a fan of She-Ra, Star Sapphire, Poison Ivy and the greater portion of our Top 50- he’d probably be working at our magazine. Either way, there is no doubt in anyone’s minds, that the Amazon Princess is the single most iconic female in comics, and case in point, ask anyone who the ‘Hottest Woman in Comics’ is, and probably forty percent will tell you Wonder Woman. Ask someone the similar question of naming the first female comic book character that comes to mind, and nearly a hundred percent will answer the same. Considering the thousands, upon thousands of comic book babes throughout history, that’s not just big, that’s mind boggling. For us, whether it was Linda Carter, George Perez’s work, the Justice League Animated version or Brian Bolland’s covers, there’s no doubt that this RBH Princess deserves her spot.

Supergirl

Supergirl - DC Comics - Top 50 Sexiest Comic Book Babes Of All Time

ALTER EGO: Kara Zor-El/Linda Lee

WHO SHOULD PLAY HER ON TV: Melissa BenoistHelen Slater (or Megan Fox)

FIRST APPEARANCE: Action Comics #252 1959

HOTTEST ATTRIBUTES: She’s even more powerful than Superman

For many, when you pose the question, “Supergirl or Wonder Woman?” it simply comes down to whether you like blondes or brunettes, and the vote is usually split 50-50. As far as our list is concerned, we realize that it’s certainly surprising after our long string of RBH’s that we would buck the trend and choose the yellow-haired chick over the onyx-mopped babe. But we did. The reasons are simple: First of all, though Wonder Woman is the third most powerful entity in the DC Universe, Supergirl is technically even more powerful than Superman. Secondly, all one need do is go back and read what we said about Psylocke– “Supple yet dangerous”, “deadliness in a downy frame” and “a harmonious balance between soft & cuddly and badass”. So for us the choice was simple.  Part of the reason that, for most, Supergirl doesn’t sit on the throne as the top DC female, is because there have been so many, utterly confusing versions of her: Matrix, Linda Danvers, Kara In-Ze, Linda Danvers who adopted Kara In-Ze’s uniform, Kara In-Ze who adopted the conventional uniform, the Kara Zor-El who was killed off in Crisis On Infinite Earths, Kara Zor-El’s evil twin, the Kara Zor-El of the 2010’s, and of course Power Girl… who is Kara Zor-El of Earth 2 in the current continuum. It’s mindblowing. Then there were all the outfit changes. Honestly, though the hair and artwork style may be a bit outdated, we never minded the very original uniform at all, and in fact, there was something mysteriously hot about the innocence portrayed on some of those old covers. Either she was seen jaded and crying and your heart went out to her, or she was seen doing something ‘seemingly’ evil and it was a bit stimulating. Perhaps the most quintessential was the one Helen Slater wore in the 1984 film, but just about everything in between was pretty bad- the one piece, the scarf, the headband, and the elf shoes. Worst of all however, and perhaps the biggest affront in all of comics, is the horrendous uniform DC gave the Maid of Might in 2011, when they launched their “New 52”- it’s downright deplorable. We choose to not think about it, and prefer to picture her how she’s seen above. In that form, not only is she worthy of the number-two spot on our list, one might even go so far as to say that Supergirl is also, our personal “kryptonite“.
