From Batgirl to the White Rabbit, this article examines and ranks the 10 sexiest Batman characters.

Throughout the Batman universe, a number of attractive women have graced the various comic books, video games, cartoons, and movies produced by DC Comics. From supervillains to heroes (and everything in between), beautiful women remain a constant theme within Batman’s various stories and renditions—a trend that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. This article ranks the 10 hottest and sexiest characters to appear in the Batman series. It provides a brief overview of each lady’s powers, abilities, personality traits, and appearance.

Selection Criteria

Selection of the sexiest Batman characters is based on several different criteria.

  • First and foremost, all of the women chosen for this list were selected from all of the existing renditions of the Batman series. This includes movies, video games, cartoons (such as the Batman Animated Series), books, and comics.
  • For ranking purposes, various polls and online surveys were also evaluated to determine which ladies made the “top 10” list.
  • These characters were then evaluated and ranked by the author with “beauty” and overall “sexiness” being the primary criteria for higher rankings.

While this process is certainly limited in its application and subject to personal biases, the author believes them to be the best criterion for ranking the 10 sexiest women in the Batman series.

The lovely Talia al Ghul.

10. Talia al Ghul

  • Real Name: Talia al Ghul
  • Eye Color: Brown
  • Hair Color: Brown

Powers and Abilities

Talia al Ghul (sometimes referred to simply as “Talia”) is the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, and is a love-interest (and enemy) of Batman. Raised from birth for the purpose of managing Ghul’s criminal operations worldwide, Talia maintains an incredible intellect and capacity for learning that is unmatched in the Batman universe.

Aside from her natural business talents and ability to manipulate others for her own desires and wishes, Talia is also well-trained in mixed martial arts, and excels in hand-to-hand combat. She is also quite talented with various weapons, maintaining an almost expert-like knowledge of firearms, explosives, and melee devices. Combined with her slowed aging process and extended lifespan (via the Lazarus Pits), Talia is an incredibly dangerous opponent to Batman, and one that is worthy of both respect and admiration.

Personality and Appearance

Aside from being well-trained and highly-intelligent, Talia al Ghul is best-described as arrogant, obsessive, and single-minded. This causes her to regularly dismiss or underestimate her opponent’s strengths, as she feels that nobody is capable of besting her in either wits or combat. Likewise, her entire life is dedicated solely to the role of achieving her father’s wishes, cleansing the world of those considered to be criminals and deplorables. This causes her to overlook subtle details and viewpoints that could actually provide her with much-needed information pertaining to her enemy’s skills.

In regard to her overall appearance, Talia al Ghul is an incredibly sexy woman. Descended from Chinese and Arab family members, she possesses beautiful dark skin, sensual brown eyes, and long dark hair. To date, Talia’s costume varies significantly between shows, cartoons, and movie appearances. Nevertheless, she is often seen in highly revealing outfits that are both skintight and lowcut, revealing her beautiful curves and cleavage. Combined with her tremendously large bust, it is not difficult to see why Talia al Ghul is one of the sexiest Batman figures ever.

The beautiful Lady Shiva.

9. Lady Shiva

  • Real Name: Sandra Wu-San
  • Eye Color: Brown
  • Hair Color: Black

Powers and Abilities

Lady Shiva (sometimes referred to simply as “Shiva”) is a highly-trained and extremely dangerous assassin that first made her appearance in Batman several decades ago. Raised under the tutelage of a number of martial arts experts, Shiva is an incredibly dangerous opponent that has served as both an enemy and occasional ally to Batman over their long and tumultuous history.

She is highly skilled in Judo, Karate, stick fighting, Kung Fu, as well as Capoeira, Kokusho, and Savate. Likewise, she is incredibly gifted in survival skills, with a propensity towards healing and medicinal use. And while she possesses no superpowers, these mixed martial arts abilities and skills make her one of the most skilled fighters in the world; so powerful, in fact, that she is even able to beat Batman in one-on-one combat.

Personality and Appearance

In conjunction with her martial arts skills, Lady Shiva’s personality can be best-described as courageous, self-willed, stubborn, and even-tempered. As an assassin, she is regularly considered by her opponents as both vicious and indomitable in her spirit, showcasing a ruthless side that shows very little mercy or pity.

Due to her vigilante aspirations, however, Shiva is occasionally persuaded to join causes that beneficial to others, as she seeks to rid the world of scum and villainy. Nevertheless, most would agree that these feelings are motivated purely by her own motivations and desires, as she is highly self-interested.

In regard to Shiva’s appearance, the character is incredibly beautiful with a number of physical attributes that are quite remarkable. Described as tall and slender, Shiva possesses raven-colored black hair, dark brown eyes, and luscious full lips that are often covered in black lipstick that contrasts sharply with her pale skin. She is also quite busty, with a number of curves that are distinguishable through her form-fitting attire. Combined, Shiva is easily one of the sexiest Batman characters in recent memory.

The gorgeous Zatanna Zatara.

8. Zatanna Zatara

  • Real Name: Zatanna Zatara
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Hair Color: Black

Powers and Abilities

Zatanna Zatara (or simply “Zatanna”) is an extremely powerful Homo Magi renowned for her ability to employ magic against the forces of evil. As the daughter of famous magician, Giovanni “John” Zatara, Zatanna soon followed in her father’s footsteps by becoming an illusionist herself at a very young age. It wasn’t long, however, before she found out that she possessed a number of real magical powers herself.

Displaying a mastery over both “mystical and cosmic forces” in the universe, Zatanna is able to manipulate reality through verbal enchantments. She employs these powers for the good of mankind, and has been known to fight alongside both the Justice League and Batman on a number of occasions.

Some of Zatanna’s most powerful abilities include her ability to perform black magic, atmokinesis, and disintegrate entire objects. She is also capable of employing electric blasts out of her hands, flying, healing, and turning invisible when needed. Perhaps one of her most useful powers though is the ability to teleport herself anywhere around the globe.

Personality and Appearance

Zatanna is best-described as an extremely intelligent, highly-confident, and self-assured woman. For those not acquainted with her personally, this combination often comes across as “arrogance.” This assessment is true to a certain extent; however, much of this persona is the result of Zatanna’s upbringing as a showman, where confidence and an outgoing flair was an important component to her financial success as an entertainer. Zatanna is also quite flirtatious, and never misses an opportunity to flirt with those she finds attractive.

In regard to her appearance, Zatanna is an incredibly attractive woman renowned for her slender build, wide hips, and large bust. She also has a beautiful face that is highlighted by long black hair and stunning blue eyes.

And while her costumes are far more modest than many of the ladies appearing on this list (depending on the comic series), her costumes still leave little to the imagination, as her white tops are often low-cut and reveal a great deal of cleavage. Likewise, she is also traditionally seen in black fishnet stockings that reveal a great deal of her legs, along with high-cut black shorts that reveal much of her inner thighs. Taken together, it is not difficult to see why Zatanna is one of the hottest figures in the Batman universe.

The lovely Huntress.

7. Huntress

  • Real Name: Helena Rosa Bertinelli
  • Eye Color: Bluish-Purple
  • Hair Color: Black

Powers and Abilities

The Huntress (also known as Helena Rosa Bertinelli) is a member of the Bat-Family and Birds of Prey. Characterized as a highly-trained and ruthless vigilante, the character first appeared in DC Comic’s “Earth-Two” series as the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. Later renditions of her character, however, scrapped this concept, making her the daughter of one of Gotham City’s prominent Mafia families (batman.fandom.com).

Although she possesses no superpowers of her own, the Huntress is highly-skilled in other aspects that make up for this deficiency. These abilities include a mastery of hand-to-hand combat, mixed martial arts, and an expert proficiency in the use of crossbows. She is also knowledgeable in multiple languages, and is a master of both stealth and various firearms. Taken together, the Huntress is a deadly opponent to nearly any opponent, with the capacity to seriously harm or kill her enemies with relative ease.

Personality and Appearance

The Huntress is best-described as violent, unpredictable, and strong-willed. This personality, however, is masked exceptionally well by her flirtatious nature (especially towards Batman) and her superior intelligence. Nevertheless, she is exceptionally ruthless and is renowned for her steadfast devotion towards accomplishing goals (no matter what the cost may be). For these reasons, her offers to aid Batman in his pursuits is often dismissed outright, as he feels that her chaotic nature is both dangerous and detrimental to his missions.

In regard to appearance, few in the Batman series are capable of matching the Huntress in her sex appeal and charm. With peach-colored skin, long black hair, and bluish-purple eyes, she is aesthetically pleasing in every conceivable way. Highlighting her natural beauty is a tight-fitting purple leotard that reveals much of her thighs and rear, along with a plunging neckline that showcases a great deal of cleavage.

With a large bust and exaggerated curves, the Huntress was clearly designed for a sexualized appearance. As such, she is an easy choice for this list, and is certainly one of the hottest characters to appear in the Batman universe.

6. Dr. Chase Meridian

  • Real Name: Chase Meridian
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Hair Color: Reddish-Blonde

Powers and Abilities

Dr. Chase Meridian is a female character that first appeared in the hit movie, Batman Forever. Played by the beautiful actress, Nicole Kidman, Dr. Meridian is both a psychologist and consultant that works closely with the Gotham City Police Department. She is also a love interest of Batman/Bruce Wayne throughout much of the movie.

Due to her limited appearance within the Batman realm, very little is known about this character. Nevertheless, she is considered an exceptionally intelligent woman with an intellect that rivals that of Bruce Wayne. Likewise, these talents are further augmented by her boxing expertise and proficiency in hand-to-hand combat.

Personality and Appearance

Dr. Chase Meridian can be best-described as intelligent, courageous, and daring. She is also quite self-reliant, with the ability to handle herself in nearly any situation that presents herself. Her one weakness, however, appears to be Batman as she repeatedly flirts and attempts to seduce Batman whenever she is in his presence. This pursuit eventually lands Dr. Meridian in trouble, as she is kidnapped by the Riddler and Two-Face as a means to lure Batman into a well-orchestrated trap.

In regard to her appearance, Dr. Chase Meridian is an incredibly sexy woman with a slim profile, long reddish-blonde hair, long legs, and dazzling blue eyes. She also possesses a number of curves, with wide hips and a large bust that are highlighted by her tight-fitting attire. Combined with her seductive and flirtatious nature, Meridian is one of the sexiest women to grace the Batman series in recent memory. We can only hope that DC Comics will decide to brings her character back for future comics.

5. Batgirl

  • Real Name: Barbara Gordon
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Hair Color: Auburn

Powers and Abilities

Batgirl (also known as Barbara Gordon) is a sidekick of Batman and daughter to Police Commissioner Jim Gordon. Batgirl made her first Batman appearance in 1961, and would later become the first woman to join the Batman family (alongside Robin). Living a dual lifestyle, Barbara Gordon works as both a student at Gotham State University and a crime fighter by night, aiding Batman in his quest to protect Gotham City’s residents from harm.

In terms of powers, she possesses no superpowers of her own; nevertheless, she more than makes up for this deficiency with her physical fitness, agility, and genius-level intellect. She is highly gifted in computer hacking, law, and criminal investigation where her photographic memory provides her an edge over nearly any opponent. Batgirl is also extremely skilled in hand-to-hand combat and mixed martial arts, having learned from some of the best instructors around, Kung Fu master Richard Dragon and Bruce Wayne.

Personality and Appearance

Batgirl can be best-described as fun-loving, spunky, and courageous. She is also exceptionally devoted to her work and the betterment of mankind. In spite of this, Barbara is renowned for her carefree outlook on life, which occasionally causes her to misjudge her enemies and their intentions. Likewise, she can also be quite stubborn (to a fault), causing her to get into situations that are beyond her level of expertise and skill.

In regard to appearance, Batgirl is an extremely attractive woman and is renowned for her auburn-colored hair and beautiful blue eyes. Although considered modest in comparison to the other ladies appearing on this list, her costume still (depending on the series) leaves little to the imagination for viewers, as its skintight features highlight many of her natural curves and large bust. Combined with her upbeat attitude and spirit, Batgirl is by far one of the hottest characters to appear in the Batman realm.

The beautiful Catwoman (also known as Selina Kyle).

The beautiful Catwoman (also known as Selina Kyle).

4. Catwoman

  • Real Name: Selina Kyle
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Hair Color: Black

Powers and Abilities

As with many of the ladies on this list, Catwoman is in possession of numerous talents and abilities that make her a formidable opponent to her enemies (including Batman). For one, Selina Kyle is incredibly gifted with athleticism, and maintains almost superhuman reflexes, agility, and speed (HobbyLark.com). She is also gifted in acrobatic feats, providing her with a natural ability to scale the various rooftops of Gotham City with ease.

Combined with her exception skill in hand-to-hand combat, mixed martial arts, and maintaining stealth (like a cat), Catwoman is a highly capable character/villain within the Batman universe, and can hold her own in nearly any situation that presents itself.

Personality and Appearance

Regarding Selina Kyle’s personality, the character is best-described as both sensuous and flirtatious in her demeanor. She is also quite prideful, with a sense of overconfidence that is often her undoing. And while Catwoman is typically personified as a villain in the Batman universe, she often walks a narrow line between good and evil (resorting to petty theft, while simultaneously aiding Batman on occasion as well). As such, she is a character that is still guided by an innate sense of morality.

Throughout the Batman series, Catwoman has become a major sex symbol of DC Comics; a trait that owes much to her natural beauty, feminine curves, and sensuous personality. In nearly all renditions of her character, artists have generally depicted Catwoman in skintight “catsuits” that leave little to the imagination (while simultaneously concealing her identity with the addition of a black “cat helmet”). As such, Selina Kyle’s natural curves are on full display to audience members, with her large bust, and cleavage (viewed through unzipped tops and low-cut collars) a signature piece of her appearance.

In conjunction with her sensuous green eyes, athletic body, and sexualized energy, Catwoman is easily one of the sexiest characters to grace the Batman franchise in its long history.

The beautiful (and sexy) Harley Quinn.

The beautiful (and sexy) Harley Quinn.

3. Harley Quinn

  • Real Name: Dr. Harleen Quinzel
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Hair Color: Blonde

Powers and Abilities

Although Harley Quinn possesses no superpowers of her own (similar to Catwoman), she is nevertheless extremely gifted in both athleticism and gymnastics. As a result of these natural talents, Quinn is remarkably quick and agile. She is also renowned for her exceptional bravery, as well as her natural ability to lead others (as seen during her time with the Suicide Squad).

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Harley Quinn is also believed to possess a natural immunity to plant-based toxins. This is due to her close relationship with the beautiful Poison Ivy (HobbyLark.com).

Personality and Traits

In regard to Harley Quinn’s personality traits, her overall persona varies significantly depending on the particular series being addressed. Nevertheless, Quinn is typically characterized as a “bubbly” and energetic woman, who is both tireless and charming. In spite of this, she is completely insane, with a demented outlook on life itself (making her extremely dangerous and unpredictable). Combined with her genius-level IQ, explosive bouts of aggression and rage, and her propensity for violence, Harley Quinn is easily one of the most dangerous villains in the Batman universe.

Appearance

Regarding Quinn’s outward appearance, she is not only sexy, but also quite slim and athletic. Although several different renditions of her character have appeared over the years, many of her physical attributes have remained largely consistent. This includes her signature “harlequin style” (hence her name), as well as her extremely revealing attire that tends to show off her legs, upper body, and lots of cleavage. Combined with her incredibly large bust, blonde hair, and dazzling blue eyes, Quinn is easily one of the sexiest and hottest characters to appear in the Batman comics and television series.

The incredibly hot and sexy White Rabbit.

The incredibly hot and sexy White Rabbit.

2. White Rabbit

  • Real Name: Jaina Hudson
  • Eye Color: Pink
  • Hair Color: White

Powers and Abilities

Jaina Hudson (commonly referred to as the “White Rabbit”) is a female character that first appeared in the Batman “New 52” reboot series, known as “Batman: The Dark Knight.” Although very little is currently known about this character (given her relatively recent addition to the series), she is believed to be a particularly clever villainess with a number of powers and abilities.

Capable of creating a physical duplicate of herself, the White Rabbit can be in two separate places at once, allowing her to evade capture with relative ease. Likewise, she is incredibly agile with the ability to outrun nearly any pursuer (including Batman and Robin). This skill is augmented by her incredible stamina that allows her to run full speed without exhibiting fatigue. Combined with her hand-to-hand combat skills, it is likely that the White Rabbit will serve as a fearsome opponent to Batman in future comics.

Personality and Appearance

The White Rabbit is best-described as a woman that is seductive, flirtatious, and mercurial (ever-changing). From the scant evidence available regarding her personality, it is clear that she is both sadistic and masochistic in her overall demeanor, garnering tremendous pleasure out of suffering from other others and herself. She also appears to be exceptionally smart, and seems to always to be calculating her next moves well in advance.

In regard to her appearance, the White Rabbit is a stunning addition to both DC Comics and Batman. Although she exhibits signs of albinism due to her fair skin, violet (pink) colored eyes, and white hair, these traits only serve to amplify her natural beauty, as the White Rabbit has a gorgeous face, slim profile, and large bust that is mesmerizing to behold.

Best-described as scantily-clad, the White Rabbit’s costume leaves almost nothing to the imagination as her long legs, inner thighs, cleavage, and rear are on full display for audience members to see. Combined with her flirtatious nature, these features make White Rabbit one of the sexiest women to appear in the Batman series, and perhaps one of the hottest women in DC Comics.

The gorgeous Poison Ivy.

The gorgeous Poison Ivy.

1. Poison Ivy

  • Real Name: Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Hair Color: Red

Powers and Abilities

Poison Ivy possesses a wide array of powers, including both chlorokinesis and toxikinesis. Through these abilities, she is granted a powerful connection with both plants and trees, allowing her to manipulate them to her general will. They also provide her with substantial control over pheromones, thus, allowing Poison Ivy to seduce a number of individuals (both men and women) to do her bidding.

Toxikinesis, on the other hand, is an especially powerful attribute of Poison Ivy that allows her to kill an individual through touch. Upon coming into contact with her body (through a simple touch or kiss), the individual’s bloodstream is suddenly overloaded with deadly animal and plant toxins, with many becoming paralyzed or dying in the process. The flip side of this power is that she is also immune to nearly any virus, bacteria, or toxin on Earth.

In addition to this set of supernatural powers, Poison Ivy is also gifted with a number of unique abilities that aid her criminal lifestyle. These include super-intelligence, with a special focus in both botany and toxicology. She is also quite gifted in the realm of seduction, and knows how to use her body (and good looks) for personal gain.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly though, Poison Ivy is exceptionally well-trained in the art of hand-to-hand combat (despite limited proficiency in martial arts). This is augmented by her natural agility and speed that allows her to scale (or leap across) most obstacles. This makes her a beautiful (but deadly) opponent in the Batman franchise.

Personality and Traits

In regard to Poison Ivy’s personality, she is best-described as an individual that is both seductive and full of deceit. Characterized as conceited and overly conscious of her physical beauty, she is never afraid to use her female charm as a means of achieving her innermost desires. With that said, Poison Ivy is also quite ruthless, and very rarely displays sympathy or compassion towards others (with the exception of Harley Quinn).

Appearance

Depending on the series, Poison Ivy’s character was clearly drawn for male audiences. She is usually depicted in a tight green bodysuit, with lime-green stockings, and dark-green boots (of varying height). This outfit is almost always revealing, and displays a large bust, lots of cleavage, and an hourglass figure (highlighted by exaggerated curves).

Her sexiest appearance was, without a doubt, in the hit video game known as Batman: Arkham Asylum. Little is left to the gamer’s imagination, as Ivy was seen sporting a revealing red shirt, and a small cluster of leaves that served as “panties.” Combined with her athletic body, bright red hair, and seductive green eyes, Poison Ivy is easily the sexiest character to appear in the Batman universe.
