Marvel Universe introduced us to some of the most amazing superheroes of all time. This Universe is home to some of the most powerful beings in the cosmos like the Avengers, X-men, Guardians of the Galaxy, Eternals, etc. What’s great about Marvel is the fact that it always portrayed female characters as a force to be reckoned with and has its fair share of powerful female superheroes and female villains capable of doing great deeds.
There are a lot of powerful female characters in the Marvel Universe but in this article, we will be talking about the top strongest female Marvel characters. So, without further ado, let’s begin.
25. Sue Storm
Susan ‘Sue’ Storm is a member of the Fantastic Four, a superteam of adventurers who explore the strange and dangerous corners of the Universe. Susan is the team’s Invisible Woman, able to turn invisible and generate powerful force fields. Susan is also a skilled scientist and leader, helping to keep her team together during difficult times.
Besides having superhuman powers that are very useful and powerful, she is not very physically strong and she relies on her powers during a battle. However, she is a very valuable member of the Fantastic Four and deserves her place on this list.
24. Emma Frost

Besides being a mighty telepath, she is also superhumanly strong and durable when in her diamond form. Her diamond form is her secondary mutation and grants her strength, durability, and stamina, but she can not use her telepathic abilities when in this form.
