10 Most Powerful Female Avengers of All Time

In all honesty, if we were to say who we thought of if someone said "The Avengers" to us, most of us would have to admit that the first characters we'd think of would be male.

Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Spider-Man, and Wolverine are just some of the popular characters who spring to mind when we think of the comic book team - and that's a real shame, because some of the team's most powerful members (in its various iterations) have been female.

We think the female Avengers deserve more recognition, so this article will be dedicated to some of the most formidable examples.

Here are the ten most powerful female Avengers of all time...

Tigra is the super-name of Greer Grant Nelson. She first appeared as Tigra in Giant-Size Creatures #1 in July of 1974, having previously operated under the name The Cat.

She first joined the Avengers in Avengers #211 in September of 1981, and has also been a member of the West Coast Avengers and the Avengers Resistance. In addition, she's taught at the Avengers Academy.

Her powers are the result of a combination of science, magic, and mental energy utilized by Dr. Joeanne Marie Tumulo and other Cat People. She is super-strong, super-fast, has retractable claws and is skilled in the mystic arts to the point that the Eye of Agamotto put her forward as a potential replacement for Doctor Strange as Sorcerer Supreme.

And now we move on to a mutant character whose body stores ambient electromagnetic energy.
