The 20 Most Inspiring Women in Comic Books

Today is International Women’s Day, and I think its fairly appropriate to give some props to some of the most inspiring women from comic books. These are women who—with or without superpowers—inspire young girls (and those of us who are still young at heart). Real heroes are those who are willing to sacrifice everything for the betterment of others, those who are strong, and brave, and have heart and hope through the darkest of times. These are just a few of the endless inspiring women who encompass these ideals of heroism… and a few of their most iconic, empowering quotes!

“This isn’t a question of what I’m not. This is a question of who I could be.”

2. Wonder Woman

“I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.”
